Although it isn’t the most exciting part of organising your trip, getting adequate travel insurance is a compulsory part of your experience with East African Playgrounds.

You can book your travel insurance with us on this webpage.

East African Playgrounds have partnered with insurance company Endsleigh to create an affordable and comprehensive travel insurance policy specifically for our volunteers. This optional policy is specifically designed to insure you for all your travel essentials this summer. The policy is available to anyone up to the age of 65 and covers every activity we offer on the Uganda Volunteer Project and Gorilla Trek. 

It is really important that you make sure you’re covered for the whole time you are away, this includes the days spent travelling to/from Uganda. One week is considered as 7 days, so when working out which duration of cover to purchase you need to count the days you will be away including the day you fly out and the day you return home.

For a full list of everything our insurance covers click here (1). Full terms and conditions for our insurance policy can be found here (2). If you have any pre-existing medical conditions then you must carefully read our terms and conditions as it is your responsibility to make sure that you qualify for the insurance you are purchasing.
