Drones are illegal to use in Tanzania without a license and special permit. In order to get a drone permit, the drone operator needs to have a pilots license for aircraft. Once that happens, the request is sent to the defense department for approval. We recommend, due to the cost and length of time it takes to get a drone permit, to just leave your’s at home. If you choose to take one anyway and get caught, you and your guide can end up in jail.
