Clients receive a detailed itinerary describing the different places they will go and things they will see, so they know what to expect. The safari services agreed with the client will be provided, except in the event of unforeseen circumstances, such as road closures, bad weather, problems or security considerations. In such cases the itinerary may be changed, at the discretion of the company, clients informed and alternative arrangements made as circumstances permit. Our Company will make every reasonable effort to ensure the same quality and character of the itinerary.
Clients must accept that conditions in Tanzania are not the same as those in developed countries. In Tanzania, we are exposed to unannounced and sudden changes in government regulated fees and taxes, such as national park fees and taxes. Above & Beyond Photographic Tours & Safaris has the right to pass these local taxes/fees on to their customers.
