Travelling Times and Distances
All travelling times in Zimbabwe are affected by road conditions, border crossings, detours and weather conditions, therefore on certain days travelling times may be longer than anticipated especially where there is a lot of distance to be covered. Please keep in mind that the time it takes to travel 100 km in your home country is not equivalent to the time it takes to travel 100 km on African roads, therefore we encourage you to sit back and enjoy the spectacular scenery Africa offers. Where possible additional stops will be made to ensure your travelling comfort at all times.
Meals included in your safari will be taken in the restaurants at various accommodation establishments. Please advise us of any special dietary requirements in advance.
The onus is on the client to organize all visas required for Zimbabwe prior to departure.
Travel and cancellation insurance is mandatory for every guest travelling with JENMAN African Safaris. All insurance is solely the responsibility of our guests.
