- This trip requires a fair amount of walking, some over uneven surfaces, some inclines, and long airline flights to and from Africa. Individuals with walkers or wheelchairs will find this trip difficult and likely will not be able to do all activities as most African areas involved in this trip are not handicap accessible.
- Additional expenses will be: personal spending money; some lunches and dinners; tips for our professional tour director, bus drivers, and safari & city guide staff. A few optional excursions (i.e. balloon ride) with additional costs may be offered.

It's always helpful to get your passport early to make sure there aren't any problems. You don't want to run into a problem at the last minute that could keep you from the experience of a lifetime.
