I would like to travel with another person, but didn't know if you've gotten these requests or not. If so, I'd be happy to travel with someone else to keep from paying the additional 995 solo price. If you get this question, please let me know. I would be interested. thanks, Pam

Q:

What are examples of "major airlines" ? What are cost to upgrade to 1st class ? are facilities equiped with "King beds" ? Tx, BMAC

B M.  asked on  Mar 5, 2013

A:

BMAC Thanks for your inquiry. Examples of major airlines would be British Air, KLM, Virgin, South African, Delta. Upgrade to 1st class is certainly possible but surcharge will depend on the carrier. There are options for 1 bed which is usually a Queen. I can request a King. More likely Kings will be available at the hotel in Victoria Falls than in the Game Preserve as more rooms. Please feel free to call or e-mail wih any further questions at (800) 487-1136 Best Regards JB

how many pills and shots do you need to go to africa??

monique w.  asked on  Mar 12, 2013

A:

Monique Thanks for your inquiry In fact, no shots or pills are needed to travel to this part of Africa, though malaria prophylaxis treatment is suggested in Botswana for the tour to Chobe National Park.

Q:

"game Reserve" does that mean hunting?

Barbie W.  asked on  Mar 15, 2013

A:

Barbie Thanks for your inquiry. In fact "Game Preserve" means exactly the opposite as no hunting is permitted on the Game Preserve as it is a sanctuary to raise animals that are used to help re-stock National Parks around Africa. Hope that answers your question. Best Regards JB

Q:

In the description, it says 9 nights however the hotels only equaled 6 nights total. Are we responsible for finding our own lodging 3 of the nights? Also, once the groupon is purchased how do we go forward with planning our dates & airfare?

Jessica A.  asked on  Mar 15, 2013

A:

Jessica Actually it is potentially 2 nights (usually just 1 but we had to account for the possibility of 2) in the air going down, and 1 night in the air coming back. Most customers are extending to Cape Town for 3 nights so that would make for a total of 9 nights lodging and 2-3 nights in the air. I apologize for the confusion but we do need to show the potential time gone on the tour for customers coming from all parts of North America. Best Regards JB

Q:

My boyfriend uses a wheelchair, are the hotels accessible with ground floor rooms or elevators & ramps?

Jessica A.  asked on  Mar 15, 2013

A:

Jessica Thanks for your inquiry I've just checked with all the suppliers and the answers have been positive about wheelchair accessible rooms and being able to do the tours in both locations in South Africa and Zimbabwe and on the safari in Botswana. The only place where they said they would not be able to accommodate would be on the African village tour as the streets would be too uneven to maneuver around in a wheelchair. The owner of the Savannah Game Resort in South Africa also said the staff would need to help your boyfriend up into the game drive open top truck, but that staff would certainly be there to help him in and out of the truck and they would make a point of doing that if you were to come. Hope that helps and hope you can make it down to Southern Africa with us! Feel free to call at (800) 487-1136 with any questions JB
