PLEASE NOTE: By paying the required deposit upon making your reservation, you automatically accept the following Terms & Conditions.

 

WAIVER
The website, marketing material and offers send by email may be subject to changes, in case of obvious typing errors.

Due to the nature of traveling and hunting in South Africa, conditions are subject to change – Pete Safaris reserves the right to alter or change any conditions, as a result of considerable currency fluctuations, political disturbances, devaluations, increased rates at our external partners or other circumstances that we are not in control of.

All prices on this website is presented in American Dollars (USD) and based on the local currency Rand (ZAR) – If the South African Rand, for any reason, goes below $13/Rand, we reserve the right to raise the offered prices accordingly.

Pete Safaris takes no responsibility for any injuries or accidents that may happen during your hunting/photographic safari.

Pete takes no responsibility for any delays or changes to your safari, as a result of government interventions, the weather or other factors that we are not in control of.

 

BOOKING / PAYMENT
To book a safari and secure your dates, a $500 deposit pr. hunter is required and must be bank wired into our account in South Africa (we will provide you with banking details) – The balance is to be paid before your departure.

You will be able to pay with credit card (VISA/Mastercard) or cash (USD or South African ZAR). Bank wiring the balance will only be allowed, if you can make a transfer which can be confirmed in our account before your departure from the camp.

 

CANCELLATIONS
Hunts cancelled with more than 90 days notice, may carry deposit over for the next year (maximum 1 year ahead). In case you are unable to book another safari within that year or if you cancel a safari with less than 90 days notice, we reserve the right to keep your deposit, in order to make up for lost revenue. No refunds will be given.

TRAVELING WITH CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 18 YEARS
As also described under “Travel Information”, special regulations apply for people traveling with children under the age of 18 years. Read more HERE.

 

BOOKING AIR TRAVELS IN GENERAL
When booking your airline tickets to/from South Africa, please make sure that you have sufficient transfer time in Johannesburg (O.R. Tambo Airport). During peak season, long queues usually build up at the passport control and claiming your luggage may take a while. When flying domestically from Johannesburg to Port Elizabeth (or other domestic destinations), you also have to consider that latest check-in for these flights are 45 minutes before departure! In other words, make sure you have enough time for unforeseen delays and rush hours. We recommend at least 3 hours transfer time in Johannesburg – This especially applies if you plan on bringing your own firearms!

 

IMPORTATION OF FIREARMS
In general, we recommend clients to bring their own firearms. Should you choose to do so, then please make use of our detailed guide (Importation of Firearms), which describes step-by-step, how to bring your own weapons. If you follow this guide, the process is very straight forward. Should you however prefer to rent a rifle from us, we do have a limited amount of rifles available – Price is $150 pr. hunter, including ammunition.

 

“NO HIT – NO PAY”
– If a client is not succesfull in getting all his animals within his “package”, and the animal is not wounded by the client, the package price will be re-calculated/reduced by the resulting trophy amount (based on the specific package deal and the given discount) – In other words, clients don’t pay for what is not hit. Clients pay in full amount for wounded animals.
