Traveling in Africa contains inherent risks of illness, injury, death, or the loss and damage of property. These may occur while traveling in civilized or remote areas, while traveling by plane, car, boat, horseback, camel, foot or other conveyance. These risks may come from dangerous wild animals, insects, reptiles, the forces of nature, civil disturbances, riots, the negligence of others or acts of God.
