Travel Information

Travel Documents

Travel documents and tickets, final itinerary details, supplier addresses and phone contacts will be sent upon receipt of final payment.


Visas and Inoculations

Visas are required by many of the countries to which Great Safaris operates programs. Up-to-date requirements can be obtained from consular offices. It is the travellers responsibility to ensure that passports and all required visas are up-to-date and in accordance with international travel requirements.

If you are not travelling on an American or Canadian passport, it is imperative that you also check visa requirements for all of the destinations you will be travelling to or transiting through.

Required inoculations and recommended precautionary measure can be obtained from your personal physician or local health departments.

Baggage Limitation

On light aircraft within Africa, there can be severe luggage restrictions of between 33 and 44 lbs per person (including carry-on items). All travellers must pack in soft sided luggage (i.e. duffel bag). Please ask your travel consultant about weight restrictions that may apply to your itinerary.

Wireless Traveler, International Cell Phone

We highly recommend a travel phone or global SIM card. You can see all the great features (& a special offer!) listed in the flyer below. Not all US cell phones will work overseas, and those that do can incur high roaming charges as you will see in the comparative rates table. Wireless Traveler can offer significant savings in over 200 countries with no contracts and no monthly fees. If you have any questions, just contact Brenda Benson at 1-866-700-3883 or
