Travel insurance recommendations for safari

Just booked a safari to Kenya for September, can anyone recommend a good travel insurance agency here in Switzerland? All the agencies recommend by the tour company only have policies for US residents, as did the ones on Tripadvisor I looked up.

Any pointers for what I should include or avoid are most welcome.

NOTE TO SITE ADMIN: please do not move this posting to the insurance section, its subject is travel.

Re: Travel insurance recommendations for safari

If you only need a short term, but comprehensive insurance, you might want to have a look at www.worldnomads.com

If you had paid your trip with a credit card, check if you can get an attractive insurance offer from your bank (UBS offers travel insurance for 72chf/year with their credit cards). Conditions are usually same as with an independent insurer, but there is a requirement that at least 50% of your trip has to be paid with their credit card.

Other options you can look up at http://en.comparis.ch/reiseversicherung/familie.aspx
Don't go with the cheapest basic insurance, but check where can you get a good offer for an insurance which actually covers anything more than "Personal assistance".

Check your household insurance, perhaps you are already insured for theft/robbery and can avoid paying twice for the same thing with a travel insurance.

Would also make sure you have necessary vaccinations (yellow fever etc) before travel... Swiss tropical institute can guide you on what is appropriate.
