Throughout the tour, be prepared to engage in walking for a minimum of 30 minutes to an hour on a daily basis, mainly on even terrains including cobblestone streets, interspersed with occasional hills or staircases. To fully immerse in the tour, travellers should be in good health and able to walk unaided. While our team will be at hand to assist with luggage, it’s important that travellers are also comfortable managing their own belongings on occasion.
It’s critical to understand that Africa Travellers, along with the accompanying Tour Director or guide, are unable to offer individualized mobility assistance. Their primary objective is to ensure a seamless and enlightening journey for the entire group. If you have any physical constraints or concerns about mobility, we urge you to reach out to us before booking your reservation.
The arrangement of round-trip flights is the responsibility of the traveller, as our current packages do not include group flight bookings. However, should you require any assistance with securing your flight reservations, our team stands ready to aid you. Upon arrival, an Africa Travellers representative, easily identifiable by their sign, will be there to welcome you and escort you to your hotel. Kindly note that all transfers between the airport and subsequent destinations throughout your journey are comprehensively included in your package with us.
We recommend packing attire that is lightweight and comfortable, with an emphasis on items that can be layered to accommodate varying temperatures. Additionally, bringing along a sturdy pair of walking shoes or sneakers is highly suggested to guarantee a comfortable sightseeing and touring experience.
We highly recommend consulting with your doctor or healthcare provider at least 60 days prior to your trip, to stay informed about any potential health risks or entry requirements pertaining to your African destination. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention website (cdc.gov) serves as a valuable resource for this information. A yellow fever certificate is often required for travel to most African countries. Don’t hesitate to reach out to our team for any specific health queries you might have.
If you rely on daily medication, it’s crucial to carry sufficient supplies to cover the duration of your tour, factoring in any possible delays. Additionally, if you have any dietary restrictions or food allergies, please notify Africa Travellers a minimum of 30 days before your departure date by giving us a call.
The team at Africa Travellers strongly advocates for securing travel insurance, whether you’re journeying domestically or internationally. Lacking insurance, you could be held liable for the costs of any medical services you might require during your trip.

We encourage you to explore diverse insurance options to find the one that best suits your travel needs.

While your hotel may have amenities such as irons and other small appliances available, their availability cannot be guaranteed.
All the hotels we select for our travellers provide Wi-Fi access. However, please note that our tour buses are not equipped with Wi-Fi. If you intend to utilize your mobile device during the tour, we recommend reaching out to your service provider to inquire about any potential roaming charges.
We suggest carrying a combination of cash and cards for your travels across Africa, as the exchange rates can often be more favourable in the host country. Upon arrival, you can conveniently exchange your money to the local currency at the airport, and our Tour Guide from Africa Travellers will be on hand to assist if necessary.
We advise having both debit and credit cards that are compatible with the EMV chip system for maximum compatibility. Prior to your journey, inform your bank and credit card company about your travel plans to prevent any misunderstanding regarding international transactions. Furthermore, consult with your home bank about any potential international withdrawal fees and restrictions.
