the children's safety.
wildlife and safety when staying at the safari camp/ lodge
The wild animals are not like those found in theme parks - they
Most of the safari camps are unfenced and dangerous animals can
(and do!) wander through the camps. Many of the animals and reptiles
you will see are potentially dangerous. Attacks by wild animals
are rare. However, there are no guarantees that such incidents will
not occur. Kafue Adventure Tourism, their staff members, associates,
agents, or their suppliers cannot be held liable for any injuries
caused during an incident involving the behaviour of wild animals.
Please listen to the camp staff and guides. The safety precautions
need to be taken seriously, and strictly adhered to.
Don't go wandering off on your own without a guide - even to your
rooms. After retiring to your rooms at night, don't leave them.
Observe animals silently and with a minimum of disturbance to their
natural activities. Loud talking on game drives can frighten the
Never attempt to attract an animal's attention. Don't imitate animal
sounds, clap your hands, pound the vehicle or throw objects.
Please respect your driver / guide's judgment about
proximity to lions, cheetahs and leopards. Don't insist that he
take the vehicle closer so you can get a better photograph! A
vehicle driven too close can hinder a hunt or cause animals to abandon
a hard-earned meal.
Litter tossed on the ground can choke or poison animals
and birds and is unsightly.
Never attempt to feed or approach any wild animal on foot. This
is especially important near lodges or in campsites where animals
may have become accustomed to human visitors.
Refrain from smoking on game drives. The dry African bush ignites
very easily, and a flash fire can kill animals.
Walking in Parks and Reserves
We will walk where possible, but this is often determined by the
local situation at the time.
NOTE: Walking is at
your own risk as these walks can take you close to dangerous, wild
Any special requirements / needs / diet, etc. must be requested
in writing by the client at the time that the booking is made.

Please ensure that you are aware of any 'exclusions'. Your insurance

ensure that you and your belongings are adequately insured before
your departure. Insurance is compulsory when participating in any
of our trips.
It is compulsory to have full medical, emergency evacuation and
repatriation cover for the period of time you are away.
Baggage and Money Insurance
It is advisable to take out baggage and money insurance, especially
if you are carrying a lot of cash or expensive and valuable camera
equipment. You should always carry such equipment as "carry-on"
luggage. Do not put anything of value in your checked-in baggage!
If you anticipate an insurance claim upon your return, be sure to
document as accurately as possible any accident, injury or loss.
Doctor’s notes and police reports will aid any claim.
There are a few basic health matters that require care and attention.
We are obviously not medical practitioners and the following points
are recommended guidelines only. Please consult your doctor and
also check with your health department prior to departure for any
changes in health regulations.
Malaria transmission is at its highest during the warmer and wetter
months of November through to April. From May through to October
the risks of acquiring malaria are reduced.
The malaria parasite requires a human host in order to complete
its life cycle. In our case, our camp is situated in a remote, unpopulated
area, so the chances of contracting malaria are very slim. Nonetheless,
it is worth taking preventative measures.
Both chloroquine-resistant and normal strains of malaria are prevalent
in Africa. Malaria is transmitted by a very small percentage of
female Anopheles mosquitoes. They are only active in the early evening
and throughout the night, at the times when one is usually sleeping
or sitting around the campfire.
If you become ill on your return, while still on prophylaxis or
even once you have stopped taking them, ensure that your doctor
does everything to establish that your illness is not malaria.
It is very important that you drink plenty of water especially during
the warmer months. It is generally recommended that guests drink
at least 2 to 3 litres (4 to 6 pints) of water per day to limit
the effects of dehydration. This excludes tea, coffee and alcoholic
beverages, which act as diuretics and can actually contribute to
Tipping is not compulsory. If, however, you want to tip because
you have received good service, we have enclosed a brief guideline
to assist you:
If the guide has done a good job, we recommend US$5 per couple per
Here we recommend about US$3 per couple per day. This should be
placed in the communal tipping box to be distributed equally amongst
all the staff at a later stage.
A condition of our contract with you
is "Force Majeure". This means occurrence of unusual and
unforeseen circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of
which could not have been avoided even if due care had been exercised
including but not limited to technical, maintenance or mechanical
problems, flight rescheduling, industrial disputes, civil strife,
war or threats of it, bad weather, terrorist activities, etc. In
such circumstances Kafue Adventure Tourism and our 'suppliers' will
assist in whatever way we are able but cannot accept any responsibility
nor provide any compensation.
Your booking is subject to
acceptance of the above Terms and Conditions.
