Going on a safari to experience all that nature has to offer up close and in person is a truly magical experience. You can head out on a guided tour as the sun rises over the savannah to observe the wildlife and look out for the big five in their natural habitat.
There are several national parks and nature reserves to choose from in countries such as Botswana, Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda, so you can visit one park, or take the opportunity to visit several places to experience different types of terrain and myriad wildlife on your trip.
Because injuries, accidents and illnesses are unpredictable it’s important to take out a travel insurance policy so you have the peace of mind that you’re covered for the unexpected.
If you choose to cover your safari with a Spectrum Travel Insurance policy we offer a 24 hour emergency medical helpline and insure over 100 activities and sports as standard, including safari trekking with an organised guide. And if you fancy heading up in a hot air balloon to see the action from above then that’s covered too.
At Spectrum we offer a range of cover levels and policy types so you can pick the insurance that best fits your needs. Policies cover many aspects such as medical expenses, cancellation and baggage and if you are taking a trip to go on safari, and it’s been booked in the UK, then the good news is that this is covered as standard by our travel insurance policies.
If you have one trip planned this year then Spectrum’s Single Trip Travel Insurance may offer the best option in terms of cover and value. You can cover trips up to 100 days in duration (age dependent) to myriad countries worldwide – as long as the Foreign and Commonwealth Office hasn’t warned against travel.

If you have several trips planned for the coming year then take a look at Spectrum’s Annual Multi-Trip cover. This gives you the freedom to travel as many times as you like (there’s a standard 50 day maximum per trip duration limit, reduced to 35 days if you’re aged 66 and over) as long as each trip begins and finishes in the UK.
If you have a real wanderlust and are going on an extended adventure then we also offer Long Stay Travel Insurance, which is ideal for those aged over 45 who are planning trips of over 100 days in duration.
And if you are going on a backpacking trip, a sabbatical or even to study abroad, then check out our Gap Year Travel Insurance. If you’re between the ages of 18 and 45 then our Gap Year policy covers you for all the countries you intend to travel to after leaving the UK (depending on the area of travel selected).
