Alterations of tours:

The right is reserved to change any arrangements should conditions so necessitate.

Insurance:
It must be clearly understood that these are adventure safaris and there are certain dangers and risks which are inevitable. Whilst every care is taken for the safety and comfort of our clients, the company accepts no liability for all or any of the following:

* Damage or loss of property of any client, howsoever caused.
* Sickness, infection, injury or death of the clients, howsoever caused.
* Change of itinerary due to road and weather conditions.
* Damages, directly or indirectly, arising out of delays in departure or arrival
including delays occasioned by the missing of road, rail, ship or aircraft connections.
* War, and other likely calamities which may occurs while on the safari.

All the above and other unexpected situations can arise before or during any type of vacation. Such an event might cause you to cut short your vacation or cause your trip to be cancelled all together. Unfortunately, because of the costs incurred by the tour operator, any cancellation after booking incurs financial penalties, up to and including loss of the entire package price. That is why we strongly recommend a Travel Protection Plan offered by Insurance Agency Inc. For one low per-person price, you can buy peace of mind and keep your vacation worry-free. Ask your travel counsel about it at the time of booking.
