Step 2: We will call you (or you can call us) to pay the deposit (10-20% depending on the size of your group plus the costs of internal air tickets - we must book and pay the flights immediately to avoid increased rates later on for the cost of fuel). Payment can be made via bank transfer to our USD denominated account.


Step 3: Upon receiving your deposit we will send you confirmation, detailed trip itinerary, receipts and registration forms. Once the balance is received (2 months before departure), we will send you a pre-departure information with clothing and equipment lists, medical information, and general information needed to prepare for your trip. Your rendezvous instructions, and final trip details will be sent about 2 weeks prior to departure.

Livingstone's Africa must normally make substantial payments to its suppliers (hotels, transportation companies, etc.) far in advance of the scheduled embarkation date. If a trip is cancelled due to force majeure (acts of God, war, labour strikes, earthquake, flooding, etc.), Livingstone's Africa will promptly refund the portion of the trip cost not already advanced to suppliers and use its best efforts to recover and refund the balance as promptly as possible. However, Livingstone's Africa does not guarantee recovery of any or all of the advance payments made, and our use of best efforts to recover these payments will not include the institution of any legal proceedings in foreign jurisdictions.

Livingstone's Africa is not responsible for expenses incurred by trip members in preparing for a cancelled trip (e.g., nonrefundable advance purchase air tickets, visa fees, inoculations, equipment, etc.) or for any additional arrangements should the trip member have embarked prior to the scheduled departure date.

Transfers

You may transfer to another trip without penalty by notifying us of your wish to transfer 91 days or more prior to departure. After that time you are subject to the cancellation fees outlined above.

Insurance

We strongly recommend the purchase of travel insurance when you book your safari. Please consider the following and contact us if you need recommendations.

  • Trip Cancellation Insurance
  • Baggage Insurance
  • International Medical Insurance
  • Emergency Medical Evacuation
  • Accidental Death & Dismemberment
  • Repatriation of Remains

Delayed baggage can be especially frustrating and unfortunately does happen especially if you have 2 or more connecting flights. Please don't think this is a problem peculiar to African airports, just think of Heathrow Terminal 5 in 2008. Most insurance companies will reimburse you for the purchase of additional clothing if your baggage is delayed for 24 hours or more. They will also track your luggage saving you hours of frustrating phone calls. This is a huge benefit and we strongly recommend you purchase insurance.
