Trip Notes

Visas
There is no visa requirement for American, Australian, British and Canadian travellers to South Africa and Botswana for less than 90 days.
However, all travellers will require a visa for Zimbabwe and Zambia which can be obtained upon entry. There may be an opportunity to purchase a UNI/KAZA VISA on arrival which will give you multiple entry access to Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana for the price of $50 USD. Visit to read more. This is the preferred choice, however there is a chance they will not be available on arrival, in which case you will need to purchase a multi-entry visa for Zimbabwe on arrival ($30-$45 USD), then a multi-entry visa when crossing to Zambia. Cash is required for all options, as credit card machines often lose signal.

Culture Shock
When travelling to Southern Africa, you’ll see both good and bad. but Locals tend to be very friendly and welcoming. However, poverty is widespread. Most people speak English, and the food at restaurants and hotels is generally safe to eat. That said, tourists can be easy targets for petty crime, so be extremely cautious with personal belongings in public, and avoid wearing expensive jewelry.

Local LGBT Scene
While South Africa is quite progressive, the rest of Africa still generally condemns homosexuality. Homosexual sex is actually illegal in Zambia and Zimbabwe, so we recommend that you avoid public displays of affection in these countries, for the safety and security of not only yourself, but also your fellow travellers. On a bright note, Botswana just decriminalized same-sex relationships on June 11, 2019.

 

Gay Victoria Falls

 

Electricity
You will need an international travel plug/adapter for type C/D/M/N sockets.

Connectivity
All of our hotels will have Wi-Fi access, so feel free to tweet, pin, post and share your experience with your friends and family at home. They might be a tad jealous!

Required Vaccinations
Based on entry requirements, there are no vaccinations needed for entry unless your home country, or a country you are travelling to before or after this tour, has restrictions in place. To determine if you should take preventative measures to reduce the risk of illness, consult with your doctor or a travel medical clinic. We cannot provide vaccination recommendations.

Malaria
Some of the areas we’ll travel to on this trip have a moderate risk for Malaria. You should consult your physician at least two weeks prior to travel in order to consider the options available to you for prevention.

Yellow Fever
To prevent introduction of this disease into the country, South Africa requires a valid Yellow Fever Vaccination Certificate from all citizens and non-citizens over one year of age travelling from an infected area, or who have been in transit through infected areas.

Prescription Drugs
The Zambian Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) has recently detained a number of tourists for possession of seemingly innocuous over-the-counter medications like Benadryl, which contain small quantities of diphenhydramine, an active ingredient that is on Zambia’s list of controlled substances. A full list of prohibited medications will be provided in your pre-trip packet.

Weather
We will be travelling to the area during Spring, which is near the end of dry season. In Cape Town, you’ll likely experience a mix of sun and cloud, with a chance of rain. Daytime temperatures hover around 20C/50F, while evenings can drop to 11C/52F. During the rest of your trip in Sabi Sands/Kruger Park and Victoria Falls, it should be fairly dry with sunny skies – although there is a chance of short rain storms. Daytime highs will be around 27C/80F, with evening temperatures around 15C/60F.

Travel Insurance
For everybody’s peace of mind, medical travel insurance is required on all Out Adventures tours. At a minimum, your travel insurance must provide cover against personal accident, death, medical expenses, emergency repatriation and personal liability, with a minimum medical coverage of US $200,000.

Meals
To keep things flexible, not all meals are included in the trip price. Although we typically dine together so that everybody can get a taste of everything, feel free to explore on your own…your guide will always have some restaurant recommendations.

Money
The local currency is the South African Rand, however USD is widely accepted for tourism purposes. We recommend carrying local currency or small USD bills for small purchases, although credit cards are accepted at most upscale restaurants and hotels. We also recommend carrying approximately $400 USD to be used in case of an emergency, or if your credit/ATM cards are placed on hold.

Tipping
Gratuities for local guides, included meals and drivers are all included in your tour costs. However, all lodge gratuities are not included. We recommend budgeting approximately $200 USD.

What to bring
Our adventures entail carrying your own luggage on occasion. And while you’ll never schlep far, things can quickly get costlier than a celebrity breakup if you don’t keep your baggage under 20kg/44lb thanks to costly surcharges on domestic flights. You should also bring something smaller for day trips to carry water, your camera, and any souvenirs you find along the way.

Optional Activities
Every Out Adventure offers optional excursions that are not included in price of this trip. Please see the daily itinerary in your final pre-trip packet to learn what’s available.

How We Travel
Out Adventures is all about good times with likeminded guys. Whatever’s on the itinerary – from fireside camping to five-star decadence – our goal is to make the experience magical. We’re also committed to supporting the communities we visit by hiring local guides, staying at locally-owned accommodations when possible, and celebrating local cuisine. It all adds up to a great way to immerse yourself in the culture.

Your Guide
All Out Adventures are led by a gay (or gay-welcoming) guide. Whenever possible, we hire destination locals. And we can also connect you with the right people if you’d like to delve deeper into the local culture. If you’re pleased with your guide, we recommend a tip of US $5-10 per person, per day…they’ll certainly appreciate it!

Flying Solo
If you’ve never travelled on your own, it’s an amazing way to get to know yourself while making new friends along the way. We can arrange for you to share a room with people in your age range at no charge, or you can pay a supplement for your own room. If there’s an odd number of solos, we’ll rotate a single room on a random basis.
