Posted on January 22nd, 2014 by Stephanie Hunt in Resources.

The requirement for visas is always changing.  We summarise below the visa requirements for Canadian  & American citizens as of our latest update.  We will provide you with specific visa advice at the time of booking.  If you are not booking through us and using this as a guide, we strongly recommend that you double check with the relevant consular offices before travelling.

One thing that never changes is the African love affair with passport stamps.  Make sure you have adequate un-used pages in your passport and assume that every country you visit will require at least one full page for visas and stamps.

Also ensure that your passport expiry date is at least 6-months after the conclusion of your trip.
