A number of our safaris to Africa start in Nairobi and it is recommended that all travellers starting their safari in Nairobi get their Kenyan visa issued prior to departure to avoid long queues at the airport.
We also recommend to get your Mozambique in advance as you can no longer obtain one at the border.
You can refer to the chart below to find out visa requirements for other African countries that you may be passing through on your tour.
If a holder of a British, EEC, Australian, New Zealand or Canadian passport, many visas can be procured en route at the border.
Although we update the visa section on our website as changes to requirements come to light, requirements can change suddenly so do check individual status with your appointed travel agent, direct with the embassy or high commission or with a reputable visa handling company. African countries are in a continual state of political flux and requirements can change overnight. Visa procurement remains the responsibility of the traveller and not that of on the go.
