PRE-TRIP PREPARATIONS
PASSPORTS 
One year expiration date from return date (heightened focus on passports in 
international travel) You need at least one blank page. 
Submit a copy. The reason we ask for copies is that we keep them with the team 
leader in case anything happens on the trip. It’s a lot easier to get a temporary if you 
have a copy.
VACCINATIONS 
Get them. We strongly encourage (not require) you all to comply with CDC recommendations 
for travel. You don’t have to provide proof, but you do need proof of Yellow Fever for entrance 
into Uganda. MUSC has travel clinics in all parts of Charleston. Typically travel clinics are 
more knowledgeable in necessary vaccinations & that is why we recommend them. 
Vaccination timeline :: Get them sooner rather than later.

ON THE GROUND
GIFTS & DONATIONS 
Do not give money or gifts to anyone without first consulting your Team Director. 
PMI does like to give generously to the local community, but it is better to do so through 
the proper channels. We do not want to perpetuate a cycle of dependency and 
expectancy. 
You will have the option to give to different programs at the end of the week through tips.
HEAD COUNTS 
Head counts will be taken at arrival/departure points for clinic, hotel, airport, and 
between flights. Your team number is on your nametag and the team leader will ask you 
to call out your number at times. 
Emergency contact info will be on the back of your nametags so make sure you 
keep them in the field/transit. PMI uses the “buddy system” for added 
accountability so make sure your buddy is accounted for before traveling.
TRAVEL 
Van drivers selected for team are the 
best in the region, but remember 
international standards of defensive 
driving are not quite U.S equivalent. 
If you feel unsafe, please remind your 
drivers that they are carrying precious 
cargo. 
Vans should never separate from the 
group in transit to/from clinics, hotels, 
and airport. 
Windows in vans should be closed at 
all times when stopped in transit.
LODGING 
PMI has selected these 
accommodations because they are the 
safest lodgings for our team. But 
remember there are certain procedures 
that should be followed while traveling 
abroad. 
Team members should never leave hotel 
grounds without the approval of the PMI 
Team Leader. 
Example: Jogging outside 
grounds prohibited 
Example: Walking to the PMI 
health center unsupervised is 
prohibited 
Drinking alcohol is prohibited on the trip :: keep your wits when in unfamiliar 
surroundings. 
Please avoid drinking tap/shower water. Use the bottled water provided for you in 
the lobby at all times (drinking, brushing teeth, etc.)

FUN DAY 
The no drinking policy is still in effect on free day. 
Do not pet or touch the animals. 
Do not leave your valuables lying around the resort/lodge. 
Please limit the number of team members on each van roof to eight people during the 
safari. Do not stand up on the roof to take pictures. The driver doesn’t know you are 
standing up and he may hit a bump that sends you flying off the van.
