Ways to Book
Perhaps you've found the perfect holiday trip already, or maybe your imagination knows exactly how you want it to pan out, but you need a little help with the logistics. Either way, we're here waiting for your call. Or your email. Or why not come in and chat face-to-face?
Not everybody enjoys chatting on the phone. In fact, some of us positively detest it - that awkward moment where you both speak at the same time. The lack of eye contact.
The inability to rely on your charismatic mannerisms and traffic-stopping good looks.
Well, no more shall you be put through the agonising punishment of having to speak to a real human being. No more leaving awkward voicemails, waiting for them to call back, wondering if you left a contact number, and finally calling back and leaving another voicemail with your details. Again.
No, instead, you can utilise the effortless exchange of the online booking engine. That's right Gen-Y: you can now travel to Africa with nothing more than the click of a mouse. So once you've made up your mind about where you want to be, hit the big 'book now' button and enjoy absolutely no awkward silences.
Travel Insurance is compulsory on all Africa Journeys trips and is a condition of booking with Africa Journeys. When selecting a travel insurance policy we require that at a minimum you are covered for medical expenses including emergency repatriation. We strongly recommend that the policy also covers personal liability, cancellation, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects.
This will not only guarantee you peace of mind while you travel with Africa Journeys but also covers you for many of the things that can go wrong while overseas.
Your insurance policy will need to be sighted by your leader on day one of your trip. Please ensure you have your policy number and emergency telephone number for your insurance company. If this is unavailable please ensure you have the necessary information required by your Insurance company in case of an emergency.
We also recommend you take out cancellation insurance. This may cover cancellation penalties in certain circumstances if you have to cancel your trip unexpectedly due to illness, injury or unforseen circumstances. Unfortunately cancellation insurance normally will not cover you if you change your mind.
Accommodation & Transfers
Africa Journeys want to make sure your trip starts, and ends, on the right foot. Whether you're the type of person loves to be early, or the last person on the dance floor at a party - our accommodation services allow you to squeeze every last drop of excitement out of your adventure.When booking your trip, just let us know if you are planning on extending your trip, and Africa Journeys or our overseas agents can handle all your pre and post trip accommodation requirements for you.
Once your accommodation is all sorted, it's time to think about getting from A to B. As much as we love airports, arriving in a new one isn't always the most pleasant way start to a holiday. Unless you love swarms of taxi drivers vying for your attention and confusing transport maps - there's nothing better than spotting a friendly face among the crowd and being whisked away from the chaos. That's why, in all our destinations, we offer arrival and departure transfers as an optional extra - so you can spend less time haggling for a cab fare and more time exploring.
Oh, and if you're a single traveler - we've got you covered too. A single supplement is available on most of our trips for an extra charge. Just ask our reservation staff or travel agent at the time of booking.
So you've touched down, made it to the hotel and slipped on some comfy walking shoes. What next? Sure, you could hit the minibar, relax in the lobby or wander around aimlessly for a few hours. Or you could kick-start your adventure by joining an Africa Journeys excursion.
From street art to street food, in just a few hours you'll be well and truly under the skin of the city you're visiting. Got a few days spare before or after your trip? No problems, most Africa Journeys excursions depart daily, and departures are guaranteed.
Or if you find yourself with some spare time during your trip, your leader can recommend and arrange a range of optional activities for you.
