We are not able to guarantee any flights before receipt of payment as seats are often held for a limited period before ticketing is required so this is a time sensitive issue.


 It is a condition of booking, that the sole responsibility lies with the guest to ensure that they carry the correct comprehensive travel and medical insurance to cover themselves, as well as any dependants/travelling companions for the duration of their trip to Southern Africa. This insurance should include cover in respect of, but not limited to, the following eventualities:  cancellation or curtailment of the safari, emergency evacuation expenses, medical expenses, and repatriation expenses, damage/theft/loss of personal baggage, money and goods. Tours Africana, including their representatives, employees and agents will take no responsibility for any costs, losses incurred or suffered by the guest, or guest’s dependants or travelling companions, with regards to, but not limited to, any of the above mentioned eventualities.  Guests will be charged directly by the relevant service providers for any emergency services they may require, and may find themselves in a position unable to access such services should they not be carrying the relevant insurance cover.

Passport and Visa:

The onus is upon the guest to ensure that passports and visas are valid for the countries visited. The company, their staff and their agents cannot be held liable for any visas, etc. not held by the guests, nor the cost of visas.


Anti-malaria precautions should be commenced prior to departure. Please consult your doctor for specific advice. If you are a contagious-disease carrier, you must let us know when booking your safari. A yellow fever inoculation may be required for travel between African countries. Yellow fever vaccination is required for visits to Tanzania and Zambia (at the time of print)

Wild Animals:

Please be aware that these safaris, tours may take you into close contact with wild animals. Attacks by wild animals are rare, but no safari into the African wilderness can guarantee that this will not occur. Neither the company, nor their employees, nor agents can be held responsible for any injury or incident on the safari, tour.

If you Change you’re booking:

After your booking has been confirmed, should you wish to change to an earlier departure date, you may do so subject to availability by paying a transfer fee of US0. Normal cancellation fees apply if you wish to postpone your departure.


For safety reasons and because space is restricted on light aircrafts, luggage is restricted to 20kg (44lbs) per person for travel in Zimbabwe, Botswana, South Africa, Zambia and Namibia, in a soft bag (including camera equipment and carry on luggage). These limits are applicable when travelling with the services of Air Charters and the maximum’s apply if you are travelling on a seat rate basis so may differ if you have booked on a sole use or private charter option in which case the maximum’s depend on the type of aircraft used and the number of passengers booked. Should you arrive with excess baggage without prior warning, your baggage could be delayed, as we may have to fly the baggage into camps at a later stage at considerable extra cost to you. However, should you know in advance that your baggage will exceed the limit; we can usually book an extra seat for the bags on the aircraft, at a nominal additional cost.


Neither Tours Africana  (the Company) nor any person or agent acting for, through or on behalf of the Company shall be liable for any loss or damage whatsoever arising from any cause whatsoever and without restricting the generality of the afore-going shall particularly not be responsible for loss or damage arising from any errors or omissions contained in its brochure or other literature, loss or damage caused by delays, sickness, theft, injury or death.

The Company may at its discretion and without liability or cost to itself at any time cancel or terminate the guest’s booking and in particular without limiting the generality of the afore-going it shall be entitled to do so in the event of the illness or the illegal or incompatible behaviour of the guest, who shall in such circumstances not be entitled to any refund.

Changes to Schedules

Although every effort is made to adhere to schedules it should be borne in mind that the Company reserves the right and in fact is obliged to occasionally change routes and camps on safaris, tours as dictated by changing conditions. Such conditions may be brought about by seasonal rainfall on bush tracks, airfields and in game areas, by game migrations from one region to another, or airline or other booking problems, etc.


Whilst the company uses its best endeavours to ensure that all anticipated accommodation is available as planned, there shall be no claim of any nature whatsoever against the Company for a refund either in the whole or part, if any accommodation or excursion is unavailable and a reasonable alternative is not found.

Please note that we subcontract the flying services to independent charter operations, and they are responsible for the flying.


We cannot be held liable for any delays or additional costs incurred as a result of airlines not running to schedule.
