Yes and no. But this is a good thing! We’ve heard that it is possible to get cell service on Mt. Kilimanjaro, but I will be trekking with the idea that it is non-existent. In the summer of 2022, the Tanzanian government announced that it was installing WiFi on Kilimanjaro, to be completed by the end of that year. Here too, I’ll be expecting not to find WiFi — and be ecstatic if we do! I’ll be using the WhatsApp as my primary method of communication on those occasions we do have cell or WiFi service.
Cell service are available in the main cities in Tanzania and along major roadways though again cell service should not be expected.
