Nearly all safari lodges will also carry a comprehensive medical aid kit. In the unlikely event of serious accidents while on safari you’re likely to be treated by AMREF (The Flying Doctors Service), East Africa’s largest air ambulance service which has planes fuelled & ready to go 24 hours a day. Each plane is equipped with trauma nurses & life support systems, so treatment can begin as soon as they reach the casualty. Members are evacuated for free & with no need to consult an insurance agent. And if you don’t need their services during your trip to East Africa, your money helps to maintain a vital medical service to millions of local people.
Most of your travel service providers will subscribe to AMREF and the chances are your own travel insurance taken our in your resident country will be linked with AMREF to cover any treatment made – please ensure you are covered in this way.
