Trip Tips






  • Always stay hydrated when travelling over long distances.
  • Ensure that valuable items are stowed away safely.
  • Malaria prophylactics are necessary for travel to this region, and should be taken 24 hours before departure, once daily in the Kruger Park area, and continued for a period of seven days after your return. Please make sure that you have sufficient tablets to last the full duration of your trip. Please consult your doctor for the best option or visit travelclinic.co.za.
  • Most lodges and camps provide mini-toiletries. In case your luggage goes astray, we recommend that you keep vital medication, toiletries and a change of clothing with you in your carry-on baggage.
  • We strongly recommend that valuable items should not be included in your checked-in baggage: fragile items, money, jewellery, precious metals, valuable documents, cameras, pocket computers and mobile phones.
  • You should bring along all required prescription medication, as well as a top-up script from your doctor.
  • The African sun can be harsh. Bring along a wide-brimmed sun hat, sun screen (min SPF 30) and lip balm.
  • Tipping is not compulsory, but is always enthusiastically received and much-needed. It is best to tip in the local currency.
  • Most roads are tarred and in reasonably good condition. You will be travelling in luxury coaches for all transfers and, when in the Kruger Park, in land cruisers.
  • The animals you may encounter are wild and potentially dangerous. Please listen carefully to your guide when he/she instructs you on precautions, and always obey park rules.
