- Vaccinations – Arranging your vaccinations for Africa should be high on your to-do-list. Some African countries require proof of immunisation for diseases like Hepatitis A, typhoid fever and polio.
- LOCATE - Register with LOCATE to keep a record of where you are travelling and where you will be staying. This is used to help the embassy to contact and assist you if there's a disaster or any civil unrest in your area.
- Organised trips - There are many organised tours of African countries which could be worth considering. Not only is this a safer option than going alone, you might find special rates by booking in advance.
