Health Information


Health requirements for travelling to Africa vary based on the areas you will be visiting. We send all our travellers detailed information and suggestions on the immunizations they might need, as well as other helpful information. As always, though, you should consult your physician well in advance of your departure to discuss your trip. In the meantime, you can review the CDC guidelines at www.cdc.gov This link opens in a new window.

Flying Doctor Services
When you travel with Micato in East Africa, you are assured of the services of the Flying Doctors, a group of well qualified physicians who travel by aircraft throughout the East African bush providing treatment and emergency transportation. Similar evacuation services are also available to travellers in South Africa and select lodges in Botswana, assuring Micato guests in remote destinations of prompt medical attention and air transportation to the nearest medical facility in the unlikely event of an emergency. Please note that comprehensive Emergency Evacuation Insurance is also available through our travel insurance provider—a policy we highly recommend to all.
