Essential Travel Insurance for Your Ugandan Safari Adventure

Why You Need Travel Insurance for Your Safari in Uganda

Traveling to Uganda for a safari is an exciting adventure. However, it’s crucial to plan for the unexpected. We highly recommend purchasing travel insurance before booking your safari, as this will ensure that you can fully immerse yourself in the experience, with complete peace of mind. While most safaris run smoothly, unforeseen circumstances can arise. Protect your investment and cherish the memories of your adventure with the right travel insurance coverage.

What Does Travel Insurance Cover?

  1. Cancellation and Delays: If an unforeseen event like an illness, family emergency, or work-related issue forces you to cancel your trip, the right policy can help you recoup your costs.
  2. Medical Treatment and Repatriation: Ensure your policy covers emergency medical treatment and repatriation, especially when engaging in adventurous activities like gorilla trekking, white-water rafting, or hiking.
  3. Loss or Theft of Valuables: Your policy should also cover loss of valuables and offer personal liability, legal expenses, and coverage for cancellations during your trip.
  4. Pre-Existing Illnesses: Consult an insurance broker to ensure your policy accounts for any pre-existing conditions you may have.
