NEEDED TRAVEL GUIDES

Be conversant about the documentations needed: passport, visa, travel insurance, return tickets, vaccinations, and allowable money to carry.

International laws safeguard the killing and use of endangered species for purposes of trade, sport or fashion. Do not purchase products that are made from ivory, snake skins, leopards, and coral.
Beware of prohibitions to taking pictures or videos around sensitive national installations and some private areas. In most areas photography is allowed free of charge. Travelers should seek permission from our tour guides before taking their photographs and appreciate their right to refuse such requests.
