  • Booking Information

    To reserve your place a non-refundable deposit of $4,500.00 is required by January 6, 2017.

    For the safari including the Kasanka Bat Migration extension,  a non-refundable deposit of $6,000.00 is required by January 6, 2017.

    Any booking made after January 6, 2017 cannot be guaranteed as these lodges are holding the bookings provisionally and if other parties request the same dates we must either confirm or release the rooms.
    The balance will be due by June 30, 2017.

    Please note: If the lodges get requests from other parties wanting to confirm the dates they are holding
    for our group, we may need to pay our deposits earlier to secure our booking.

  • Important Information

    IMMUNIZATION: Please note that a yellow fever certificate is now required to enter South Africa if coming from Zambia.
    Anti-malarial medications are very highly recommended for travel throughout these areas.

    PASSPORT: It is your responsibility to ensure you have a current passport, valid for six months after your return home. Please ensure it has at least three blank pages in it for stamps/visas. If it does not, you are likely to be denied access into the country.

    TRAVEL INSURANCE: It is required that all participants have their own insurance for cancellation, medical expenses, baggage loss and medical evacuation. Full trip cancellation insurance is not required, but highly recommended.

    Currency & Credit Cards: The unit of currency in Zambia is the Zambian Kwacha. Bank notes currently available are in denominations of K10 000, K5 000, K1 000, K500, K100, K50 and K20. Some hotels, shops, restaurants and other retail outlets in major towns accept valid international credit cards. MasterCard and Visa are accepted for payment. It must be noted that many shops and retail outlets especially in the rural areas do not accept credit cards and it is essential to have a reserve of local currency in these areas. Hard currency such as US dollars, Euro, British pounds and South African Rand can be used, with the US Dollar the most widely accepted foreign currency.

    Additional Details regarding the acceptance of credit cards and currency per location on the safari is detailed in the PDF.
