Yes. Tanzania requires proof of jab of those coming from countries with risk of YF and Uganda is one.

Tanzania requires yellow fever vaccination regardless of where one comes from. So yes, you will need it if you are going to Zanzibar. You would still have to take a ferry to reach Zanzibar on the last leg of your journey.

Enjoy your trip!

Presently,Tanzania is not requiring proof of yellow fever vaccination from everyone. They do require the certificate from those coming from a country with a risk of yellow fever. Passengers coming from Amsterdam to Tanzania have reported for months now that they have not been asked for the certificate up on arrival.

Steve, thank you. You are right! The rule has changed it seems last year or in 2011. However, as you said in post #1 YF is still required coming from UG.
