Travel Information

Just a few tips on travelling…


Shi-awela Safaris is not a malaria area, and malaria risk is typically considered low during the winter months. For any guest travelling to the Victoria Falls, Mozambique, or the Kruger National Park, anti-malaria precaution is highly recommended.

Clearing Customs

Foreign guests are easily targeted at the airport by greedy airport porters. They may try to take charge of your luggage, looking for an unrealistic gratuity. Please be warned that they quickly identify tired and weary travellers. Do not tip any customs or immigration officials.

Travel With Children

Full unabridged birth certificates are required for travel to South Africa with children. This needs to have full parental details included on the birth certificate.
