1. Is traveling to Africa risky?
You will feel completely protected if you follow these guidelines. Some of the places you visit will be run-down by our standards, and flashing money or jewelry is a bad idea. Leave your jewels at home and only bring minimal amounts of cash with you. Passports and valuables should be left in hotel safes or with camp administrators.
Thanks to our African travel partners (tour operators and hotels/lodges), we have a significant presence in Africa. In addition, our local offices in Africa provide 24-hour emergency help, and our clients can feel safe and secure traveling with us since we have personnel on hand to deal with any concerns that may arise.
You will find the individuals friendly, helpful, and eager to please throughout your journey. The land's beauty and peacefulness, the beautiful animals, and the people's hospitality will all contribute to memories that will last a lifetime.
2. What can you tell me about travel warnings and advisories issued by the government?
All travel advisories are kept up to date by us. We will tell you if a new travel warning is issued before your departure date. However, we strongly advise you to consult the United States Department of State website at https://travel.state.gov for the most up-to-date information.
3. Do I require immunizations?
We recommend that you consult your travel counselor or visit the Center for Disease Control's website at http://www.cdc.gov for the most up-to-date information.
4. Is it safe to drink the water?
In most localities, water is safe to drink, but bottled water is available in most places if you want. If you don't have access to bottled water and don't want to drink the tap water, a club soda left open and flat is an excellent substitute.
5. Do I require malaria treatment?
Malaria is prevalent in most of Africa. If you're visiting a malaria-free location, your African Travel, Inc. safari consultant will let you know. Furthermore, we strongly suggest you speak with your physician before starting your vacation for information on malaria precautions.
6. Will someone be waiting for us at the airport when we arrive?
All of our clients are greeted with a "meet and greet." Our local offices in Africa assist 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
7. Should I purchase travel insurance, and how much does it cost?
We recommend that you purchase travel insurance. Our insurance partners can provide you with a complete travel policy. Your Africa Golf Safari consultant will be able to point you in the right direction for additional information. In addition, our vendors incur cancellation costs, which we have no control over. Insurance will protect you against costly cancellation fees, trip interruption, and misconnection, as well as illness or accident while traveling.
