If you’re looking to plan a safari holiday to Africa, but are unsure where to start, we can help you. Complete the form below and let’s get started with your unique itinerary.
Travellers are advised that visa requirements are different for each country in Africa and are subject to change. Additionally, visa procurement is the responsibility of the traveller and not Wild Safari Guide. Most visas for African countries can be obtained on arrival. However, travellers should check the visa requirements for the country they are travelling to. Furthermore, it is important to note that your passport should be valid for at least six months from your departure date, and there should be at least two to three blank pages for any visa.
When travelling to Africa, you will need a few vaccinations before departure, and we highly recommend talking to your doctor or local travel clinic before. At a minimum, and with any trip to Africa, travellers are recommended to get the following vaccinations as a precaution: the routine vaccinations such as measles, mumps, rubella, polio, tetanus, diphtheria, and whooping cough. Furthermore, hepatitis, typhoid, and yellow fever vaccinations could be required, as well as anti-malaria treatment.
While numerous destinations and camps in Africa have age restrictions when it comes to planning a safari holiday with the family, there is always a self-drive option for those keen on this route. Some countries and lodges require children to be at least eight years old, while others have a strict policy of no children under the age of 16. It is important to check with each lodge or safari park to better understand their restrictions and/or requirements.
Wild Safari Guide highly recommends all travellers to have travel insurance before embarking on a safari holiday adventure in Africa. Generally, any safari or holiday bookings made through travel agencies or tour operators require comprehensive travel insurance before a booking is confirmed. Likewise, when booking with safari lodges or camps directly, some will not allow guests to partake in activities unless they have valid travel insurance to protect travellers financially and medically.
