Border Crossing Tours

Border Crossing Tours

Why do people travel Accross Borders?

Some people travel for a break from the stress of their 9 to 5 routine. Other people look to relinquish the responsibility of daily live. But for the majority of us, travel is about discovery – to taste new foods, experience new cultures and make memories that last a lifetime. If you’re travelling to the beautiful continent of Africa, most regions provide a myriad of safari destinations in close enough proximity to see multiple countries in one holiday. A tour where you cross a country’s borders, or several borders, is the best way to maximize your discovery, and will give you a richer experience of the incredible people, cultures and landscapes. Here are some crucial tips and advice to make sure your border crossing tour goes off without a hitch.

Guided by Experts

When booking your African adventure across multiple countries, make sure that your guides are experts on each country you plan on visiting. An expert guide will know, not only the important facts needed for an educational experience, but the hidden spots ad gems that you wouldn’t know about – or ever see – with an inexperienced guide. On some of our JENMAN tours, we send two guides to ensure our guests have the best possible safari experience no matter what country they are in.

Preparation Makes Perfect

Do your research regarding multiple country travel requirements when you plan on travelling through several countries. Be aware of medical requirements, visa requirements and what you are legally allowed to bring into and out of each country. There is nothing worse than having to deal with incorrect documentation at the border. Should you have any questions, you can always contact to one of our expert travel advisors.

Be Prepared for Change

Remember that Africa is most definitely not a country with a single language and culture but a plethora of different countries each with their own unique cultures, their own customs, rituals and languages. With so much on offer, you can almost guarantee that you will be in for a bit of a culture shock. Our advice? Go with the flow and do not be scared to ask locals about their way of life – most of them love sharing and will have some brilliant stories! With 54 African countries waiting to be discovered by you, it’s recommended to choose a tour operator who has a niche market with suppliers, local guides and their own vehicles. Make sure you have done your research regarding inter country travel regulations and be prepared to play witness to a wide range of cultures, animals and landscapes.
