The same applies to approximate domestic flight (where applicable) and single supplement rates, which are also quoted in the respective fixed currency.

b) Rates are based upon group tariffs; if the tour does not have sufficient registration (a minimum of 6 paying participants) a small party supplement will have to be charged.

c) Furthermore, these costs are subject to unforeseen increases in tour related costs and may have to be adjusted as a result.

d) Lastly, we may be forced to change or alter the itinerary and / or the designated leader at short or no notice due to unforeseen circumstances; please be aware that we will attempt to adhere as close to the original program as possible.

ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE DETAILS
This tour does not include any international airfares. Day 1 is essentially an arrival day in Windhoek, Namibia. However, should you arrive before 11am on day 1, we have some local birding we will do in the afternoon around Windhoek. Further meeting details in this regard will be forwarded to you in due course. The tour will conclude by 11am at Livingstone International Airport, Zambia on the day 18. If you wish to arrive early and/or depart late and would like assistance in this regard kindly contact the office.

FLIGHTS
Windhoek (Hosea Kutako International Airport) is the main port of entry for international flights into Namibia. The more reliable airlines with the most direct routing for these flights are Air Namibia and South African Airways. For departure from Livingstone (Zambia), the best routing is through Johannesburg (OR Tambo International Airport). We have the capacity to advise you on the best route according to your preferences, but your local travel agent will best be able to book these flights for you. If you would like further assistance kindly contact the office, we have a full-time in-house travel consultant that will happily help you plan your route. However, please DO NOT book your international flights until you have consulted the office for confirmation on the status of the tour.

Tipping:
As noted above, gratuities (drivers, hotel staff, porters and restaurants) are included on this tour. However, this does NOT include your leader/s. If, therefore, you feel that he/they have given you excellent service, it is entirely appropriate to tip them.

PLEASE NOTE:
•Much of our time is spent in a specially converted overland Toyota Dyna Truck, as we do have to cover long distances in order to get to the best areas for birds and animals. However, the vehicle is fairly spacious with large windows and pop-up rooftops which allows for great bird and mammal viewing. Despite this, we recommend that you do not over-pack for the comfort of your fellow travellers and yourself. Kindly stick to 20kg (44lb) for check in luggage and 8kg (+-18lb) for hand luggage.

•Please be aware that the vehicle does not have air-conditioning. However, the windows are large and will remain open for most of the time, while the front windscreen also folds down completely, providing a pleasant through-flow of air.

•During the tour, we visit several national parks and game reserves which contain potentially dangerous animals and therefore you are confined to the vehicle and are, quite understandably, not allowed to exit except at designated viewing and picnic sites.

•Temperatures in Namibia, Botswana and Zambia can be very high at this time of year, especially when compared to the cooler winter months. If you suffer easily from heat exposure, please do contact the RBT office for more information.

Notes:
Airfare is not included in the tour price.
