ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
 
ACCOMMODATION & CATERING

South Africa, Kenya & Tanzania:
We believe in spending the majority of our time out in the field taking photographs. To be in the best locations for wildlife, we often have to use what accommodation is available. We stay away from over priced, flashy accommodation with health spas etc., but do not make use of cheap, budget accommodation either. Instead we prefer to channel your tour fee into good vehicles, excellent guides and quality locations that offer the best for photography.
All the accommodations we use are clean & comfortable with a hotel grading of 3 or 4 stars and have the following facilities as standard:

> En-suite bathrooms with flush toilets and hot water

> Electricity for re-charging batteries etc.

> Daily servicing

Botswana:
On our "Best of Botswana" Photo Safari we make use of expedition style camps for part of the safari. These are temporary camps set up in private campsites exclusively for us. They are more basic than the other accommodation we use. You will have an en-suite drop toilet and Bucket Shower.

You do not have to participate in the set up of the camp, this will be done for you. All food will be provided and drinks at these camps are included.

FOOD on our photo safaris is based on a western diet.
Depending on the safari, breakfasts and lunches are usually in the form of packed meals taken on board our safari vehicles. Depending upon the location, dinners are either in restaurants or outdoors in a campfire setting.

Special medical dietary requirements can be catered for but advanced warning is essential. A small surcharge may be necessary.

HEALTH & FITNESS

None of the tours WILD4 Photo Safaris offers, requires a high level of fitness from the participants unless otherwise stated in each safari description. However, it is recommended that participants are in good health. If you are concerned at all with your own personal health then please contact us with more details before you sign up for any of our photo safaris.

By paying your deposit and signing this Photo Safari Booking & Waiver & Indemnity Form, you confirm that you are of reasonable fitness and good health and will not in any way, knowingly create a risk to yourself or other tour members. If we deem that you did not fully disclose your medical situation to us prior to the start of the safari, and it ends up affecting the tour or other members on the safari, we will have the right to make alternative arrangements for you to continue your safari on a private basis. Any additional expenses will be for your account.

Medical conditions brought to our attention after you have confirmed your place on a tour will not be considered as exceptions to our cancellation policy.

WILD4 will not assume any responsibility for payment of any medical expenses incurred by participants on any tour.

INSURANCE
It is compulsory for all participants to have their own travel insurance to cover medical, personal and photographic equipment. WILD4 will not be held responsible in any way for the loss of or damage to any photographic equipment or personal belongings, nor for any medical expenses. Our medical insurance will only cover you for evacuation from the field to the closest most appropriate medical facility, at which point your medical insurance would take over.

In order to join the tour, each participant must submit a signed, un-edited WILD4 Booking, terms & conditions, liability & waiver form. Failure to do so will result in non participation with no refund.

PRE TOUR DOCUMENTATION

During the build up to your safari we will email you a number of documents and will keep you informed as to what has been seen and photographed on the tours that preceed yours. Please feel free to write to us at any time with any questions or concerns you may have about your safari.
You will receive the following formal documents from us before your tour begins.

1) Confirmation of receipt of deposit & basic itinerary
2) Kit list of clothing and equipment suggestions
3) Photo tuition documents
4) Pre arrival documents, full itinerary, addresses and contact details

TOUR COSTS

Each individual safari will detail the exact costs that are included or excluded in your tour fee.

Each safari offers a per person SHARING fee and a per person SINGLE fee.

If you are a single traveller and would be happy to share accommodation with another single (same gender) participant then you need to let us know on your booking form.
We will do our best to match you up with another single traveller. However, if another single traveller is not available then you will be charged the full SINGLE RATE PRICE.

NB* KENYAN & TANZANIAN Photo Safaris - re single photographers.
If you are a single photographer signing up for any of the Kenyan or Tanzanian photo safaris and we are unable to find another single photographer to share your vehicle costs, you will be liable for a single vehicle usage surcharge detailed on every photo safari description page.

Cost increases from our suppliers may occur at any time and are beyond our control. In such cases we will be forced to change the price of the safari accordingly and we reserve the right to do so without notice. Such unforseen increases cannot be viewed as grounds for refunds or cancellations.
