In Summary
  • Under the agreement, Kenyan registered vehicles will now drop tourists in Namanga, Arusha, Dodoma, Moshi, Musoma and Lunga
  • Tourists’ vehicles from the neighbouring country will continue dropping tourists in all towns in Kenya except in airports and tourist sites

Tour operators from Kenya will now be allowed to drop tourists in specific towns in Tanzania.

This follows an agreement between the two countries during a meeting held in Arusha, Tanzania, last week.

Under the agreement, Kenyan registered vehicles will now drop tourists in Namanga, Arusha, Dodoma, Moshi, Musoma and Lunga. Kenyan tour operators have been against the rule that requires them to drop tourists at the border for them to be picked up by Tanzanian tour operators.

However, Kenya has been allowing Tanzanian tour operators to bring tourists even to national parks and airports.

In the new deal signed by Tourism Secretary Phyllis Kandie and her Tanzania counterpart Lazaro Nyalandu, tourists’ vehicles from the neighbouring country will continue dropping tourists in all towns in Kenya except in airports and tourist sites.
