A common concern of our clients is about safety when traveling to unfamiliar places with foreign customs. Top those worries with news of possible political unrest, it can justifiably be very intimidating. As travelers ourselves, we can tell you that we are completely understanding of any fears or apprehensions you may have.
But, we can also say with confidence, that your safety is our utmost priority and we take it with great seriousness. One of the main reasons why we are able to run our business almost exclusively by word of mouth is the care and effort we put into planning each trip. From the person who meets you in the lobby of the airport to the camp’s guides, we pride ourselves in the relationships that we have created in order to trust that you will be in the best hands every step of the way.
In the case of political drama, as per usual, most of the country continues on just as normal. Similar to how foreign countries may look upon our own country’s current affairs, it may see uncontained and violent, but any areas of conflict are minimal and easily avoidable.
We do our best with planning ahead and staying aware of any problems, but should the unlikely case of any serious complications occur, our people on the ground (greeters, drivers, camp and hotel staff, guides, ect.) are excellent and are capable of contacting us and the appropriate authorities at any time. In fact, unbeknownst to our clients, we are checking in with the different handlers as our clients move throughout their trip to make sure their vacation is going well and no changes need to be made.
We hope this helps with any worries that might be popping up as you get closer to your safari or as you make your decision to venture with us. We know that we can give you the best vacation with memories that last a lifetime so please do not hesitate to reach out with any question. We have insider’s knowledge of countries spanning from Africa to South America and would love to be the ones to plan your special trip! Call or e-mail us today with inquiries!
