Safaris used to be nothing more than Hunting Excursions. Still, nowadays, the name has generally come to refer to overland trips to spot and often photograph Big Wildlife, such as Lions, Leopards, Elephants, Rhinos, Giraffes, Buffalo and Hyenas.
A safari is associated with travel in Africa, which usually involves driving through Nature Reserves on unpaved tracks, sometimes combined with Wildlife spotting hikes or Safari Trekking.
When getting Travel Insurance (Safari), you can also select one of the following:
- Safari (Not Tour Operator Organised)

While a Safari is enjoyed by hundreds of people yearly and is a safe and fun activity for the family, there are inherent risks.
- Injuries or fatalities resulting from contact with dangerous or poisonous animals are infrequent, although they do occur.
- Remember that the animals you encounter are wild and dangerous and thus 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 your vehicle if you are in a car or jeep.
- Do not do anything to antagonise the animals deliberately.
- 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, always carry a torch if leaving your accommodations.
- Also, if you are alone in the dark, then always whistle. This will alert any animals in the area you are near and will not allow you to surprise and scare them.
- You may also want to invest in a mosquito net.
Pre-Existing Medical Conditions
If you have been on a Safari before and may have had an injury or accident while participating in a Safari, you must declare this when purchasing a policy.
