COVID-19. As Tanzania no longer requires negative PCR test to enter (unless you are not fully vaccinated), we are unable to offer any flexibility with these terms and conditions.
If we cancel: It is extremely rare that we have to cancel confirmed bookings. We always try to avoid cancelling, but we must reserve the right to do so. We shall not cancel your confirmed holiday less than 60 days before departure unless we are forced to do so as a result of unusual and unforeseeable conditions beyond our control, the consequences of which we could not have avoided even with all due care. If we cancel your tour (except where you have failed to make payment or as a result of force majeure*) we shall offer you the choice of purchasing an alternative tour from us of a similar standard to that originally booked if available, in the same period. If the chosen alternative is less expensive than your original tour, we shall refund the difference. If it is more expensive, we shall ask you to pay the difference. Alternatively, you are entitled to a full refund of all monies you have paid to us. We are not able to pay any expenses and losses incurred as a result of any cancellation.
Kilimanjaro Safari Experience does not provide travel insurance. Therefore, the client must obtain travel insurance from their home country with the minimum recommended medical coverage, medical evacuation, and repatriation coverage. It is strongly recommended that clients also extend their coverage to include cancellation and all other expenses that might arise as a result of loss, damage, injury, delay or inconvenience occurring to the client. When obtaining travel insurance, the client must ensure the insurer is aware of the type of travel to be undertaken so that the insurer may properly cover travel on the applicable tour.
Kilimanjaro Safari Experience will strive to accommodate the special requests of clients, including dietary and accommodation requests, but such requests do not form part of these Terms and Conditions or the contract between the client and Kilimanjaro Safari Experience. Kilimanjaro Safari Experience is not liable for any failure to accommodate or fulfil such requests.
Changes to the itinerary
The client acknowledges by booking a tour with Kilimanjaro Safari Experience that the nature of adventure travel, especially in Africa, requires considerable flexibility and acknowledges that they will permit reasonable alterations to the tour and/or itinerary by Kilimanjaro Safari Experience. The client acknowledges their understanding that the route, schedules, timings, accommodations, itineraries, amenities and mode of transport may be subject to change without prior notice due to circumstances or events, which may include sickness or mechanical breakdown, incidents in the location where the tour will be operated, flight cancellations, strikes, events emanating from political disputes, entry or border difficulties, extreme weather and other unpredictable or unforeseeable circumstances which are beyond the reasonable control of Kilimanjaro Safari Experience and that Kilimanjaro Safari Experience is not liable to any client for such changes or amendments.
