We insist clients on paying a non-refundable amount for insurance per specific vehicle provided. Please refer to our terms and conditions here.

    CROSSING THE BORDER

    PARK ENTRANCE REGULATIONS- KENYA:

    Unfortunately, due to trade barriers that exist between Kenya and Tanzania, all vehicles made for safari(our Landcruiser Hard Top with pop-up roof) are supposed to be used in the same country registered. Meaning, not any Tanzanian registered tour vehicle is allowed into the Masai Mara and Samburu National Reserve. PLEASE CONSULT GLADIOLA ADVENTURE WHEN PLANNING TO ENTER AFOREMENTIONED NATIONAL PARKS IN KENYA, PROVIDED IT IS SELF DRIVE.

    BORDER CROSSING FEE AND COMESA INSURANCE

    Driving In Tanzania Addons

    NAVIGATION:

    For navigational needs on your self-drive, we recommend installing Maps.me on your smartphone before you travel -it is a free app. Download the Tanzania maps and enjoy driving with GPS offline. You can find almost every lodge and campsite plotted on the Maps.me app.

     

    IN CASE OF BREAKDOWN OR ACCIDENT.

    Please contact Gladiola Adventure offices immediately. Take pictures of the damaged vehicle and share them with us so we can process a police report.

    For minor issues with the car, on your call, we will direct you to the nearest mechanic workshop in one of our network of workshops in Tanzania. In case a car cannot be fixed within 24 hours, a replacement car from Arusha will be delivered to you so you can continue your journey.

    NOTE: Clients are strictly NOT ALLOWED to hire drivers or guides out of our team. If you need a driver-guide let us know and someone will come to where you would like. Make sure you keep your camping gear well and make sure you have not taken other companies’ gear with you by mistake.

    Please always contact Gladiola Adventure first. Our phone (+255 754 409 437) number is available 24h/day, we will try to solve the problem to the best of our ability.

    Refer to our terms and conditions, published on this website, for more information.

    HOW TO DEAL WITH TRAFFIC POLICE IN TANZANIA

    Always curious and alert are traffic police in Tanzania. Expect a pull-over more than twice or with every other three traffic police you meet; always on their white-colored matching outfits. They will ask for your driving license;  any valid license from your country or an international driving license is acceptable here in Tanzania.

    They also will check if the car is insured, the condition of the tires, and the required rescue tools, fire extinguisher, reflectors triangles, and first aid kit – all of which are taken care of when renting a car from us. Surprisingly enough, sometimes, you will be pulled over and end up having a friendly chat with an officer; not all pullovers are because of anything related to the law, but rather a good exercise on the few Swahili words you picked up.

    There is nothing to accuse you of, provided that you did not break the law (speeding, dangerous overtaking, etc.). If you committed an offense, you would receive a fine, payable via mobile money and bank deposit; please keep the ticket and call the Gladiola Adventure office. We will make the payment for you, saving you a lot of time, and then you can refund us in cash upon car handover. However, please avoid speeding, and dangerous overtaking to preserve the Self Driver’s image and our company. Keep the self-driving business from being banned by the Government, and drive responsively. In case of any challenges be it mechanical or something to camping gear or yourselves, please contact us before you involve other people.

    We insist on all the agreements on the repair of the vehicle should be done by Gladiola Adventure Ltd.

We want to afford you a more relaxed experience, while you learn more about the local culture and wildlife in Tanzania.

      For the additional cost of $40 / day, all the vehicles and suggested routes published on our website are also possible to book with a local driver-guide or cook for an additional fee of $40/day for the driver guide and $25/day for the cook. Self-driving with a local driver-guide is, the most flexible customized safari, you can ever have.

      Please Note: We re-strict clients from hiring drivers out of gladiola adventures, we have had terrible experiences with this. Please call Gladiola Adventures L.t.d for such inquiries.

      PRE-BOOKED ACCOMODATIONS (NO HANDLING FEE )

      To experience the privacy and flexibility of a self-drive safari with peace of mind about which route to take and where to stay on your safari holiday in Africa book one of our competitively priced packages with accommodation included. Or share your safari program with us so we could book your accommodations in advance; no handling fee.

      INSURANCE

      Gladiola Adventure cars have comprehensive insurance against damage associated with accidents and fire; and third-party liability to property and bodily injury. Personal injury and possessions are not covered on this type of insurance but are subjected to your medical and travel insurance. We insist clients on paying a non-refundable amount for insurance per specific vehicle provided. Please refer to our terms and conditions  here.

