WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY Madagascar

Anne – South Africa (June 2008) “The dhow was great, our guide (Angelot) looked after us really well. It was so relaxing not having to think what to do next, everything went as planned. a holiday to remember. We did some great snorkelling around Nose Tanikely, saw dolphins, turtles and lemurs.”

Botswana

Maxime – USA (May 2008) “The group had such a great time; I have come away with more wonderful memories of Africa along with some new friends from all over the world. Our days were just perfect; to start with hot water boiling when we arrived at the campsite for breakfast to wonderfully cooked meals in the evening (better than a lot of restaurants I have been to) We established such a great rapport amongst the group, from washing dishes, to pushing the vehicle out of water/sand.” Frank Gaffney – Ireland (July 2008) “And if Chantal and Mike (and of course Hilka) are typical of Jenman staff I can only applaud your choice and high standards. I will have no hesitation in recommending your splendid and caring company to anybody who may be even remotely interested in an African Experience. And finally Hilka, I want you to once more stand up and take four bows this time, one for yourself, one for Mike, one for Chantal and one for Jenmans.”

Kenya – Tailor Made

Walter & Marg Friese – Canada (February 2008) We have now returned from our safari and I wanted to personally and directly thank you for the work you all did to make this safari possible for us. Our experience was very good and all the services were carried out without any problems or difficulties at all during the safari. Your service was excellent and you would certainly be given our vote of confidence for any such safari to be done in the area. Great continuity of service, a very knowledgeable driver guide and above all it was possible to see the animals and make some great long lasting photos of the whole trip.

Camping Safaris, semi-participation

Our semi-participation Camping Safaris run with a maximum of 10 clients. We operate this type of safari throughout Southern Africa. A guide, who is both driver and cook, will accompany the clients. We want our clients to be part of the experience and therefore ask them to participate in the tour. This means, that the participants will be responsible for performing and helping with certain tasks, such as setting up and breaking down of overnight camps (tents, chairs, tables), packing and unpacking the vehicle, assisting with preparation of meals and cleaning dishes. The guide will do the cooking and be responsible for all other organisational duties.

Upgraded Camping Safari, semi-participation

We offer semi-participation Upgraded Camping Safaris throughout Southern Africa. Accommodation will be a mix of camping and Lodge/Chalet/permanent Tented Camp or Hut accommodation. This type of safari also runs with a maximum of 10 clients and a guide, who is both driver and cook, and offers two different levels of accommodation.

Camping & Upgraded Camping Safari, limited-participation

The group is accompanied by a guide and a driver. The crew will take over all camp duties. Clients are asked to put up their own tents.

Meals

On all of the above mentioned safaris, the tour guide will be responsible for the shopping and cooking of all the meals. All clients booked on our Camping Safari, Upgraded Camping or fully Upgraded Camping Safari will enjoy the same wholesome meals. These meals will be enjoyed together in the evening often around the camp fire.

Local Payment

On most of our Safaris a local payment needs to be paid to the guide before the tours starts. Your local payment covers on the road expenses such as National Park entrance fees, excursions and activities as well as the use of local guides. This provides your guide with sufficient funds on the road and ensures that your money goes to the African communities directly.

With its 5.895 meters in height it is the highest freestanding mountain in the world and the highest peak in Africa. For the adventurous, a climb up Mount Kilimanjaro is a must, taking you through the midst of the equator’s jungle to reach the snow and breathtaking views from the summit. Jenman Safaris offers two 6-Days climbs which have something for everyone. The Marangu Route is very famous and is the easier of the two, known also as “The Coca Cola Route”. You start at Marangu Gate and hike to Marangu Hut (2700m). The following nights will be spent at the 3720 meters high Homboro hut and the 4700 meters high

Kibo Hut. On the fifth day you’ll reach the summit, and at the top of the mountain you will be rewarded with a view that will take your breath away.

