Tourist Visa Info

The below is tourist visa information for Southern Africa and meant to be used as a guideline only. Visa costs and requirements are subject to change without notice. Therefore, travellers are responsible for checking up-to-date visa requirements with their local embassy or consulate before travel. Please also feel free to contact your choice of Africa’s Eden accommodation or tour operator with any questions.

Note that the border posts of many countries, immigration will often give you EXACTLY the number of days you request rather than a set time frame (i.e. 30, 60 or 90 days). To avoid any issues with underestimating the number of days you need in destination, we recommend rounding up to the nearest number of weeks required. Always check the dates and number of days given before you leave the border post to avoid any issues on exiting the country.

Citizens of certain countries are required to obtain visas well in advance of travel for Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe & Namibia. Please note that some visas can take up to 3 months to be processed. Please consider this when booking, and note that it is your responsibility to check before the final confirmation.

Information about Covid travel regulations and about travelling with minors (children under 18 years of age) is included for each country. Do note that regulations differ from country to country so it is essential to ensure you have the correct documentation. Proof of Yellow Fever vaccination is required to enter only if travellers have been to a country with risk of yellow fever transmission or in transit for 12 hours or longer.
