The Safari and climb are likely the most popular adventure travel destination in the world. Space limitations are clearly a reality.  Applications will be accepted strictly on a first come basis. If more spaces free-up, due to accommodation becoming available via cancellations of other parties, early wait-listed applicants will be notified first.

Immediate booking allows for early confirmation and thereby a reduction in the cost of park fees, accommodation and meals. Also, the cost of air travel increases as we get closer to the holiday season.

(OPTIONAL) Extras: Days with the ORPHANS and HESHIE/WERNER; and/or ZANZIBAR HOLIDAY for NON CLIMBERS & KIDS. Please contact Werner Berger for questions and/or options.

Our Lodge at Night

Important:

1. Immediately, email your intention/desire to attend to werner.sri@neptune.on.ca

2. To save your space the payment is due with your Application (original copies only)

3. Checks, cash, or bank transfers only (sorry, no credit cards – the surcharges for Africa exceed 5%…to save trip costs and make it as affordable as possible we believe it prudent to avoid surcharges – a recent PayPal transaction cost  7.4%)

4. If payment deadlines are not met your space may be given to the next applicant on the list (given the historic nature of this experience we are certain to be oversold).

Please note – If you are unable to go and have made payments you may replace yourself. Trip cancellation insurance is strongly advised.
