Tanzania is a safari destination par excellence- unmatched in its diversity and offering new vistas of experience that are replete with moments spent in the heart of the wilderness. And in the wild, you never know what dangers are lurking to mar your shot at a lifetime experience. So why not insure against those unseen risks? It’s only prudent and sets you mentally free
Whatever insurance cover you choose make sure its comprehensive in its scope. You shell out big money for that safari experience. Don’t cheap out when buying policy cover. Here are a few points that you need to keep in mind when buying your policy
Emergency medical evacuation coverage– While in the jungles or in the throes of summiting Mt. Kilimanjaro, if things go wrong and you require immediate evacuation or airlifting, then this little option will save your day. It’s expensive but not more than your life
Protection against baggage loss, theft or damage– You may lose your baggage in transit or have your expensive camera broken by a mischievous monkey. Or just have it snatched by a miscreant. Makes sense to cover it
Medical coverage for injury or illness while traveling– Tanzania is rife with tropical diseases. Malaria and other vector-borne diseases are a reality. There are even altitude sickness, traveler’s diarrhea and other health hassles to watch out for. Stay covered.
Trip cancellation or interruption protection– It should also cover for non-refundable financial penalties like cancellations such as hotel bookings, flight, and other transportation bookings if you have a sudden illness, death in the family, or some other emergency
If you are in Tanzania then you certainly can’t help trying out the outdoor activities game drives, snorkeling, scuba diving, hot air balloon, trekking etc. Try to cover for them too.
Be cautious and read the fine print before selecting the insurance policy
