We cannot stress enough how important both medical & travel insurance is! We advise that you purchase insurance as soon as you have made your booking to cover any pre-safari issues, most notably cancellation due to ill-health or a personal emergency at home. We also strongly recommend that all guests have insurance for the duration of the safari that provides against personal injury, medical evacuation & repatriation, loss, damage, theft, cancellation, delay, etc and specifically for activities that could be considered ‘extreme’.
Many properties now insist on obtaining proof of your medical insurance upon our confirmation of your booking to ensure that you are suitably assisted in any event. A safari is an investment and we would like our guests to feel comfortable and safe in the knowledge that this investment is protected – we have seen first-hand how a guest’s experience could be ruined because of circumstances out of their control, potentially resulting in additional costs that could be covered by an insurance company. You will need to purchase your insurance upon confirmation of your safari and we will provide you with the necessary documentation. Please read all of the details of your cover carefully to ensure that you have secured appropriate protection.
Based on experience and the level of cover, we can recommend the following companies. If you already have personal Medical Insurance Cover, then please do consult with them to add the applicable Travel Insurance Cover. Several credit cards do also offer Medical & Travel Insurance benefits and we recommend that you contact them to understand the cover.
