Essentials while traveling in Africa? We’ve got you covered:

* Seasonality varies sizably by country. Bring layers and a light down puffer coat.

* Ensure your immunizations are current (including Yellow Fever where necessary).

* Laundry service is provided complimentary at most camps, so pack light.

* Weight restrictions and soft-sided luggage are strictly enforced when traveling via bush plane. Talk to your JETSET travel designer for specifics.

Local Hero

Luke Bailes, Singita

The founder and Executive Chairman of Singita, Luke Bailes has developed a prescient 100-year conservation plan for large tracts of land throughout Africa. The Shangaan word for “place of miracles,” Singita consists of 13 lodges and camps—including a new opening soon in Rwanda—across South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Tanzania.

[ TRIED AND TRUE ]

“I had long dreamt of a ‘bush and beach’ combination in celebration of my 50th, and engaged JETSET to design and manage this trip of a lifetime. For 36 days we traveled throughout Zambia, Botswana, South Africa, Tanzania, Kenya, and the Seychelles. Our grand finale was in London. The level of destination expertise as well as high touch service demonstrated throughout was unparalleled. Our confidence in JETSET has since led us to comfortably travel to exotic locales around the world. We know every detail has been considered and addressed.”
