I founded Jenman African Safaris in 1993 – with one vehicle and myself as the guide running walking safaris in the lower Zambezi, Mana Pools. Since then Jenman Safaris has expanded into 14 African countries, we have employed many more staff, and today most of our partners know me personally around the globe. Travel in Africa has always been a passion of mine, and I am lucky to be able to combine my personal interest with my work life. Nevertheless, my team and I never forget that we are arranging your holiday – often an once-in-a-lifetime experience that you have been looking forward to, for years in some cases. This is why our company slogan is; Africa - Your Adventure, Our Expertise. Every season the positive feedback from our clients and agents around the world overwhelms me and motivates all of us at Jenman to carry on, setting Jenman Safaris’ quality standards higher each year. Today, we are not only offering affordable solutions for your once-in-a-lifetime Africa experience, but operate lodge safaris, custom-made private safaris and most other travel related arrangements in Southern Africa, East Africa & Madagascar. I look forward to many more years of welcoming you on an African experience you will never forget.

We run our safaris in keeping with the following guidelines. TIES (The International Ecotourism Society) defines ecotourism as “responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and improves the well-being of local people.” This means that those who implement and participate in ecotourism activities should follow the following principles:

GROW AFRICA A sustainable & educational food-growth project empowered by Jenman African Safaris

‘Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, teach that man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime’ Running safaris and day-to-day operations in a sustainable and responsible way has always been of great importance to Jenman Safaris. In our experience over the years we have encountered so much beauty on the African continent, and yet there is also enormous poverty all over Africa. During my last year’s trip to Zimbabwe, the level of poverty that I saw hit home, and made me realise that some very important work needs to be done to address this issue. We at Jenman Safaris believe that we have the ability to make a difference. In the past, we have seen many charities with good intentions that don’t reach the people in need, or those who only make a short-term difference. Many tour operators who are based overseas want to get involved in sustainable education and interaction, but are not able, thus making sponsorship and charity-aid the only options. Being here, on the African ground, we believe that Jenman African Safaris can get involved in a different way, and to see change happen at a grass-roots level. Based on the famous quote above, we are aiming to support vegetable and fruit gardens around Cape Town – teaching school-kids how to operate a sustainable and self-sufficient vegetable garden providing education, tools and seeds. At a later stage we are planning to expand this project to other towns in Southern Africa. In combination with the above mentioned project, Jenman Safaris has also invested in their local guides. Some of our guides have attended an extensive language course over several months. They are now on the road, practicing their language abilities with our clients before they will be able to guide German guided departures themselves. We have named this project Grow Africa empowered by Jenman African Safaris - hoping to make a difference! Garth Jenman, Managing Director

Minimize impact Build environmental and cultural awareness and respect Provide positive experiences for both visitors and hosts Provide direct financial benefits for conservation Provide financial benefits and empowerment for local people Raise sensitivity to host countries’ political, environmental, and social climate Support international human rights and labor agreements

Local services Where possible we use locally owned and run services and businesses. • Staying in locally owned and run accommodation in preference to foreign owned hotel chains • Buying our food and supplies from local markets and stores • Supporting local business and income by using locally owned shops and restaurants, our guides are all African and know the areas they guide in as well as the areas and cultures in which you will travel Responsible actions We encourage clients through our guides, literature and actions to act in a responsible way towards local people, customs and the environment. Where possible, we support accommodation providers who follow specific eco-tourism principles. For new destinations, we take into consideration environmental, cultural and economic issues. Low impact By keeping our group sizes small we ensure that our operations do not disrupt or lead to the displacement of local people. Small groups require smaller and less obtrusive support vehicles. By biking and walking, we travel in a low impact manner, both on the environmental, cultural and economic issues. Environment We take responsibility for our actions in maintaining and improving the environment • Minimizing water and atmospheric pollution and misuse • Minimizing litter and disposing of litter in the best way possible • Employing environmental considerations into all trip and business planning • We upgrade and service our vehicles on a regular basis so that we minimise the pollution on the environment • We also encourage our guides to use gas to cook with instead of burning firewood from the areas where they stay overnight. The clients all assist in keeping their travelling environment tidy and clean Community support A large percentage of our team is from a local community. We support local communities by visiting villages and schools on tour where the clients can make donations or where they can purchase handmade products. Some groups arrange to stay for a period of time in the villages and get involved in community work projects. We can arrange township tours and dinners for travellers, therefore supporting the local community and economy. Conservation The activities we arrange help to impart knowledge about wildlife, and educate and enable people to experience and get close to nature. Most of our tours include visits to National Parks which charge a conservation fee and in some cases, a large portion of the entrance fee is given to the local community. In consistently supporting these National Parks throughout Southern Africa, East Africa and Madagascar, we help to further the conservation in the respective areas.

