A Leap Into the Unknown
Kenya between 9 Nov 2016 and 18 Dec 2016
From the point of view re health matters, it should be noted that doctors generally are reluctant, in the UK, to administer Yellow Fever vaccinations to anyone over the age of 60. After I had made an appointment in the UK, had paid a fee and then waited to see a nurse, it became apparent that I was not going to receive the vaccination - because of an increased risk of serious reactions. The medical practice refunded my payment, but I still had had to pay for taxi service to and from the practice, plus having most of an afternoon wasted. It might be wise for Expert Africa to include a bit of information re Yellow Fever & age.
There were a few delays when we requested more information re the booking process, which we felt could have been avoided or made more clear to us."
These travellers had not realised that many details about Kicheche Valley camp, including the fact that it is hosted, are available in our report on the camp.
We explained in an email to them during the booking process that the Yellow Fever jab is not recommended for travellers over 60, so we are very sorry if they missed that. We include basic information about Yellow Fever vaccination requirements, including the fact that the jab is not recommended for certain travellers, in all our pre-departure documentation.
We do accept that when booking a safari there is often a lot to take in.
