Terms & Conditions

Booking Procedure

If you wish to make a reservation it is advisable first to contact your agent or DRIFTERS ADVENTURES to ensure that there is still space available on the particular venture or tour. If so then complete the booking form and send it along with a 10% NON-REFUNDABLE deposit to confirm your reservation. IF THE FULL AMOUNT IS NOT PAID AS STIPULATED BY YOUR AGENT OR PRIOR TO DEPARTURE DATE OF SUCH TOUR/VENTURE, DRIFTERS ADVENTURES may, at our own discretion and without notice, be entitled to regard the booking as cancelled and to re-book the vacancy. Late applicants may join tours/ventures on an accommodation available basis.

Insurance

Comprehensive travel insurance is compulsory and you should arrange such in your country of origin. You should be covered in the event of cancellation or curtailment, death, any medical or rescue expenses, as well as for any loss of baggage, money or personal items.

Cancellation Procedure

Cancellation of any booking must be received in writing and acknowledged by DRIFTERS ADVENTURES. If a booking is cancelled with the consent of DRIFTERS ADVENTURES, the latter shall retain the full deposit. Should a person cancel a tour/venture and cannot find an immediate replacement:

  1. a) If DRIFTERS has 4 weeks or more notice, only the deposit is forfeited.
  2. b) If DRIFTERS has less than 4 weeks notice, the deposit and in addition a cancellation fee will be payable by the client as follows:

27-21 days 40% of total fare

20-14 days 60% of total fare

13-0 days 100% of total fare

  1. c) If you fail to join a tour/venture or join it after departure, or leave it prior to its completion, no reimbursement whatsoever will be made.

Change of Booking

If, after confirming your booking, you wish to change to an alternative departure date, you may do so subject to availability and by agreement with our booking office. An amendment fee will be charged. Should we not be able to accommodate your request and you therefore must cancel, our usual cancellation procedure will apply.

Exchange Control Regulations

Clients must realize that most African countries have certain currency restrictions with which they must familiarize themselves before traveling.

Rescue and Medical Assistance

In the unlikely event of rescue and medical assistance being needed, other than that provided by DRIFTERS ADVENTURES, the participant or his/her insurance company shall be liable for the entire cost thereof.

Acceptance & Booking Contract

A contract between DRIFTERS ADVENTURES and the client will only be deemed to be concluded once the client or the client’s agent has received receipted notification from DRIFTERS ADVENTURES.