      CROSSING THE BORDER

      PARK ENTRANCE REGULATIONS- KENYA:

      Unfortunately, due to trade barriers that exist between Kenya and Tanzania, all vehicles made for safari(our Landcruiser Hard Top with pop-up roof) are supposed to be used in the same country registered. Meaning, not any Tanzanian registered tour vehicle is allowed into the Masai Mara and Samburu National Reserve. PLEASE CONSULT GLADIOLA ADVENTURE WHEN PLANNING TO ENTER AFOREMENTIONED NATIONAL PARKS IN KENYA, PROVIDED IT IS SELF DRIVE.

       

      BORDER CROSSING FEE AND COMESA INSURANCE

        Gladiola Adventure cars have comprehensive insurance against damage associated with accidents and fire; and third-party liability to property and bodily injury. Personal injury and possessions are not covered on this type of insurance but are subjected to your medical and travel insurance. We insist clients on paying a non-refundable amount for insurance per specific vehicle provided. Please refer to our terms and conditions  here.

        CROSSING THE BORDER

        PARK ENTRANCE REGULATIONS- KENYA:

        Unfortunately, due to trade barriers that exist between Kenya and Tanzania, all vehicles made for safari(our Landcruiser Hard Top with pop-up roof) are supposed to be used in the same country registered. Meaning, not any Tanzanian registered tour vehicle is allowed into the Masai Mara and Samburu National Reserve. PLEASE CONSULT GLADIOLA ADVENTURE WHEN PLANNING TO ENTER AFOREMENTIONED NATIONAL PARKS IN KENYA, PROVIDED IT IS SELF DRIVE.

        NAVIGATION:

        For navigational needs on your self-drive, we recommend installing Maps.me on your smartphone before you travel -it is a free app. Download the Tanzania maps and enjoy driving with GPS offline. You can find almost every lodge and campsite plotted on the Maps.me app.

         

        IN CASE OF BREAKDOWN OR ACCIDENT.

        Please contact Gladiola Adventure offices immediately. Take pictures of the damaged vehicle and share them with us so we can process a police report. In case of an incident involving one or more vehicle(s), details of these vehicle(s) and their driver(s) should be identified and reported, such as the driver’s ID, telephone number, number plate, and insurance registration number.

        For minor issues with the car, on your call, we will direct you to the nearest mechanic workshop in one of our network of workshops in Tanzania. In case a car cannot be fixed within 24 hours, a replacement car from Arusha will be delivered to you so you can continue your journey.

        NOTEClients are strictly NOT ALLOWED to hire drivers or guides out of our team. If you need a driver-guide let us know and someone will come to where you would like. Make sure you keep your camping gear well and make sure you have not taken other companies’ gear with you by mistake.

        Please always contact Gladiola Adventure first. Our phone (+255 754 409 437) number is available 24h/day, we will try to solve the problem to the best of our ability.

        Refer to our terms and conditions, published on this website, for more information.

        HOW TO DEAL WITH TRAFFIC POLICE IN TANZANIA

        Always curious and alert are traffic police in Tanzania. Expect a pull-over more than twice or with every other three traffic police you meet; always on their white-colored matching outfits. They will ask for your driving license;  any valid license from your country or an international driving license is acceptable here in Tanzania.

        They also will check if the car is insured, the condition of the tires, and the required rescue tools, fire extinguisher, reflectors triangles, and first aid kit – all of which are taken care of when renting a car from us. Surprisingly enough, sometimes, you will be pulled over and end up having a friendly chat with an officer; not all pullovers are because of anything related to the law, but rather a good exercise on the few Swahili words you picked up.

        There is nothing to accuse you of, provided that you did not break the law (speeding, dangerous overtaking, etc.). If you committed an offense, you would receive a fine, payable via mobile money and bank deposit; please keep the ticket and call the Gladiola Adventure office. We will make the payment for you, saving you a lot of time, and then you can refund us in cash upon car handover. However, please avoid speeding, and dangerous overtaking to preserve the Self Driver’s image and our company. Keep the self-driving business from being banned by the Government, and drive responsively. In case of any challenges be it mechanical or something to camping gear or yourselves, please contact us before you involve other people.

        We insist on all the agreements on the repair of the vehicle should be done by Gladiola Adventure Ltd.
