VISA INFORMATION:

You will get off on the plane on the tarmac and from there walk into the only lounge they have for arrivals. From there you need to line up for your VISA. Once you have that you will pick up your bags and exit the lounge to meet transportation. Please WATCH this quick video so you may see the process.

PICK UP INFORMATION:

You will need a visa before you leave the airport. Our guides will be there to pick you all up upon arrival.

The airport process is pretty smooth for Visa’s

1. Get off plane
2 . Walk into lounge (there is only 1 lounge for arrivals to walk into)
3 . Line up
– get finger prints
– photo taken
– pay
– get stamp

4 . Pick up bags

5. Exit the lounge and meet them outside .Even if you are staying somewhere else, they will pick you up. They want to make sure everyone is okay with visas and to make sure there are no flight delays and so forth. We normally do not offer transportation earlier or later than our adventure but this one is a bit special

FAQS

  • Multiple Entry Visa can be a bit difficult to get online prior to arrival. We suggest getting it in Africa. Please have $100 in USD available for this.
  • Once you retrieve your luggage and visa you will proceed outside. Look for your name and MORE Adventures (ie- Tiffani Johansen- My1FitLife Adventure)
  • Bring USD with you, our dollar goes further than theirs. There will be opportunities to change currency throughout. $400-$600. You can use card as well.
  • Once we leave on safari you will only have access to a day pack and duffel bag or other collapsable bag. Hard suitcases will be stored in locked guide offices and will be retrieved after our adventure.

  • If you need to wash clothes, access to laundry will be at lodges
  • Do not bring black clothing, this attracts flies. Nude, beige, camo, light colors are preferred.
