    Touch down in Nairobi, say jambo to your fellow explorers and don’t forget to pinch yourself. Yep, you’re ACTUALLY here. Tonight, it’s time for our welcome group dinner – get ready to show off your weird animal facts. We’ll go first: elephants are the only mammals that can’t jump. This is going to be two wild weeks.

OTHER INFORMATION

PACKING

This isn’t your usual suitcase-pushing holiday abroad – we’ll mostly be travelling in overland trucks and local ferries. Meaning? Luggage space is limited. Bring a soft bag or backpack vs a hard suitcase. And remember, what you pack is what you lug around (so, pack light).  

Other packing essentials include: a sleeping bag, bug spray, quick-dry travel towel, modest clothing (for those church and mosque visits) and neutral colours (African wildlife tend to get suspicious of hot pink). 

VISAS

Visas are not included. Many countries in Africa require you to purchase visas before you travel; please ensure you have checked before you travel and obtained all of the necessary documents.  

VACCINATIONS

Please ensure you have obtained any required vaccinations and medications in advance of travel. Many African countries require you to have a yellow fever certificate on entry.
