Some group tours require a Local Payment. The local payment is a separate payment from the initial price you pay before you leave. If a local payment is required it will be shown with the trip price. This second payment is made in Africa at the start of your trip. It is payable in USD.
The local Payment provides the tour leader with the means for expenses that need to be paid in cash to local businesses en route to be arranged in the most cost effective manner possible, a saving we can then pass on to you. It also means we can operate in a way that directly supports local businesses and wildlife authorities as we travel.
Local Payment will not be changed once you have booked your travel arrangements.
Benefitting from Local Prices
By requiring you to pay the Local Payment on tour we ensure you pay local prices at the time you travel. On occasions, if local costs increase, a small increase in Local Payment may arise. Meanwhile, funds not used by the end of the tour are refunded amongst all passengers so you can be sure of receiving the absolute best value for money.
Some clients spend more, some less. In order to give you maximum flexibility on tour we offer a number of optional activities on the tour. To help budget, approximate prices are listed in the Tour Dossier. All prices subject to change and availability.
