DEPOSIT

To make sure that you the client have a unforgettable hunting safari, our safaris takes long term planning, for that reason a deposit of 50% of the safari rates is required to confirm and secure your booking. On the last day of the safari, the hunter will be given a detailed invoice. Please bear in mind that advance booking ensures that preferred dates and areas are secured. If a cancellation is made within three months of the beginning date of the safari no refund will be made unless the safari can be rescheduled. If a cancellation is made a handling fee equal to 25% of the deposit will be charged.

From time to time we ask clients to pay the full trophy fees in advance, this will only happen with the agreement of the client and the simple reason for that is to secure a good deal or better price for the client. This usually is when more expensive animals are involved in the planned safari.

TROPHY FEES

Trophy fees are charged on all animals taken or wounded. In such cases where animals are wounded and lost for any reason the full trophy fee is charged. This is standard practice world wide and the guide’s word is final, although every effort will be made to recover the animal during or after the safari. If recovered at a later date the trophy remains the property of the hunter.
