If you or any guest in your group needs to cancel a booked trip with us we request that the cancellation be formalized by e-mail immediately. The cancellation rules specific to the contracted program will be applied but we are committed to always try to negotiate with suppliers some kind of refund to alleviate any fees.

2. Our liability to you
We are responsible for ensuring that your travel arrangements are supplied as agreed before the booking. We take responsibility for the services that we provide as well as the services of our subcontractors. Exceptions are airlines accidents or delays, loss of luggage, or medical, force majeur and customs regulation, for which we cannot take responsibility. We are also responsible for identifying any foreseeable risks associated with your holiday. Adventure travel, by its very nature, may carry greater risks than other holidays. We will do what we can to alert you and your companions to such risks and take steps wherever possible to ameliorate against them.
3. If we change or cancel your trip
In the unlikely case that we have to make changes to your travel arrangements, we will notify you or your travel agent at the earliest possible date. We do reserve the right to make changes at any time due to circumstances which lie beyond our control. In the case of significant changes to your itinerary, you have the right to cancel your holiday and be fully refunded. If the changes increase the cost of your holiday, we will notify you and invoice after your acceptance of the difference in price. If the changes decrease the cost of your holiday we will also inform you and refund the difference.
4. The effect of price increases
The prices quoted on our website are correct at the time of publication. We reserve the right to change any of the prices, services or other particulars contained on our homepage at any time before we enter into a contract with you. If there is any change, we will notify you before we enter into such contract and seek your prior agreement to the changes.
Your Commitment to Us
If you have chosen to travel by SouthQuest, you must follow our rules regarding deposit, balance payment, deadlines and information required according to each program. You and your companions will need to be in suitable physical condition to undertake the journey as set out in your chosen itinerary and become fully aware of the possible risks inherent in adventure/wildlife travel. You are responsible to paying for or providing for your own personal equipment, tips, airport taxes, visas, vaccination, additional food and drink, personal expenses, travel insurance, and any other activities or provisions not included in the program.
You must ensure that your travel documents including passport and visas are in order and will remain valid for the entire length of your stay in each destination. We are able to give general advice on these matters but such requirements are subject to change and we cannot be held responsible if you do not check current requirements before your departure.
3. If you change your holiday
If you wish to change your travel arrangements in any way, after our confirmation invoice has been issued, for example, you choose a different departure date or change the hotel, we will do our best to accommodate these changes, but this may not always be possible. Please inform us about possible changes as early as possible. Any request to change your travel arrangements must be made in writing by the person who made the booking. If the cost of the trip which you had booked originally is higher than the cost of the new arrangement, the difference will be refunded discounted any bank fees. If the cost of the amended or new itinerary is higher than the original one, then the extra cost of the new travel arrangement will be invoiced.
4. If you have any complaint
If you have a complaint arising out of what we have agreed to provide for you please let us know at the earliest opportunity. If a problem arises during your trip, it is important that you advise the Tour Guide, Leader and the suppliers in the first instance who will endeavor to put things right. If your complaint cannot be solved locally you should advise us within 14 days of returning to your home country, in writing, with all other relevant information. Your letter will be given prompt attention. If you fail to follow this simple procedure we cannot assume responsibility, as we would have been deprived of the opportunity to investigate the matter and hopefully rectify any problem.
It is essential that all passengers are fully covered with reputable travel insurance cover before setting out on holiday. Insurance must cover cancellation or curtailment, personal accident, medical expenses, loss of effects, repatriation costs and all other expenses that might arise as a result of loss, damage, injury, delay or inconvenience.
