Insurance: We strongly recommend you protect yourself with a short-term travelers insurance policy to cover baggage loss, accident, medical emergencies, and trip cancellation.

International Air Transportation: Flights to Africa are not included in the tour price. The African Conservancy will advise you as to the best port of entries based on your itinerary. Upon receiving your deposit, if you desire, the African Conservancy will also endeavor to arrange the best air-fare available in the category you request. The airline tickets issued by the airlines concerned shall constitute the sol contract between these airlines and the passenger and/or tour members of any of these tours. Should you cancel your trip or change air reservations before or after departure, cancellation penalties may apply.
