TERMS & CONDITIONS

  • Safari Logistics accepts no responsibility for any delays caused by unforeseen circumstances, mechanical breakdowns, diversions due to weather or any other cause. However, we will endeavour to rectify the situation to the best of our ability.
  • We reserve the right to sub charter third party aircraft should we not be able to provide our own aircraft.
  • The flight is strictly subject to runway conditions and serviceability. If the destination airport/ airstrip is unsuitable for our aircraft for any reason, we will divert to the nearest alternative airport/ airstrip.
  • The quotation is subject to availability at the time of confirmation.
  • Prices are based on current fuel pricing in Zimbabwe. An escalation in fuel will influence the price and Safari Logistics has the right to adjust it without prior notification.
  • SCHEDULE: Safari Logistics operates daily, with a minimum 2 passengers. The schedule is subject to change, depending on confirmed seats per route, weather, airstrip conditions and mechanical issues beyond our control. Any guest arriving less than 30 minutes before the stipulated departure time may have their seat cancelled to avoid knock-on effects with the schedule for the remainder of the day. All flights operate during daylight hours as many of the airstrips are unlit.
  • CONNECTING FLIGHTS: Safari Logistics accepts no responsibility for any delays caused by unforeseen circumstances such as mechanical breakdowns, diversions due to weather or any other cause. For this reason, Safari Logistics recommends that all passengers overnight in Victoria Falls or Harare prior to and after their safaris in Zimbabwe. Adequate Travel Insurance is essential as Safari Logistics is not responsible for missed onward connections or having to overnight passengers due to unforeseen circumstances. Where possible, Safari Logistics will offer alternative means of transport if weather or mechanical breakdown prevents the plane from taking off.
  • WEATHER AFFECTED FLIGHTS: During Zimbabwe’s rainy season (typically November to April) certain airstrips may be out of service. In these cases, the closest alternative airstrip will be used. It is imperative that passengers have adequate Travel Insurance to cover cancelled flights, costs of alternative accommodations/arrangements and possible missed onward connections.
