Common Injuries whilst on a Safari
While Safaris are enjoyed by hundreds of people every year, and are a safe and fun activity for the family to enjoy as well, there are obviously inherent risks.
- Injuries or fatalities occurring as a result of contact with dangerous or poisonous animals are very rare, although they do occur.
- Remember that the animals you come across are wild and dangerous, and thus are unpredictable.
- There have been cases of Elephants and other animals charging and causing injuries and fatalities as a result. However, these are rare and extremely unlikely to occur.
- When on Safari, always listen to the instructions given by the Guide and follow them closely.
- Keep your limbs inside the vehicle you are in, if you are in a car or jeep.
- Do not do anything to deliberately antagonise the animals.
- If for some reason you do find yourself at risk from the situation, listen to the Guide and follow instructions, try not to panic.
- Wear closed shoes when going on a walking tour safari.
- If you are camping or lodging in an area that may still have wild animals in the vicinity, always carry on you a torch if leaving your lodgings.
- Also, if you are alone in the dark then always whistle. This will alert any animals in the area that you are near and will not allow you to surprise and scare them.
- You may also want to invest in a mosquito net.
You must ensure that you do not participate in a Safari for more than 90 days in any one Period of Insurance.
