East Africa Child Policy - If they accept children under 16 years of age, some places will not allow them to do certain activities e.g. Mokoro trip and open vehicle game drives. Parents are to be advised of this, and that one parent will be responsible for their child/ children should the other parent want to go on an activity. The parents will also be required to sign indemnity forms for their children. Parents need to be aware of the long driving days and activities not suitable for children. If you have a family with teenagers, it is important to mention to them that there will be early starts throughout the trip, to minimize travelling in the heat of the day, to arrive at your destination early and to allow for activities en route.IMPORTANT: South Africa and Botswana regulations aimed at fighting child trafficking:'All parents travelling with children into or out of SA and/or Botswana may be asked to show the child’s unabridged (full) birth certificate, and where only one parent is accompanying, parental or legal consent for the child to travel (eg an affidavit from the other parent, a court order or – if applicable – a death certificate). You should travel with these documents in case you’re asked to provide them. There are other requirements for children travelling unaccompanied or with adults who are not their parents.' Tell pax to contact the South African High Commission, South African Department of Home Affairs and/or the Botswana High Commission for further information.
