a) Due to constantly fluctuating exchange rates, we now quote our tours in 4 currencies. The tour price is however fixed only in the currency printed in bold (South African Rands), and the actual cost in the other currencies listed will be adjusted according to prevailing exchange rates at the time of final invoicing (usually 3 months before the tour.) The same applies to domestic flights (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.
Tipping (drivers, lodge and restaurant staff, local guides and your guide) is NOT included on this tour. Therefore, if you feel that your leader and/or any local staff or guides have given you excellent service, it is entirely appropriate to tip them.
•We will visit a variety of restaurants, when these are available, for breakfasts that are not included, as well as for lunches and dinners; however, on a few occasions you may be required to self-cater for meals. On these days we will go to supermarkets en route to our lodgings where you will be able to purchase food provisions.
•Much of our time is spent in vehicles, as we do have to cover long distances in order to get to the best areas for birds and animals. The more luggage you pack the less room there is in the vehicle, so it is important for the comfort of yourself and your fellow travellers that you do not over-pack. Kindly stick to 20kg (44lb) for check in luggage and 8kg (+-18lb) for hand luggage.
•A related issue is that in all areas that contain potentially dangerous animals, you are confined to the vehicle and are, quite understandably, not allowed to exit.
•Crime is problematic in certain areas of South Africa. Exercise caution as you would for any big city where crime exists. Do not unnecessarily flaunt cash and valuables and do not leave valuables exposed in the vehicle.
