Travelling can be a very scary yet amazing experience, especially if you are covering some beautiful areas in Africa, however with any type of travel you must consider your own safety and health by planning and preparing before your journey.
With most travel experiences, it is not uncommon for you to encounter some type of stomach upset, with new foods you may find yourself unwell. Prepare before you leave and take a supply of medications just in case you should you require them.
Money is one of the most important aspects of travelling, taking enough currency with you to pay for accommodation and transport. You must contact your bank and inform them of your travel plans to avoid your bank blocking your card.
It is important that you are respectful to the country you enter, and abide by their rules. Consider the local religion and take into account the actions you take.
