Before embarking on any overseas holiday it is important to be properly informed on amongst others visas, vaccinations, insurance, money and clothing. At BAOBAB Travel we try to make your life as easy as possible by providing you with as much pre-departure information as possible in amongst others our Travel Planning section. We endeavour to have the travel information on all our African destinations as up-to-date as possible, but please be aware that regulations and health recommendations change frequently, hence you must always check with your local embassy and medical specialists for the most current information before travelling.
Well in advance of travelling, you must always make sure that you have a valid passport with sufficient blank pages for any necessary visas or tourist permits.
Always take out a comprehensive travel insurance before you depart on your holiday and preferably at time of booking, so that you have the necessary cancellation cover in place - just in case. For any information and assistance with travel insurance, please check out the Travel Insurance we at BAOBAB offer through Endsleigh Insurances.
