The below important information is for each traveler to read through and to understand before arriving on your African safari. Please contact Adventour consultants should there be any queries.
Travel Insurance (Compulsory)
All travelers booking a safari to Southern Africa must have adequate travel insurance to cover that unexpected event where your personal belongings could go missing or be stolen while on safari. Travel Insurance is generally issued through paying for a safari using your credit card. This goes hand in hand with adequate medical insurance which is compulsory as activity providers on safari may refuse participation of activities without proper insurance in place. Should you not have medical insurance you may be required to pay cash before being airlifted should this become necessary.
Please note that we need to be informed of any pre-existing health conditions such as diabetes or asthma or any other condition that requires prescription medicine. Please note that Adventour or any of its travel partners will not be held liable or responsible for damage or loss to such medication and the safe-keeping of such medication must be looked after by its respective user.
The information here is just a brief explanation and should not be used as a replacement for consultation with your local doctor. Adventour and its partners will not be held liable for any advise provided on this page and urges you to seek consultation with your Doctor before travel to Southern Africa.
