Final Thoughts…

Have a business card with you.

While travelling across the world, it may come a point in time where you may come across potential business partners. Having a business card with you can serve as a great way to maintain ties between you and the people that you may meet in your destination country. I must say, Kenya has people that will amaze you!

Have a Yellow Fever Vaccination Certificate.

It is important to have a yellow fever certificate with you. Some countries may or may not require it during your arrival at the airport. It is good to check with your travel agent in good time.

Keep Smiling.

Keep smiling! Did you know that the experience you get from a Kenyan safari leaves you excited and wishing for more? Nevertheless, keep the spirit up all through the period of your safari. If you need anything whilst on your safari, it is your right to speak up… you paid for it! The least you could get from your safari is a smile. 😊
