Emergencies in Tanzania

In the unfortunate event you find yourself in need of urgent medical care, Arusha Medevac is the only air ambulance service based in Tanzania, providing reliable and professional air evacuation and specialised medical air transport service out of Arusha Airport. AMREF Flying Doctors is another long-standing and reliable medevac option operating out of Nairobi.

The best bet would be to request a medevac to the nearest private hospital in either Dar es Salaam, Arusha, Mwanza, Mbeya or Morogoro. Steer clear of the overcrowded and under-resourced government hospitals. For serious medical emergencies you should medevac directly to Nairobi where you will find East Africa’s foremost healthcare facilities, including the Aga Khan University Hospital and Gertrude’s Children’s Hospital.
