1.5 All packages are subject to availability and not guaranteed until confirmed. Many lodges and hotels we offer have limited capacity and therefore it is essential to make reservations well in advance of your planned trip.

The company will however make every effort to minimize any increases.



3.1 It is a privilege to see animals in their natural habitat and as such, we cannot guarantee wildlife or game viewing. You must take caution when viewing the animals and carefully follow the instructions given by either the tour guide or wildlife rangers.

3.2 A gorilla or chimpanzee permit guarantees clients will be able to track the primates in question but does not guarantee that the animals will be in plain sight.

3.3 Accommodation is based on a twin or double bedded room, tent, or Banda, with a private bathroom where possible. Single rooms may be available with the payment of a supplement fee but availability cannot always be guaranteed. 

3.4 Four Crane Safaris reserves the right to substitute equivalent or superior hotels. If a hotel of equivalent standard is not available, we may substitute the next best quality hotel or suggest superior standard accommodation (extra charges may apply).

3.5 The mode of transport used will be dependent on the number of clients and the route taken, based on the specifications of the chosen itinerary. Every effort is made to ensure that vehicles are provided in a roadworthy condition but no liability can be accepted for a puncture, breakdown, damage, or any delay as a result of the poor road conditions.

3.6 Our experienced English-speaking driver/guides are a key part of your tour and they are the only person(s) allowed to drive Four Crane Safaris vehicles. The driver’s decision on all matters, such as the route taken, is final.

3.7 We reserve the right to alter any route or arrangement, to cancel the operation of any scheduled tour, or vary the safari services in any way in the event of unforeseen circumstances, such as road closures, bad weather, problems with national parks or hotels and security considerations. In such cases, alternative arrangements will be made as circumstances permit.

3.8 We reserve the right to employ subcontractors to carry out all or part of the services agreed to be supplied.

We reserve the right to deduct all expenses incurred from the money paid.

5.3 No refunds will be made for any unused services, late arrival, or no-show of any of the members of the tour

Note: Some camps have high cancellation charges over peak booking periods, such as December to February or May to July. That may affect the above cancellation charges, making them higher than normal. If higher-than-normal cancellation charges affect your booking, we will inform you in writing at the quote stage and before you pay your deposit. Once your deposit is paid and we have issued you a Confirmation Invoice, you are liable for these increased cancellation charges.

If you paid upfront for gorilla permits or domestic flights at the deposit stage, these are non-refundable. So the cost of these will be retained by us on top of the cancellation charges indicated above.