This tented camp walking safari through the Greater Kruger National park gives you the opportunity to follow the routes of the ‘Big Five”, Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Buffalo and Rhino and other animals by foot to get the closest view possible. In the mornings we set off at first light. Enjoying the cool morning air we may walk directly from camp or else use a vehicle to get further out. Your ranger will decipher the tracks and signs left by the passing animals during the night. The thrill of walking, tracking and getting up close to some of the creatures of the bush is an unforgettable experience. On the walks there is a lot of emphasis on all the interesting life seen such as trees, plants, insects and birds. A scrumptious breakfast is prepared back in camp and afterwards there is time to unwind and have a siesta during the heat of the day. After lunch is served it is time to head out again. The afternoon activities are walk/ drive combination, looking for tracks and activities in other areas. After the walk we drive to a beautiful spot in the Reserve, where we’ll have sundowners while waiting for a stunning African Sunset. As the diurnal animals and birds anxiously get ready for bed, the stage and sounds change and a whole new world awakens. This is when we connect the spotlight and night drive back to camp, looking for the nocturnal creatures that are so rarely seen during the day. Back in camp a hearty supper and a warm campfire will be waiting for you. After a long day in the bush there is nothing more rewarding than to sneak off to bed and listen to the sounds of the night under a blanket of overwhelming African stars!

“Force Majeure” means, in relation to the Company, any circumstances beyond the reasonable control of the Company (including, but not limited to, acts of God, explosion, flood, fire, war or threat of war, sabotage, civil disturbance, quarantine, government intervention, weather conditions or other unexpected occurrences). The Company shall not be deemed to be in breach of these terms and conditions or otherwise be liable to the Client, by reason of delay in performance, or by non-performance, of any of its obligations hereunder to the extent that any such delay or non-performance is due to any Force Majeure. If the Company is affected by Force Majeure it shall be entitled to, and may in its sole and absolute discretion, vary or cancel any itinerary or arrangement in relation to the tour or safari. No refunds are given for circumstances arising beyond the Company’s control, necessitating alternative arrangements being made to ensure the safety and/or further participation and enjoyment of the tour or safari. In the unlikely event of a vehicle breakdown that is beyond the Company’s control and immediate repair, the Company will arrange to have the spare part sent to the current location in the fastest possible time. The Company reserves the right to alter the itinerary accordingly in order to make up any time lost due to any unforeseen circumstances. The company reserves the right to cancel the tour without prior notification and in such an event only agrees to refund all monies already paid and received from the Client.

The full amount due by the Client to the Company, shall be payable not less than 30 days prior to the date of departure/start of services. (unless otherwise specified in the Agent’s Contract).No Client will be permitted to commence any itinerary without payment in full being received by the Company.

Late applicants may join the tour based on accommodation availability. Invoices in foreign currencies shall be paid by no later than the date specified on the footer of the original invoice. If payment is not made within this stipulated time period, the Client is obligated to request a new invoice as the due amount is subject to currency fluctuations.

5.2.

Travel and cancellation insurance is mandatory for every Client. All insurance is solely the responsibility of the Client. Before a Client commences a tour, he/she should arrange his/her own insurance with protection for the full duration of the travel, to cover personal injury, medical expenses, repatriation expenses and loss of luggage. If a Client falls ill, all hospital expenses, medical expenses, doctor’s fees and repatriation costs are the Client’s responsibility and the Company shall not be liable for any refund of the tour rate whatsoever. The carriage and storage of all baggage and personal effects are at all times the Client’s risk and the Company will not accept any liability for any loss or damage of baggage or personal effects.

6. Liability The Client hereby acknowledges, confirms and records that he/she understands the risk inherent in adventure travel in African destinations and associated activities. The Client is accepted onto the tour and undertakes to do the tour, travel or activity at his/her own risk. The client agrees and concedes that the Company, its representatives and employees shall not be responsible for loss or damage to possessions, or injury or illness to the client or loss of life or consequential damages which might occur from any cause whatsoever, unless directly caused by the Company’s negligence.

7. Health The client shall acknowledge an awareness of the proposed itinerary and shall confirm that he or she is medically

fit, in good physical and mental health and is able to embark on the tour. Any client with a pre-existing medical condition or illness must declare the true nature of such a condition to the Company before the commencement of the tour. Any failure to declare may result in the cancellation of his/her booking.

8. Claims and Complaints In the unlikely event that the client has a complaint against the company, the Company must be informed immediately, in order that an opportunity is afforded to the company to investigate the situation and provide redress. If the client has any further complaints, these must be lodged in writing to the Company within 1 month of the tour end date. If these procedures are not followed, the Company will not start or continue any such investigation of said complaint.

9. Company Responsibility and Rights The information in any brochure and printed itineraries is given in good faith by the Company, and is based on the latest information available to the Company. Printed itineraries serve as a guideline only. The company reserves the right to change the facilities or transport described in any publication without being liable for any compensation or refund.

