Going on a safari holiday can be an exhilarating, once in a lifetime experience, but it can also lead to safari holiday accidents, if you aren’t careful.
Safari holiday accidents
Here are five of the biggest threats of a potential accident claim from a safari holiday.
- Animal attacks leading to a travel claim: When you are on a safari holiday you should have a guide who will safely take you round the park showing you the animals; however, animals are unpredictable and travel accidents in the form of an animal attack can potentially happen.
- Malaria: If you do not take the correct immunisations before embarking on your safari it is likely that you may sustain a travel injury in the form of malaria.
- Bites and rashes: In the wild there are a lot of insects flying around and creeping around the ground and it is likely that you could be bitten. This could be from something as minor as a common mosquito or something more serious like a snake which could cause you quite a considerable travel injury.
- Thieves: In a foreign country you should always be alert and vigilant to your possessions and safari holidays are no exception. To make sure you don’t have to make a travel compensation claim always keep your personal belongings with you especially valuables such as jewellery, passport and money.
- Being conned: If you search the internet for safari holidays you will come up with an abundance of sites advertising the best safari holidays. However, not all these will be genuine and you could end up being conned. If a travel compensation claim is the last thing you want to think about then ensure the company you are using are genuine.
