Malaria – Yellow Fever – Health Care
Malaria and Yellow Fever Vaccination in Tanzania | Tanzania Health Care | Local Private Hospitals in Tanzania | Public Hospitals in Tanzania | Ambulance Services in Tanzania | Specialists Tanzania |
As long as you stay up-to-date with your vaccinations and take basic preventive measures, you’re unlikely to succumb to most of the possible health hazards. While Tanzania has an impressive selection of tropical diseases on offer, it’s more likely you’ll get a bout of diarrhoea or a cold than a more exotic malady.
The main exception to this is malaria, which is a real risk throughout much of the country. Road accidents are the other main threat to your health. Never travel at night, and choose buses or private transport over dalla-dallas (minibuses) to minimise the risk.
