Final payment is due prior to the start of your travel arrangements and African Bush Camps must receive payment no later than 8 weeks before your intended travel date. Travel with us is conditional upon full payment of this invoice.
Our booking conditions apply to all travel arrangements with us.
Our cancellation policies are as follows:
It is a pre-requisite for all travellers to undertake full comprehensive travel insurance which includes emergency evacuation cover as well as cover in the eventuality of delays. Delays may result from weather and/or acts of god and flight delays or cancellations may occur. Please make sure to keep your personal belongings with you at all times whilst on safari. We cannot accept responsibility for the misplacement or theft of articles whilst in our camps or during your travels. The logistics of inter-camp communication, as well as the scheduling and costs of charter flights, may not be favourable for the return of articles unless you are willing to pay for the full cost of getting your goods to you. This issue is possibly the most prominent form of inconvenience for guests who have left their goods behind at a camp.
Roads in the bush are rough and bumpy, we occasionally travel “off road” and injuries can occur. African Bush Camps, their staff members, associates or agents cannot be held liable for any accidents or any damages. Most places booked for travel are in wild and remote parts of Africa with dangerous wildlife and often harsh terrain; hence you will be exposed to potentially hazardous activities. African Bush Camps, its associates, partners and staff will not be held liable for any injury, loss of life or damage whatsoever during and after the travel arrangements.

Guides, other guests, and other staff may take photographs including those of you on safari. African Bush Camps reserves the right to use these images for marketing and legal purposes only. However, you can be assured that the type of photographs shall not be used so as to compromise one’s integrity.
Through booking and paying for your safari African Bush Camps assumes that you agree to the terms and conditions of travel, and thereby waiver indemnity to African Bush Camps, its agents, associates and employees.
