Travel Tips

It is important to read and know the right Africa travel tips that apply to the most preferred tour destinations like Kenya and Tanzania, which will enable you to maximize your adventure and experience the best of what Africa offers without any limitations.
This includes:  clothing, essential items and vaccination certificates
The most essential items to remember are as follows: -
(a) Personal toiletries
(b) Anti-Malaria tablets
(c) A camera and or binoculars are a must
(d) Camera film and batteries can generally be obtained in any major city or town. But of course the further away you get from civilization, the likelihood of availability decreases - like everything else. So please be sure to have sufficient supplies for your needs prior to embarking on a long trip.
(e) Torch to use when the lights are off (normally at 11.00 pm)
(f) A sleeping bag for camping safaris, especially in Tanzania. (Sleeping bags can be hired from our offices in Kenya or Tanzania).
- You can as well bring any reading or writing material you might need. You will have moments when you want to do something other than nothing at all.

Africa is an extremely photo-opportunistic continent. From panoramic scenery, wildlife and birds, to people and vibrant ceremonies. Rich colour and good low lighting conditions abound. It is considered rude to take pictures of people without asking them first.
-Also remember not to take photos of local police, prison buildings and police stations
-Always carry enough film as it is difficult to get in some remote places. Keep your cameras in a dust resistant, padded case and out of the midday sun.
-A camera charger is important as well and you can always charge your camera after the game-drives in the evening before you go to sleep.
-A 200 mm (or longer) telephoto lens will prove very useful on safari.

Personal Medical Condition
This is important, should you have any particular ailments requiring specialized medication, you should ensure that sufficient stocks are carried by you, during your stay. If you are carrying prescription medicine, you must carry a copy of the prescription with you.
There are no compulsory vaccinations required for entry to Kenya and Tanzania unless you are arriving from an area infected with Yellow Fever, in which case Certificate of Inoculation against Yellow Fever is required from travelers older than one year. Visitors coming from other countries in Africa where Yellow Fever may occur also require a Yellow Fever certificate.
The other recommended vaccinations are Typhoid, Hepatitis and Polio, and anti-malarial medication is essential. Anti-malarial drugs should be taken prior to arrival and should be continued for 4 weeks after leaving Kenya. It is also advisable to try and avoid mosquito bites by using repellent and by wearing suitable cover-up clothes in the evening.
There are good hospitals in the main towns of Kenya while the rural areas have small health centers where one can get basic first aid. It is absolutely essential that all visitors carry some form of medical insurance to cater for any eventualities.

There is an excellent Flying Doctor service in Kenya in the event of a medical emergency, while on safari away from the urban centers.

Hotels and lodges supply clean drinking water but whenever in doubt, please drink only bottled mineral water (which is available in hotels and safari camps). Drinking water from the tap is not encouraged.
It is your responsibility to cater for your own travel insurance. It is imperative that you accomplish this prior to your arrival in Africa, since you will be unable to participate in any traveling activities without it.
