JWhen is the best time to travel?
Africa is truly a year-
How do Itineraries differ from each other?
Our itineraries vary in length, distance covered, and focus. Some (such as in East Africa and Botswana) are more wildlife-
Do I need visas?
Visas are required for entry into Kenya and Tanzania. Visas for entry into Zimbabwe and Zambia can be obtained upon arrival. For U.S. passport holders, visas are not required for travel to South Africa, Botswana, and shorter stays in Zanzibar. Information on how to obtain your visas as well as a “visa kit” will be sent to you in plenty of time to obtain your visas before your departure. We will work with travelers who are not U.S. or Canadian citizens to obtain visa information specific to your citizenship.
What immunizations are required?
In many cases, you won’t need any immunizations at all! For example, no immunizations are required to enter Kenya if arriving from the United States, Canada or Europe. We will address topics such as immunizations and general health considerations prior to your safari, however, please consult your local immunization clinic before you travel. It is always wise to carefully assess your health requirements before travelling abroad.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommend a malaria prophylactic (just to be on the safe side—contracting malaria is highly unlikely). You may also wish to review the CDC guidelines on their website.
We recommend contacting your physician well in advance of your departure to discuss these suggestions.
What sort of food can I expect?
Lets Say : Exquisite. From the moment you arrive, your meals are included and each is a delight. Our lodges offer continental cuisine, in addition to local specialties to appeal to a wide range of palates. Nairobi boasts a variety of mouth-
At your request we can go an extra mile of providing something fully African .
What is the minimum age for children?
Our family safaris are made for children, and other safaris can usually be tailored to accommodate any age. Depending on which country you wish to visit, situations can vary—so please call us to discuss which safari is right for you.
How is the weather?
East and Southern Africa enjoy glorious climates and both can accurately be called year-
In Kenya and Tanzania, a nice 70 degrees Fahrenheit greets the day and rarely does the temperature vary throughout the year. The elevated altitudes keep temperatures comfortable, even calling for sweaters and jackets every evening and morning. Temperature variance is determined more by region than by season: upcountry areas such as Mount Kenya and the Aberdares at 7,000 feet can be cool, while the drier bush country is warmer and the sea level regions of Mombasa and Zanzibar quite tropical.
Generally, you should count on early mornings and evenings on safari to be chillier than expected throughout Africa—especially if traveling during May, June, July and August when you’ll be quite happy to have packed a heavy fleece or lined jacket.
How long have you been in business?
JEKTOURS AND SAFARIS is a new travel outfit but with directorship that boasts experience that spans over 25 years spiced with personal driver guides who bring in fresh ideas and pump life into the safaris in our packages.
What type of clothing should I wear?
Upon booking your safari, you’ll receive documents that include a complete packing list. Suffice it to say, though, that your clothing should be comfortable and casual. Khaki, olive, brown and tan clothing increases your chances of seeing wildlife and offers the added benefit of concealing dirt. And since laundry service will be available in many of the places we visit, you should avoid the temptation to over-
Will someone meet me at the airport?
Absolutely. As our valued guests, it is our pleasure to welcome you to our homeland with a big smile. After passing through customs at your arrival airport, you will be greeted by a Places In Africa Safaris staff member who will drive you as swiftly as possible to the comfort of your hotel.
When is the Great Migration?
The timing of the Great Migration can vary because it is heavily dependent upon the weather—specifically rain that bring the new grasses upon which wildebeest graze. If you want to witness this natural marvel, it’s best to talk to a Places In Africa Safaris specialist regarding the best time to plan your trip. In general, though:
The herds can be found amidst the short grasses of Serengeti National Park from November to May. From January onward, wildebeest, zebra and Thompson’s gazelle alternate between the woodlands and plains depending on the weather.
In May, as the grasses become dry, the herds begin the roughly 500-

Your Places in JEKTours and Safaris can help you maximize your opportunity to see this remarkable natural phenomenon.
What is included in the safari cost?
Just about everything. The JEKTours and Safaris includes transfers, all meals, complimentary bottled water. In general the expenses you will need to anticipate are passport and visa costs, immunizations, a few gratuities and personal expenses such as phone calls, souvenirs and laundry.
We are pleased to include all standard gratuities during your safari, including the tipping of the wait staff for meals in lodges and restaurants where meals are included, and the luggage porters at all airports, hotels and lodges. Gratuities to your Safari Director, Tour Leader and Driver Guides are not included, and are customary for good service. More information is provided in your pre-
Is there internet access at the lodges and camps?
It is rare to find a lodge or camp in the bush that offers a computer for guest use (or perhaps any computer at all). Computers with internet are available in most hotels in Nairobi and internet cafes are available in various cities. In any event, travellers should not count on keeping touch with home via email.
Can I use my cell phone while on safari?
If you have one of the newer phones (tri or quad band) it may work in parts of Africa, depending upon your service provider. U.S. cell phones using AT&T and T-
