Dear Customers, Partners, and our communities.
Our thoughts go out to those affected by the situation. We at Dolphin Safaris and Tours have been taking actions to ensure the protection of all stakeholders. We are meeting the minimum requirements as set down by the WHO, as well as additional measures relating to education and sanitisation procedures of all work spaces, vehicles and operating equipment.
Additionally, we are closely monitoring the safety of any destination, accommodation facility and place any of our guests will come into contact with, and assure all that we will not compromise either our guests or employees wellness.
We will monitor the situation frequently whilst adhering to advice from the authorities.
Yours at Dolphin, Fahim Bagha, General Manager.

The Tanzanian government has taken measures to curb the spread of coronavirus such as closing schools, colleges and universities, but has not taken the route favored by many of its neighbors by imposing a lockdown as it could badly affect people living on a hand-to-mouth basis.
