Travel Insurance with Allianz Partners

Comprehensive Travel Insurance is compulsory for everyone booking safaris through African Safaris Ltd. Before travelling; guests must provide information about their travel insurance company, the contact details and policy numbers.

Comprehensive Travel Insurance covers you for:

β€’ trip cancellation and interruption
β€’ travel delays
β€’ Loss, theft or damage to baggage
β€’ baggage delays
β€’ medical expenses
β€’ Emergency medical transportation

When to get travel insurance

We highly recommend you purchase your travel insurance at or around the same time as you book your safari. That way you receive the maximum benefit from it as you are covered for unexpected cancellation from when you booked your safari, including your deposit.
