Important Information
  • Visas – All visas for this trip can be issued upon arrival. Students will need $100 cash for the Tanzania visa and $50 for the Zambia/Zimbabwe combination visa. Your Personal Travel Advisor can provide more information abouts after you enroll.
  • Vaccinations – A Yellow Fever Vaccination is recommended in case of changes in policy while students are away, however it is not currently required for entry. Please bring extra passport photos just in case. For more detailed information, please refer to your G3 Ultimate African Adventure visa page.
  • Weather – Weather will vary greatly on this three-week adventure. Remember that it is winter south of the equator and temperatures can dip into the 30s (Fahrenheit). Because we’ll be moving a lot, it’s key to pack light and pack layers to be prepared for all weather scenarios.
  • Appropriate dress – Tank tops and shorts are permitted on safari and on the beaches in Zanzibar, as well as during some adventure activities, but capris/long pants are will be required for many of the areas we visit. In general, we expect our students to respect cultural norms and to dress accordingly
  • Safari colors – Earth tones are strongly recommended while on safari (khaki, brown, dark green, etc.), as Tsetse flies are attracted to bright colors especially blue.
  • Laundry – You will have opportunities to do laundry during the program, and so you should pack as lightly as you can
