Below are just 5 of the most frequently asked questions we receive about traveling to and through Africa:

Is it safe to travel to and through Africa?
Wherever you travel, safety is always a concern. And traveling to and through Africa is no different. Although southern and eastern Africa are safe destinations to travel to, you are still traveling outside of your native country; therefore, all basic travel precautionary measures should be taken into account. Finding a travel professional who is willing to take great lengths to ensure your safety and who will guide you on all preparation steps for your trip is a must. This ensures that you have a safe and enjoyable trip with minimal stresses. It is the duty of your travel professional to make sure you are safe while traveling abroad.
Planning ahead and researching are some one of the best things you can do to ensure that you are prepared and safe during your trip-this applies for anywhere you go.

How do we get around when traveling through Africa?
Because many of the camps and lodges you’ll be staying at are in remote regions, you’ll most likely take one or several charter flights during your stay in Africa. Guests can choose to embark on private charters or scheduled charters. Private charters are completely private and only serve your group. Scheduled charters transport your group, as well as other travelers outside of your group. If your itinerary includes travel on a small aircraft, there are serious luggage and personal weight restrictions that must be taken into account. After you’ve booked, ask your travel professional to provide you with a detailed description of weight requirements for your particular flights and regions of travel. There are also ground transports that are offered between camps and countries. This depends based on the distance between your current point and your next destination.

How much does an African safari vacation cost?
A trip to Africa can range everywhere from low-budget to extremely high-end and luxurious. Know your budget prior to travel when choosing a safari travel agent, as some will only plan trips that are within a certain price range.
If you’re looking to stay in renowned and trusted accommodations and experience superior and well-organized tours, you’ll most likely be spending upwards of $8,000 per person for your trip.
Just keep in mind that if you are looking for a high-end experience, it’s important to find a travel professional who pays strict attention to detail and who will go above and beyond for you. It’s also important to understand the travel professional’s reputation with tour providers, accommodations, and past clients.

What types of health precautions are necessary before traveling to Africa?
Some countries throughout southern and eastern Africa do carry malaria, yellow fever, and other diseases that require pills and / or vaccinations. Therefore, consult with your healthcare professional or health department about precautions you should take prior to departing. We strongly suggest getting anti-malaria tablets from your doctor before traveling to any countries with malaria. When you book your trip, ask your travel professional to guide you on any medical precautions you should take, based on the countries you have chosen to visit.

What are the accommodations like in southern and eastern Africa?
There are all different types of accommodations in Africa, ranging everywhere from mobile camps to non-mobile camps, villas to safari houses, and lodges to hotels. All of these types of accommodations can be extremely lavish and many include modern amenities such as en-suite facilities and hot and cold water.
