My travel insurance company suggested this hospital for a dentist. It was clean, friendly. Dr. Jagga is very professional, friendly and honest. He told me what he suspected and the next steps. Unfortunately I was moving on to another country in a few days so there wasn't time to do the work but he assured me I had no infection(which I was concerned about) and it could wait a few days. 50,000 shillings for consultation; 50,000 for xray. Would go back again.

I had a problem with my front tooth, which needed removing and a bridge fitted. Dr Jagga was extremely professional and did a fantastic job - I can highly recommend him as a dentist, plus the price wasn't too bad either.

My relative have been admitted here at Tasakhta Global hospital for 1 week, the care I was recieved from this hospital was so good. They try hard to provide care to the patients and close monitoring to their patients.... NURSES play major role on providing care to the patients, and conditions of this hospital is good and clean and care is so much good..... Thanks so much, AMPOLA GLOBAL HOSPITAL is the best hospital among the hospital in Tanzania I always remember Mr. Sanga from ICU he is a calm and trained professional

I had an emergency while traveling in Zanzibar and had to get my apendix removed at Ampola Tasakhtaa Hospital. Dr. Jackson and Dr. Alex took very good care and I felt in good hands during the whole stay. The nurses were kind and caring. Overall a good experience, despite the situation.
