Terms and Conditions

Booking Your Trip

To secure your spot on an Africa Travel Adventure (ATA) trip we will take some information when you contact us, and when we receive your deposit, your trip date will be secured.

We accept US$ in the form of personal or bank checks, or Money Orders. The payment schedule is as follows:

  • • US $500 per person due upon booking (to secure your spot).
  • • US $700 per person due on the 1st of the 4th month before departure.
  • • Final payment on the 1st of the 2nd month before your departure.

If we haven't received your payment and no special arrangements have been made, we will assume that you've canceled and we will fill your spot from our waiting list.

Additional payments may be required on customized itineraries. We will inform you of these once you have placed your initial deposit.

Cancellation Policy

Cancellation of a booking or failure to join a tour will result in a retention of funds by Africa Travel Adventure as follows:

  • • Upon receipt of written cancellation by any member of the tour indicated on this reservation 30 days or longer prior to departure, 20% of the reservation of the canceling party will be retained by Africa Travel Adventure and the balance of the package price refunded.
  • • If a cancellation is received at least 14 days and up to 29 days prior to departure, 50% of the package price will be retained by Africa Travel Adventure.
  • • If a cancellation is received less than 14 days prior to departure, 100% of the total package price will be retained by Africa Travel Adventure and all outstanding payment will become payable immediately.
  • • Should the canceling party be able to find a replacement for themselves no less than 14 days prior to departure and the replacement completes this booking form individually, no retention of funds will take place. However, should no replacement be found by 14 days prior to departure, a 100% cancellation penalty will apply to the canceling party.
  • • Africa Travel Adventure and its agents reserve the right to terminate, at their discretion and with immediate effect, the participation of any person on the tour.

Kilimanjaro/Safari Guaranteed Departures

We have many scheduled departures throughout the year. All of our Kilimanjaro/Safari departures are guaranteed – even if there is only 1 person. This means that we will NEVER cancel a Kilimanjaro climb/safari due to low sign up.
