Emergency Medical Assistance
In the unlikely event that you need emergency medical assistance while on safari, the Safari Professionals team stands ready to assist you. As an example, in East Africa, you will be automatically enrolled in the Flying Doctor Society. Should you need it, membership entitles you to emergency medical care in the field and emergency transport to Nairobi in case of serious illness or accident.
A quick call to Nairobi, by cell or satellite phone, will mobilize an aircraft with the appropriate medical personnel on board. Their aircraft are specifically designed to land in the rugged African bush.
