A deposit of 50% of the daily rates for the safari is required. Where certain of the Dangerous Game have been chosen for the hunt on the specific safari, we might require a 50% deposit on those animals in addition to the 50% deposit on the daily rates. We have quotas on our dangerous game and therefore have to reserve the trophies well in advance for our CLIENT’s by virtue of the 50% trophy deposit.

Any CLIENT has to make his request for cancellation of safari for the specific year in writing. No request for cancellation will be considered within 180 days from starting date of safari.

The CLIENT’s booking is confirmed conditional to receipt of ALL payments stipulated by us inclusive of the deposit on time. To secure the hunting dates a deposit of 50% of the Daily Rate of everyone coming on safari is required.

ADVANCE BOOKING SHOW || HIDE

Advance bookings can be made with us and securing those hunting days with a 50% deposit of the Daily Rate for such a safari. The ROE (rate of exchange) in the year of making the booking will apply, and will be adjusted prior to the pre-booked safari allowing for annual increases and ROE in the specific year in which the Safari is undertaken. Advance booking will also ensure the CLIENT of his quota of species he wishes to hunt, available to us each year.

BALANCE PAYMENT SHOW || HIDE

The balance payment of the Safaris inclusive of the daily rates needs to be paid 90 days prior to starting date of safari. The trophy fees on animals allocated to and accepted by the CLIENT needs to be paid in full on arrival and can be done through the exchange offices located at OR THAMBO INTERNATIONAL Airport
Additional safari costs can be paid on the last day, prior to departure again using the exchange offices at OR THAMBO INTERNATIONAL Airport

CURRENCIES SHOW || HIDE

All safaris are cost in ZAR (South African Rands) and the ROE used to quote the safaris in USD. We therefore may have to adjust the safari cost where monies have not been paid due to this. Our prices on the trophies are also based on the ruling ROE between the ZAR and USD and as these change we reserve the right to amend the trophy fees.

ARRIVALS & DEPARTURE SHOW || HIDE

Late arrivals and early departures will attract additional costs. Early departures will result in the full safari daily rate paid to remain with Shingelani Safaris without a refund to the CLIENT.

HUNTING QUOTAS SHOW || HIDE

At Shingelani Safaris we contract with a number of concession areas, growing our concession every year. We therefore have access to a variety of species each with quotas in the various hunting areas where we hunt. No quota to a CLIENT can be allocated and confirmed without the CLIENT making payment as stipulated in the BALANCE PAYMENT section. Once all payments have been made, we will notify the CLIENT of his quota for acceptance of animals for his safari allocated to him and thus being sold and not available to any other CLIENT.

The animals sold are taken off the annual quota for the specific hunting concession leaving the balance available to be booked by other CLIENTS.

The quota allocated and confirmed to the CLIENT needs to be hunted as they have been paid for, and no refund will be made if the CLIENT do not take his allocated quota for any reason whatsoever, all costs inclusive of additional licence fees, baiting fees or hunting fees.
