  • What if I (or my child) have a food allergy
    We try to accommodate all food requirements, so make sure you advise us at the time of booking. Although we try to have alternative options available, it may be difficult in some restaurants to determine if foods are 100% allergen-free. We advise that you take the same precautions as you would when eating out at a restaurant in your home country, and maybe pack snacks that you know are safe as a precaution.
  • What standard can I expect the accomodation to be?
    We use a variety of accommodation on our trips, which are chosen for their location, atmosphere and are often times African-owned. All accommodation we choose are clean and we try as much as possible to support locally-owned hotels/guesthouses, that reflect the character of the area.
