New laws travelling with Children
- All minors under the age of 18 need an unabridged birth certificate (both parents names appear on the birth certificate) to enter South Africa.
- If the child is traveling with only one parent, the absent parent needs to send a signed affidavit giving permission for the child to travel with the other parent.
- If both parents are absent, both must sign affidavits giving permission & ID documents for the child to travel with the adult given permission to.
Which vaccinations do I require?
No compulsory vaccinations (shots) are required. As Savannah South Safaris is situated in a malaria-free zone of South Africa, malaria pills are not necessary. Although every care is taken to ensure your safety, hunting in the African bushveld does have its dangers, and so full medical insurance is also recommended.
