From the 1st of October 2014 all foreigners and South Africans travelling with children under 18 to or from South Africa as well as travellers in transit will be requested to provide an unabridged birth certificate (including the details of the child's father as well as the mother) of all travelling children. This applies even when both parents are travelling with their children. When children are travelling with guardians, these adults are required to produce affidavits from parents proving permission for the children to travel. For more information contact us.
You'll need a tourist visa, which most nationals can purchase on arrival. Please confirm with us if you need to apply for visa in advance or refer to the Zambia Immigration website
. Do check your stamp at immigration to make sure that you've been given enough days on your visa. Both international and domestic airport taxes should be included in your ticket price. For charter flights we will confirm this at time of booking. Airport Taxes
Both international and domestic airport taxes should be included in your ticket price. Note - for charter flights and seat rate charters these are NOT included. Money
Travelers’ cheques and cash are accepted. Credit cards are becoming more widely accepted but not in remote areas and should not be relied on except in major towns. RPS accept visa for payments made in the camp.US dollars are easier to change than sterling. Please ask the exchange or bank to supply you with only new US dollar bills - i.e. ones with large heads as any with small heads are not accepted in Zambia. Insurance
Make sure that you have comprehensive medical and travel insurance before you arrive. Medical
You must have malaria protection and we recommend tetanus and the hepatitis vaccinations. It is advisable to know your blood group type in case of emergency. All passengers travelling between South Africa and Zambia will be required to have a yellow fever vaccination certificate. As recommended vaccinations change from time to time, we suggest that you visit your regular GP or travel clinic for up to date information as soon as you book your safari. Photography
Please be sensitive when photographing local people and their villages. Ask the guide or the villagers first. Be careful when photographing public buildings and persons in uniform - just ask first.