We had an absolutely fabulous trip with Jenman Safaris! I have already recommended your company to a few of my friends that are coming to Africa in the next couple of years. All of my “must see” spots in Namibia were on the trip itinerary and a few that I didn’t know that should be. Donna Burton from Canada travelled to Namibia (June 2010)

Hi Nico, you were an excellent tour guide and driver - one of the best I’ve come across. It really was a wonderful trip. There is still frost on the cars outside - what I’d give to be back … Judith Bone from the USA travelled to Botswana (November 2009)

I thought the service Jenman provided was excellent. Our guide, Blessed, was very personable, knowledgeable, and hardworking, as was the driver we had for most of the trip, Sage. The camping and campsites were excellent, as was the food. The lodge we stayed at in Victoria Falls (the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge) exceeded my expectations - very nice. Paul Scofield from USA went on the Botswana Untouched Safari (April 2010)

Hi Hilka, Sam and I are now back in the UK and adjusting to life back on dry land. We had the most fantastic time island hopping around Madagascar, and the trip was even better than we had hoped it would be. Thanks so much for your help with organising everything. Nichola Court from the UK went on a Madagascar Dhow Safari (June 2010)

CAMPING & ACCOMMODATED SAFARIS IN SOUTHERN AFRICA Jenman African Safaris offers three different types of camping safaris in Southern Africa on scheduled tours. For tailor-made tours, please choose the style of tour you would like.

Semi-Participation All of our Camping, half-accommodated and fully accommodated safaris in Southern Africa are semi-participation safaris. We want our clients to be part of the experience and therefore ask them to participate in the tour. This means that travellers 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. We can also tailor-make your camping safari to a non-participation camping safari.

Camping Safaris, semi-participation You will spend most nights camping on your safari. We make use of 3-person dome tents, allowing two per tent, with the following measurements: 2.5 m x 2. 5 m x 1. 9 m.

Half-accommodated Safaris, semi-participation This type of safari offers two different levels of accommodation. Clients will spend some of the nights camping and others will be spent in Lodges, Chalets or Tented Camps. The group will be a combination of clients having booked a semi-participation Camping Safari, a semi-participation half-accommodated Safari, as well as clients booked on our third option – the fully accommodated Safari.

Fully Accommodated Safaris, semi-participation Clients booked on this type of safari will stay in Lodges, Chalets and Tented Camps each night of their safari adventure. The tour group will be a combination of clients who booked one of the above mentioned options. We make use of properties that have camping facilities as well as chalets, lodges or tented camps. Camping and accommodated clients will travel and enjoy their meals together. The accommodated options give the additional comfort of bedded accommodation. Clients are also asked to help out with the camp duties (setting up and breaking down the overnight camps, tents, chairs, packing and unpacking the vehicle, assisting with preparation of meals and cleaning dishes).

190cm 250cm

Accommodation 250cm Camping: We make use of designated campsites either within a National Park, on the banks of a river, or other places of interest. All campsites have shared ablution facilities with showers, flushing toilets and running water (unless otherwise specified in the detailed itinerary). Jenman African Safaris tries to avoid crowded campsites and brings you to secluded spots, often supported by the local community. We make use of spacious 3-person dome tents, allowing two per tent. All tents are fitted with Mosquito-screened windows and doors. In addition, we provide 5 cm thick sleeping mattresses. Sleeping bags can be hired at an additional fee. Accommodated Safaris: For our half-accommodated and fully accommodated Safaris, we make use of mid-range typical African standard lodge accommodation. Accommodation is situated either in National Parks, on the banks of a river, or in other places of interest. The accommodation will be a mix of Lodges, Chalets and Tented Camps. Most of them have a private bathroom with a shower and toilet, others have shared ablutions available. Some properties are equipped with swimming pools and/or bar areas. Please note that clients booked on the half-accommodated Safaris will only stay a certain number of nights in the Lodges, Chalets or Tented Camps; the remainder of the nights will be camping. Clients, who choose our fully accommodated option, will stay in lodges, chalets or tented camps each night of their safari.

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, half-accommodated or fully accommodated Safaris will have 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 tour 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 directly to the African communities.

Vehicles Jenman Safaris makes use of different types of vehicles in Southern Africa. You will either be travelling in one of our custom-built, 10-seater, 4x4 Land Cruisers, a Jenman’s Toyota Quantum Mini Bus, or a 12-seater 4x4 Isuzu Safari. On all tours highlighted with our ), you will be guaranteed to travel either in the Toyota Land Cruiser or the 4x4 Isuzu Safari. 4x4 icon ( Jenman African Safaris reserves the right to make use of different vehicles due to unforeseen circumstances or during high season.

Most of the local pelagic game fish species are found in abundance including sailfish, trevally, dorado, king mackerel, barracuda, wahoo and tuna. The Mitsios Lying approximately 70km north of Nosy Be and 30km off the mainland of Madagascar, the Mitsio Archipelago is only accessible by boat and consists of 12 islands, all lush with tropical vegetation and framed with powder-white beaches. The Mitsios are an excellent fishing and diving destination, and the area offers a large diversity of reef fish, such as eels, barracuda, kingfish and tuna.

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. 5. Insurance 5.1. 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. 5.2. 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, large 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 or in the trailer to ensure maximum comfort inside 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; Semi-Participation 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.
