Travel Insurance with Safari cover

Finding reasonably priced, reliable travel insurance can be a tricky business when you are planning a safari holiday. Sometimes the hefty premiums charged can often make it look like insurers think you'll be having a go at lion-taming!

At Holiday Extras we can provide cover for your safari holiday (professionally organised and without guns) at no extra cost to you, provided that you book your African safari trip while in the UK. Whether you're experiencing the wonders of the African wilderness on foot or taking in the scene from atop a jeep, Holiday Extras travel insurance can offer you fantastic cover.

Holiday Extras Travel Insurance

Our safari cover includes:

  • Medical Emergency expenses including repatriation - up to £15 million
  • Personal accident - up to £20,000
  • Cancellation cover - up to £5,000

Self drive safari travel insurance

Please note that your safari holiday will need to have been organised by a recognised tour operator for cover to be valid. Any safari holidays independently organised, will not be covered.

Safari safety

Here's how you can stay safe while still having an amazing time:

  • Listen to the advice of your guide and follow the game rangers' rules
  • Don't be reckless and deliberately expose yourself to danger
  • Never offer food to wild animals

While having a good time is important, failing to exercise caution and common sense could invalidate your cover should you need to make a claim. Following the advice of tour guides and using good judgement will serve you well and ensure you have a safe and satisfying trip.
