Your group trip payment covers the cost of your accommodation, transportation, curated itinerary, experiences and tours, access to parties and events on the trip, and some of your meals each day. You're responsible for the cost of your flights, but we're available to help you with the process.
Our trip accommodations are all four star living in beautiful, boutique spaces (check out a trip to get a feel for where you'll be staying). Rates are for double occupancy but we promise to match you with someone awesome. Need solo space? no problem - you can upgrade for a fee.
Short answer: It depends on which country you're traveling to.
If you're a group trip or concierge traveler - you'll hear from our travel team directly and they'll walk you through everything you need for your specific trip.
If you're planning your own trip - our journal has lots of resources on how, when, and where to take care of your visas, shots, and general trip prep (and our customer support team doesn't mind answering your questions👇🏾 just click contact us at the bottom of the page)
Here's the longer answer: As a general rule West African countries (Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, etc.) require a Yellow Fever shot and a Malaria regimen is suggested. East African countries (Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia usually also require Yellow Fever but Malaria is not usually endemic. South Africa doesn't require any of these shots from US or EU citizens but if you're coming from another part of the continent, Yellow Fever is usually required. We're working on a feature that puts a note on experiences where these immunizations are required.
Given the state of the world, we've re-worked our group trips to make sure they are safer, smaller, and done in a way that keeps travelers and the communities we travel to healthy. You can see and join the waitlist for trips departing later in 2021 on our travel page.
For all of our current and future travelers, we're also continuing our policy of full refunds and anytime cancellations if your trip or experience is impacted in anyway by the pandemic.
