Bookings/reservations are made through Simba Africa Expeditions, a company registered in Uganda with the corporation of the registrar.
Booking your holiday
In order to reserve a safari, the customer must fill out, sign, and email a booking form together with a 50% payment of the requested safari fee, or the full amount must be paid within four weeks before the departure date. When the company sends out a confirmation invoice, which typically happens within 24 hours of receiving the booking form, the reservation is accepted, and a contract is formed.
The company must receive payment for all confirmation bills no later than four weeks before departure.
Amendments and cancellation
If you want to change your plans, the Company will try its best to help you. Any requests for amendments must be made in writing and be signed by the person who signed the reservation form. You must pay a 50% amendment fee per booking if the Company is successful in implementing your requested amendment. There won’t be any fees if the Company doesn’t succeed.
Any cancellations must be made in writing and must include the booking form signer’s signature. Cancellations take effect the day after the company receives them. Recorded delivery is highly advised. Depending on how far in advance the company gets your cancellation notice—and the cost of your vacation insurance—the following fees will need to be paid.

Cancellation by the company
The company will treat your booking as canceled and impose the above-described cancellation fee if you don’t pay the remaining balance of the holiday price at least eight weeks (fifty-six days) before departure. If the company must cancel your vacation for any other reason prior to your departure, it will make every effort to offer you alternate arrangements at no additional cost or a replacement package of lower quality. You may then seek reimbursement from the company for the price difference or request that all money you paid be returned to you as soon as possible. Additionally, the Company will compensate you as described in the paragraph unless the cancellation was due to force majeure.
