African Safari tour adventure in East Africa carries some measure of inherent risk including, but not limited to, the hazards of traveling in underdeveloped areas where road conditions and other facilities may be poor or lacking; the forces of nature; and accident or illness in remote regions without means of rapid evacuation.
Safari/Tours Bookings are accepted on the specific condition that Acquire Adventures Safaris and its TEAM of independent overseas safari consultants act only as Agents of the passenger in all matters relating to hotels, sightseeing tours, restaurants, all forms of transportation, and other services which may be included in these tours. Acquire Adventures Safaris may purchase these services from suppliers and other independent contractors, without warranties and representations from them, and thus such services are not subject to its control.
The right is reserved to substitute hotels of comparable status and to make any changes in the itinerary where deemed necessary or caused as a result of adverse road or weather conditions, disruptions to airline schedules, or any other valid reason.
While all precautions are taken to ensure the passenger’s safety and enjoyment on these tours, Acquire Adventures Safaris and/or its Agents and Suppliers shall not be liable for death, injury, delay, loss, or damage arising from any cause and in any manner whatsoever or change of itinerary or act, including any acts of terrorism, acts of God and government, neglect, accident, error or omission caused by any of these Suppliers or independent contractors, their employees, representatives or any event beyond the control of Acquire Adventures Safaris.
All baggage is carried at the passenger’s own risk, and Acquire Adventures Safaris reserves the right to exclude certain baggage at its discretion.
The Airlines used to provide flights within Kenya or Tanzania are subject to international air conventions limiting their liability; the limitations of liability are contained on the reverse side of the Airline Ticket and form part of the Terms and Conditions of this package.
Safari Means Transport:
It should be noted that the types of safari vehicles used for guests’ safari tours on rough roads in East Africa are different from tour vehicles on the highways in developed countries and normally they do not have air-conditioning other than the standard ventilation fan.
The Safari 4×4 Land Cruisers used throughout East Africa for overland road safaris on the main highways beyond the Parks are of a standardized design with sliding passenger windows.
Open-sided safari viewing vehicles may be used inside the Game Reserves and Conservancies by visitors on fly-in safari packages.
Acquire Adventures Safaris tour Minivans and 4×4 Land Cruiser Jeeps all with Pop up top are provided depending on the tour program/itinerary and number of tour participants. Guests can also suggest the type of Safari vehicle they require at the time of safari inquiry. 4×4 Land Cruiser Jeeps are quoted higher than Safari Tour Vans. Acquire Adventures Safaris reserves the right to employ the services of the same standard sub-contractors. All Acquire Adventures Safaris tours are led by experienced English-speaking Driver-guides.
The roads between the Parks may have rough stretches and the overland journeys can be lengthy as tour vehicles are limited to a maximum speed of 80 KM per hour.
Local flights between National Parks/Game Reserves are an (extra) Option when overland transfers are exceptionally long.
Seasonal Factors and Resort Facilities:
Some factors are not under our control and early and late in the season, some tourist facilities may not operate. Likewise, swimming pools have to be cleaned and sometimes emptied and maintenance work can affect the availability of certain amenities.
Public holidays and religious festivals throughout the year (particularly Ramadan) may have an impact on the ambiance of a destination and the reliability of shops, banks, and other facilities.
Please be aware that on any African safari tour, guests may be taken into close contact with wild animals. Attacks by wild animals are rare, but no safari into the African wilderness can guarantee that this will not occur.
Neither Acquire Adventures Safaris, nor its employees, nor its suppliers can be held responsible for any injury or incident on the safari. Please note that many safari camps are unfenced and animals are able to wander through the camps at all times of the day and night.
In most of the safari lodges where electricity is provided by a generator, these are turned off late at night until early morning the following day.
In Kenya, the general voltage is 240 and the frequency is 50 Hz. The British three rectangular blade plugs are common. Some National Park Lodges/Safari Camps only have power in the early mornings and evenings. Batteries may be recharged in camps during the day but it is wise to double-check with the Lodge/Safari Camp Manager.
As the sockets may vary, a ‘Travellers Adaptor Set’ is recommended. Voltage sometimes fluctuates and whilst power cuts are rare, they are not unknown. It is useful to carry a torch.
Water from taps in bathrooms is not suitable for drinking. Hotels and lodges usually keep safe water in a thermos flask in guest rooms for drinking and cleaning teeth.
Bottled mineral water is available in supermarkets and Hotels/Lodges
Law and Jurisdiction:
All Terms and Conditions of this agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Kenya, and any litigation necessary to resolve disputes between the parties shall be held in the courts located in Kenya where such a dispute can be solved through arbitration.
