Please demand a receipt. However to save line-up at the airport, we recommend that you obtain visas in advance from the particular country embassy located in your country.

9. Would you recommend Malaria Medication?
Yes, because its very common in East Africa.

Among recommended tables for this are Malarone and Larium. We also recommend insect repellents in addition to the above. Also, try to get away from all bugs (especially tsetse flies in some areas in Tarangire and Western Serengeti) while on the safari that might bother you.

10. How soon do I have to book your tour?
We recommend at least 6~9 months before the day you plan to start a safari. However, the earlier the better.

11. Do you customize a tour?
Yes, we do! Let us know your needs and we will deliver it.

12. What is the migration?
Animal Migration in East Africa refers to the movement of animals between Serengeti and Mara parks.

In late May / early June wildebeests and zebras begin their annual migration from western Serengeti thru the northern Serengeti to the Mara crossing the Mara river.

They reach Masai Mara park sometime in mid July /early August depending on rain endings.
After the short rains in the month of November, the herds move back into Serengeti and make their way to the southern pastures where they rest and feed through the rains until their search for better grazing leads them back north in their annual migration once again.

13. When is the wildebeests / zebras calving season?
This occurs in late January ~ mid March, with thousands of them born daily within that time frame. This happens frequently in southern Serengeti.

14. What is the whether like in East Africa?
Typical temperatures in East Africa are as follows:
Mid March -May and November : Rainy season
June -July- August :
Cold weather with about 20-25 degrees Celsius during day and 17-20 degees during night times.
The coastal region is very humid with temperatures reaching 35 degrees.

15. Do you recommend Travel Insurance?
Yes, we highly recommend travel insurance.

16. Are we supposed to give tips ?
Yes it is common courtesy to tip your driver ,guide and porter when on safari. Drivers are a great source of information and if you tell them in advance what you want to see they will do their best to find it However tipping is not mandatory.

Please see below some tipping guidelines:

Porter/ Waiter: US $ 1 per service

Van driver/ guide: US $ 5-10 + per person ,per driving day
Drivers tips are presented to the driver on the final day of driving.

17. Is The food safe ?
East Africa offers an impressive range of foods and drinks to suit all visitors needs from vegetarian diets to full course meals. Whether in a luxury city hotel or deep in the bush, a traveller is almost guaranteed to find a mouth watering buffet with a wide variety of meats to fresh salads and drinks.

The food is relatively safe to try whilst in a hotel or lodge which caters for international tourists. Soft drinks and alcohol are also readily available, cheap and safe to drink.
