Single Supplement: The single supplement cost for this tour will be charged if you wish to have single accommodation.

We will make all reasonable efforts to ensure that a rooming partner is found if you do wish to share.

Important Notes:
- Due to constantly fluctuating exchange rates, we quote our tours in 4 currencies. The tour price is however fixed only in MAD, and the actual cost in the other currencies listed will be adjusted according to prevailing exchange rates at the time of final invoicing (usually 4 months before the tour.) The same applies to approximate flight and single supplement rates, which are also quoted in the respective fixed currency.
- Rates are based upon group tariffs; if the tour does not have sufficient registration a small party supplement will have to be charged.
- Furthermore, these costs are subject to unforeseen increases in tour related costs and may have to be adjusted as a result.
- Lastly, we may be forced to change or alter the itinerary and / or the designated leader/s 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: As noted above, gratuities (drivers, hotel staff, restaurants etc.) 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.

Special Notes:
- 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. The more luggage you pack the less room there is in the vehicle, so it is important for the comfort of your fellow travellers that you do not over-pack. Kindly stick to 20 kg (44 lb) for check in luggage and 8 kg (18 lb) for hand luggage.
- We will visit a variety of restaurants for lunches and dinners when these are available; however, on a few occasions you will be required to self-cater for dinners. On these days we will go to supermarkets en route to our lodgings where you will be able to purchase food provisions.
- It is important for you to be aware that it can get quite hot on this tour. Since we do not have any strenuous walks on this tour, it is however manageable. It can also get cold at night.
