Travel Insurance for Safaris
A safari is one of the most rewarding holiday activities you can experience especially if you spot the rare wild dog or sought-after leopard. It does, however, come with its share of dangers which is why it's wise to take out comprehensive travel insurance that covers safaris. Grade 1 sports cover insures you for safaris that are organised in the UK and Ireland at no extra cost; for safaris that are non-uk organised, add extra Grade 2 cover.
Essential Travel offers you full protection on your safari when you:
- Follow the correct procedure and instructions from your guide
- Use all the appropriate safety equipment and clothing
- Avoid any reckless, irresponsible behavaour

Cheap. But not nasty!
I required travel insurance for my 13 year old daughters who are travelling unaccompanied to the USA later this year. Essential was one of the few companies I found that caters for that market and at a surprising low price. The cover is more than adequate although it has to be said that figures for the excess waivers were not so readily traceable. But got that I'd award it five stars. If we have to make a claim this review and the raring could go down as well as up.
