Your safety and enjoyment when travelling with African Travels are of the utmost importance to us, which is why it is essential that you have arranged adequate travel insurance to cover your whole trip.
All African Travels tours require travel insurance and we do ask for a copy of your travel insurance policy to be shown to your tour leader prior to departure.
Wherever you are in the world you can book your travel insurance online and have your documents emailed through to you. Please dont forget to bring your documents with you as your tour leader will need to see them.
Do note that it is a condition of booking that you have contacted your insurers to confirm that the cover you have arranged is appropriate for ALL your requirements, taking into account the remote nature of overland travel, and that any hazardous activities you may intend to undertake are fully covered, including whitewater rafting on grade 5 rapids, scuba diving, trekking Kilimanjaro, volunteer work, lion walks, tandem skydiving and bungee jumping.
When selecting insurance carefully consider the cancellation policy, as well as coverage for any valuables you might take. If you buy insurance in the UK you should check that your policy is valid if you are a non-UK resident and the provision for one-way travel if this is required.
Remember when travelling it is important to take all sensible precautions in regards to your security, safety and health, including taking precautions to avoid illness such as malaria. We advise you to make an appointment with a travel clinic as soon as possible after deciding to travel. Your travel insurance might also be affected by the relevant government’s Travel Advice for the countries on your route. Do stay up to date with the latest official government Travel Advice.
