Group tipping arrangements can be discussed with your consultant. Health Precautions: Emergency medical insurance is advised prior to your East Africa visit. Malaria is prevalent; take prophylactics before and after your trip. Avoid tap water; bottled water is safe. Consider travel insurance covering accidents, illness, or hospitalization.
