Frequently Asked Questions
A successful tour is dependent on you being taking some basic precautions before you leave.
You should visit your doctor and obtain advice on the latest health precautions, as vaccination requirements change all the time. Vaccines that may be recommended for travelers to Africa include those for tetanus, diphtheria, polio, typhoid, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, yellow fever, rabies and meningitis. Some of these vaccines may not become effective immediately, or may require more than one dose, so make sure you obtain them enough in advance for them to be effective. Proof of vaccination (especially yellow fever, which is mandatory in most African countries) may be required for entry into a destination country.
If you are taking prescription drugs, make sure you have an adequate supply of medication for the duration of your tour, as well as a copy of your prescription.
It is essential that you arrange your own own comprehensive medical, travel, and personal accident insurance in you country of origin well in advance of your safari. This must include cancellation insurance to cover you in the unlikely event you have to cancel your trip. Proof that you have done this will be required at the time of making your final payment to us.
You may require a visa depending on which country you come from. We will, of course, assist you where we can to obtain a visa, but it is your responsibility to ensure that you have an entry visa for each country you will be visiting well before you arrive in Africa.
Make sure that your passport has at least 4 free pages in it and that it is valid for at least 6 months beyond your date of arrival in the last country you visit.
