Frequently Asked Questions

Below we provide some answers to questions that are frequently asked by potential clients and travelers to Southern Africa.

How long has African Sky been a tour operator?
African Sky has been conducting quality tours, safaris and honeymoons in South Africa as well as Botswana, Namibia and Zambia since 1998. Over the years, we have hosted a great number of international visitors and can provide you with references of clients in your area that have traveled with African Sky.
Is African Sky a member of an Industry Organization?
African Sky Safaris & Tours has been a bonded member of the South African Tourism Services Association (SATSA) for many years. Our membership number is 1145. SATSA is the primary industry organization that regulates tour operators.
Are African Sky guides registered?
African Sky employs only guides with substantial experience in conducting safaris and tours in Southern Africa. All of our guides are registered for the provinces in which they operate. These registrations are updated annually.
Is it safe to travel in South Africa?
Traveling to any country in the world does involve a certain amount of risk. It is, however, very important to utilize local knowledge to avoid areas of high risk. Over the years no client of African Sky has ever come to bodily harm while in the care of their guide or elsewhere. We take great care to ensure the safety of our clients and to avoid areas where we believe that safety issues may be a concern.
Are African Sky's tours family-friendly?
Almost all of the safaris and tours conducted by African Sky are suitable for families who wish to experience one of the world's most remarkable regions on a guided tour or safari. If none of our itineraries or packages meet the requirements for your family vacation, we can always design a custom holiday based on your preferences. We would always recommend to clients traveling with children younger than eight to not book their safaris in an area where malaria is endemic, but to rather visit one of the safari areas in the southern or northwestern parts of South Africa where malaria is not prevalent.
What should I bring on my safari?
We provide a list of suggested items, as well as some information on medical considerations which are prudent when traveling in Southern Africa. Ensuring that you are well prepared for your safari is very important since some of the areas are remote, with the closest shops often hundreds of kilometers away.
Where will I be met?
You can be met at any location of your choice in the applicable city or, alternatively, you will be met upon arrival at Cape Town or O R Tambo International (Johannesburg) airports by a guide holding a sign with your name. You should be able to see the guide immediately upon entering the arrivals lounge.
