  • For all
    our safaris, it is COMPULSORY to take out travel insurance covering for:
    cancellation and curtailment, medical situations, baggage, emergency
  • Okavango
    exploration  Safaris does not provide
    travel insurance.
  • Okavango
    exploration  Safaris can assist you to
    sign up for the Okavango Air Rescue membership. The service provides medical
    evacuation from isolated areas of the bush by a medically equipped helicopter
    and emergency doctor, ensuring smooth and swift operations. International
    insurance companies are not always familiar with the practicalities of dealing
    with emergencies in the Botswana bush, which can add to delays in obtaining
    medical care. Although the OAR membership is not compulsory and does not
    replace an international medical insurance and evacuation (which remains
    compulsory with or without OAR membership), we highly recommend to sign up for
    the OAR membership which is only BWP175 / USD 17 / EUR 15.
  • Please
    note that you will be required to provide your insurance details prior to your
    arrival so we can liaise with your insurance company in the shortest amount of
    time in case of an emergency. Required details include: medical evacuation
    insurer’s Name, medical evacuation policy number, 24-hour contact number of
    Medical evacuation insurer (must be able to phone it from Botswana – USA 800
