Terms & Conditions

Booking Contract

Suricata Safaris acts as a tour operator as well as supplier and distributor for travel and tourism-related suppliers. By travel and tourism-related suppliers, we mean Destination management companies, hotels, activity providers, tour operators, accommodation organizers, transport companies, and more. By the term “booking”, we mean the purchase of any product or service made on any of our websites, or at your local destination when it is part of Suricata Safaris’ network. Bookings are binding when Suricata Safaris has sent a written confirmation to an email address submitted by the customer.

The confirmation is our contract, and it is important that you, the customer, make sure that it is in accordance with your order. Any comments must be made immediately. Payment confirms acceptance of these conditions. Suricata Safaris advises customers to print out the confirmation and take it with them on their trip. You must be at least 18 years of age to make a reservation with Suricata Safaris. Some product owners/suppliers/partners may impose a higher age limit, in which case they will provide notification of this when you order.

Payments and Refunds

The agreed payment terms apply. Usually, a deposit payment is made when the reservation is done. The amount of the deposit depends on the type of safari and accommodation. In the case of Lodge Safaris, the deposit is 50% of the overall value. Payment of the deposit is due at reservation. The deposit is not refundable.

The remaining balance is to be paid at the start of the safari, usually in cash. In case payment with a credit card or PayPal is preferred, the customer has to reimburse the handling fees that are charged to Suricata Safaris (usually 5-8%).

The «Right to Cancellation» or «Make Amendments» from suppliers, partners, operators

Circumstances over which we or our product owners (suppliers/partners) have no control, e.g. weather conditions, breakdowns, labor disputes and the equivalent (force majeure) may result in cancellation/amendment.

Should such cancellation/significant amendment occur, the organizers will provide the customer with immediate notification. If the customer cannot accept any suggested alternatives on the spot, he/she will be given a full refund after Suricata Safaris has been notified by the product owner/supplier/partner.

Insurance and Insurance Cancellation

We recommend all our customers to make sure they have satisfactory insurance arrangements prior to their trip.


It is considered a shortcoming when what you receive deviates from what you have booked and was confirmed. It is also a shortcoming when you are given insufficient or negligent information about conditions that would normally be of importance to the product you have booked.

The following circumstances are not considered shortcomings:

— minor delays when traveling;

— deviations from normal weather, temperatures or other climatic conditions;

— unrealistic expectations about the wild animals presence, or «zoo expectation»;

— circumstances resulting from the travelers own negligence;

— and the not observance of the information on our Tanzania Travel Guide.

Even though we have done what we can to ensure accuracy and availability, some errors may occur. When such occurrences are brought to our attention, we will do our utmost to ensure that you are notified within 3 working days after your reservation has been made. We reserve the right to cancel your reservation and refund the price paid.
