Once you book your holiday, we will provide you with detailed pre-travel preparation. This section mentions a few things you should know before your consider travelling.
Passports and Visas
Please ensure you hold a full 10 year passport and that it is valid for at least 6 months after your return date. The costs of passports and visas are not included in the holiday price. It is entirely your responsibility to ensure that your passport and visa documentation is in order. Failure to do so may lead to denial of exit from your departure country, or of entry overseas. Any costs which consequently arise will be payable by you. It will also be deemed that you have cancelled your holiday and appropriate cancellation charges will be levied.

Vaccinations and Health
We recommend that you check with your own doctor as to which inoculations he/she may consider necessary and available for specific areas. Africa Safari Direct Ltd. cannot be held liable for the failure of clients to comply with the health requirements of countries they intend to visit. Airlines require that any women more than 28 weeks pregnant at the time of return travel should produce medical evidence of their fitness to travel. Even by following recommended precautions, some of our clients may still be susceptible to stomach infections. Whilst we are sorry if this should detract from your holiday enjoyment, we obviously cannot accept any liability in this matter.

Whilst most health precautions and inoculations are optional, you may be required to produce a Yellow Fever certificate in Tanzania or Kenya and, in particular, on Zanzibar. This certificate should not be required if you are visiting either Kenya or Tanzania mainland from a non infected area such as North America and Europe, but is required when crossing from one country to the other or for entering Zanzibar from any destination.

Clients’ bookings are accepted on the understanding that the clients appreciate the possible risks inherent in travel; and in particular, adventure travel activities such as trekking, climbing, and diving.

You are, of course, responsible for your own safety and you should make allowances for the fact that you are visiting less developed countries. The poverty in some countries can be a culture shock. It is therefore tactless for visitors to make a great show of wealth. In general, your own common sense must prevail, but avoid walking around towns or cities at night or too far from civilisation even during the daytime. Please remember in the tropics the sun can be deceptively strong and those inviting crystal clear waters may conceal strong undercurrents, sharp coral or sea urchins and the like. Take every precaution and take heed of local warnings.

The Foreign & Commonwealth Travel Advice Unit may have issued information about your holiday destination. You are advised to check this information on BBC2 (Ceefax) page 470 onwards or on the Internet under the address

Residents of countries other than the UK are advised to check if their Governments have issued information about your holiday destination on the appropriate website.
