How is this country's ability to cater for vegans/vegetarians/celiacs?
Yes. We are able to cater for any specific dietary requirements, but it’s vital that you let us know of these as soon as possible. This is because remote locations may have to plan specific meals in advance of each trip, this could also mean that there is a limited choice.
I have allergies, will these be catered for?
Yes, the hotels and lodges in Zimbabwe and Botswana are all able to cater for allergies. Please let us know of your requirements as soon as possible, so that we can organise the required food.
Is it safe to drink the tap water?
The tap water at all the lodges and hotels that you will stay in is safe to drink. We wouldn't recommend drinking water from outside your hotels and lodges, without first checking with your Pack Leader.
I don't drink alcohol, will this trip be full of drinking?
Whilst the focus of this trip is on the wildlife and natural beauty of Zimbabwe and Botswana, it’s likely that some Flashpackers will enjoy a few drinks in the evenings. There will always be non-alcoholic alternatives available and your Pack Leader will be able to make drink recommendations.
