Safety in Africa

What should I know before going to Africa?

Jackson’s African Safaris consider safety as our our principal concern for all guests. All activities are planned carefully ensuring your safety is considered as a first priority. However, wild animals can be unpredictable and therefore any activity associated with them carries an element of risk. Just like driving a car, flying in an areoplane and riding your bike. 

Walking in the African bush, driving in wildlife areas and canoeing on rivers is a specialist exercise and guides are trained and licensed specifically for these activities. Firearms are carried as a precaution when walking in some countries, but not all, these details are clearly presented to you during our consultation with you and your decision making period. We remind visitors that the essence of every activity, on all safaris, in all places, is to provide a thrilling experience and never fear or discomfort.