10. The Company Authority Any decision made by the tour guide, acting as a Company representative, shall be deemed final on all matters. The company shall not be responsible or liable for any client who commits an illegal or unlawful act in any country visited, or the consequences of such an illegal act. The client may in such circumstances be excluded from the tour without a refund, at the sole discretion of the Company or Company representative. If the Company considers a client unsuitable for a tour (due to mental or physical illness or implied danger to any other Client or Company representative) it may at its sole discretion decline to carry the Client further. If a Client causes severe inconvenience or annoyance to other Clients, the Company may decline to carry the client further, without any refund whatsoever. This will only occur after extensive intervention by the tour guide or Company representative.

11. Client Responsibility 11.1. It is the Client’s sole responsibility to ensure that passports, visas, travel permits and inoculations required for the tour, are obtained well in advance and are in order in terms of all the countries to be visited. It is the Client’s responsibility to meet any additional costs incurred either by the Client (or by the Company on the Client’s behalf) as a result of any failure by the Client to comply with such requirements. The Company may not be held liable for any failure on the part of a client to be in possession of the correct travel documentation. 11.2. The onus is on the Client concerned to fully acquaint themselves with the Terms and Conditions set herein and all matters such as visas, required documentation, payment schedules and cancellation policies.

12. Luggage Allowance Baggage is strictly limited to one large bag, weighing a maximum of 12 kg. Also allowed will be a smaller hand-luggage bag or camera bag per Client. These restrictions are essential because of the nature of the tour. Because overloaded vehicles are inherently dangerous and cause unnecessary transport problems, potentially endangering Clients and Company representatives, the Company insists that every Client adhere to these luggage restrictions.

13. Booking on scheduled departures 13.1. Group Size Our group size usually varies between 2 and 12 maximum. By travelling in small groups, the advantages are that campsites and/or lodges are not invaded and time is not wasted in trying to assemble and control large groups of people. It also enables the Company to offer a far more personal service. Our safaris are usually made up of individuals, couples and sometimes groups of friends aged between 18 and 65 years. With the mere physical and youthful mentality which prevails on these tours, they are generally not suited to anybody over the age of 65 years. There is no upper age limit on any tour or safari, but for any Client over the age of 66, the Company requires a medical certificate to confirm physical ability for the chosen tour. Indemnity forms must be completed by a parent or guardian of 21 years or older, for children wishing to participate who are between the ages of 12 and 18. 13.2. Transport Jenman African Safaris cc vehicle fleet comprises fully equipped Toyota Buses (10-seaters), Toyota Land cruiser 4x4 (10-seaters) and Toyota overland trucks (24-seaters for customized tours) with comfortable seating, windows for game viewing and music systems. Additionally, we make use of Toyota Quantum (14-seaters with comfortable seating and music system.) An off-road trailer is fitted to all 10-seater vehicles and is equipped with a field kitchen. All luggage is carried on the roof, in the trailer or in the back of the vehicle. 13.3. Participation The degree of satisfaction and enjoyment you feel at the end of each day and at the end of the trip will depend on you and your capacity to enjoy yourself. This capacity, combined with an active and enquiring mind and a willingness to participate, is essential for all tours. The Company offers two types of participation safaris: Non participation, where clients do not need to participate in safari duties; SemiParticipation where the clients have to put their own tents up, help with food preparation, dish-washing and help with the packing and unpacking of the vehicle. A degree of flexibility is essential because of the mere nature of the parameters in which we have to operate. 13.4. Accommodation For Camping safaris, the Company makes use of one 3-person dome tent per 2 people. Thick (5cm) foam sleeping mattresses are provided for these camping safaris. Other accommodation utilised includes bungalows, rondavels, log cabins, lodges, hotels and tented safari camps, for days where accommodation is specified in the itinerary. 13.5. Prices and Local Payment We endeavour to ensure that every Client is fully aware of all costs involved on each trip. The costs on some tours are divided into two payments. The first amount is paid directly to Jenman Safaris or the Agent before the tour commences; the second amount is the local payment. The local payment must be paid directly to your tour guide in cash in the currency specified on the itinerary. The local payment covers day-to-day group expenses like food, entry fees, local guides etc. Our price, in conjunction with the local payment, includes accommodation, transport on the tour, meals and activities as per itinerary, camping equipment (except sleeping bags), permits, entry fees and a trained and qualified tour guide.
