Passports and Visas
When preparing for your safari, it's important to start with the basics. And all the safari planning starts with making sure you have a valid passport and have any necessary visas for your trip.
All travellers must have current passports valid for 6 months after the expected departure date from Africa. Visas are required for Kenya and Tanzania. A visa kit will be sent to all guests along with their other documents. A visa is also required for Zambia—it is obtained at point of entry and no photos are required. The visa fee must be paid in US dollars, and the amount is dependent upon when you are travelling.
No visas are required for South Africa or Botswana for American or Canadian citizens.
Visit The US State Department to find information on obtaining a US passport. For information on obtaining a Kenyan visa, log on to the Kenya Ministry of Tourism. For information on obtaining a visa for Tanzania, visit the Tanzania Tourist Board's website.
