Safari info & travel tips for easy travel OUT IN AFRICA

African safari travel tips

USA passport and airline tickets lying on a world map

Some travel tips and safari notes to ensure a hassle-free journey outinafrica...

  • flights into Africa

    Choose your own holiday dates & book online with airline of your choice. Last minute air tickets are pricey so book early - and save good money. Check rates on SAA, BA, Virgin, Delta, KLM, Qantas, Iberia and the very efficient Emirates (via Dubai)

  • which airport?

    Most clients fly into Cape Town airport or Johannesburg's Oliver Tambo airport. However, if you are going on safari, ideally fly into Cape Town (start your holiday here), then do the safari - and fly out of Johannesburg.

  • passport and visa

    Double check visa requirements for all African countries you plan to visit. You also need TWO blank pages, side by side in passport, PER BORDER ARRIVAL and passports to be valid for at least another 6months after DEPARTURE DATE. Keep travel docs, proof of accommodation/sufficient funds handy and double check SA entry requirements for traveling with children

  • traveling with children

    South African law regards any person younger than 18 years as a child. Please refer to SA Home Affairs for specific regulations and requirements. To avoid frustration, delays and inconvenience at the time of travel, carry an Unabridged Birth Certificate, and where relevant, certified copies of all other documentation and letters.


  • honeymoon

    Do a honeymoon safari and qualify for some discounts and specials. In some cases the bride gets to stay at a cool 50% discount... This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

  • how many nights on safari

    You can do 2nts on safari (a bit rushed…) while 3nights is just perfect. OR spend 2nts at one safari lodge - then add-on 2nts at another lodge. We also suggest keeping the best for last so do the safari(s) at the END OF YOUR HOLIDAY
  • travel insurance

    All guests visiting Botswana, Namibia, Tanzania and Kenya MUST have comprehensive travel, medical, cancellation, curtailment and default insurance for the duration of their trip. Due to the remoteness of safari lodges in these countries, it is VITAL to be covered for accidental death and disability; major medical; emergency medical evacuation; loss of personal effects, trip cancellation and any other unforeseen circumstances. Proof of insurance required at border posts.
  • malaria

    Malaria meds are strongly advised for guests visiting Kruger Park, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Victoria Falls, northern Namibia, Tanzania and Kenya. Please consult your doctor as medication commences PRIOR to arrival in africa. Also pack lightweight long sleeved shirts and trousers with closed shoes for evenings and early morning when mosquitoes are most active.

  • what to pack for safari

    Most importantly, if you are flying on a charter flight to any game safari lodge, travel LIGHT as safari charters require 15kg max per person in a soft bag with no solid frames or wheels. Pack t-shirts, shorts, sandals, sun hat, sun glasses, sunscreen and swimming costume, long sleeved shirts, trousers & closed shoes for evenings when mosquitoes are most active. Pack lightweight, neutral colours plus a pair of comfortable walking shoes or boots. A warm jacket, scarf, gloves and thermals ensure comfort on chilly winter drives. Don't forget insect repellent, malaria meds and bring spectacles rather than contact lenses.
