In the 2011 Condé Nast Readers Travel Awards South Africa was voted in the top 10 favourite holiday destinations worldwide.

Victoria Falls and Zambia

Victoria Falls & Zambia The Victoria Falls moved David Livingstone, renowned explorer and the first white man to see this natural wonder of the world, to say: “a scene so beautiful it must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight”. Known as “Mosi o a Thunya” (the smoke that thunders), the Falls are one and a half times as wide and twice as high as Niagra Falls, and are a truly awesome sight.The Zambian side of The Victoria Falls provides an entirely separate experience to its better-known Zimbabwean counterpart. Situated in the 46-hectare Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Wildlife Park, the views are spectacular, you can sidle right up to the falling water by walking down a track to the base of the falls following walkways perched over the abyss.The other highlight of this region is the Zambezi River whose beauty and splendour lured early adventurers and explorers. Still even today many modern day travellers are unable to resist the River’s magnetism as it provides countless opportunities for adrenalin-packed water sports or incredible game and bird viewing. Note:Yellow Fever Vaccination Certificates are required for clients travelling to Zambia.

Cuba Cuba is the largest island in the Caribbean and is situated 90 miles south of Florida. It is a fascinating island that is rapidly growing in popularity due to its great mix of cultural heritage as well as some of the finest beaches with miles of soft white sand and clear warm waters. Add to this the warm and friendly multiracial people, the Cuban passion for music and dance, famous rum cocktails and balmy tropical nights and you have all the ingredients for a wonderful holiday. In the 2011 Condé Nast Readers Travel Awards Cuba was voted in the top 15 favourite island destinations worldwide. Cuba is a unique and very special destination, however the island’s continued economic development is not at the same level as we have in Europe and some aspects of life in Cuba are very different from what we experience here in Ireland.

Important Holiday Information Clothing & Customs Generally, lightweight casual clothing is the most suitable during the day and for touring. In case of cool evenings a light jacket or sweater is advisable. At game lodges and on safari a thick sweater or jacket is advisable as early morning and evening game viewing drives can be chilly on open vehicles. For the evenings in 5 star hotels and for restaurants, particularly in the cities, a tie and jacket is preferred for gentlemen and dresses for ladies. In Middle Eastern countries it is respectful for Women to dress modestly (with knees and elbows covered) when visiting outside of resort. Dress codes in the Caribbean vary. Ramadan: Ramadan is observed by all Muslims and in U.A.E. and Egypt. It begins with the sighting of the new moon after which all physically mature and healthy Muslims are obliged to abstain from all food, drink, gum chewing, any kind of tobacco use between dawn and sunset. In 2011 Ramadan begins 01/08/11 and ends around 30/08/11. Cuba: "Cuba is a unique and very special destination, however the island’s continued economic development is not at the same level as we have in Europe and some aspects of life in Cuba are very different from what we experience here in Ireland .It is important that clients approach their visit to Cuba with an open mind, patience, a sense of humour and an understanding of the differences in the way of life in Cuba compared to Ireland. Game Reserves & Other Outdoor Pursuits Whilst every precaution is taken by game lodges and organisers to ensure the safety of their guests, it must be accepted that there can be a small risk of danger, as one will be travelling through areas where animals wander freely. Due to the Adventure nature of some of the activities it is not uncommon for guests to be asked to sign an indemnity form on arrival at the safari lodge. Political & Safety Restrictions Hotels, Lodges & Rooms Accommodation is based on standard twin/double bedded room unless otherwise stated. Higher category rooms can be secured at many of the hotels and the applicable supplement will be advised at the time of booking. Check-in, Checkout times Please note that at most hotels and lodges check-in is not until 1400 hrs and you will be expected to vacate your room normally between 1000 and 1200 hrs - irrespective of the time that you intend to depart. If the hotel is not full then it is usually possible for early check-in or late checkout arrangements to be made locally, a charge is usually applicable.

Although there continues to be media coverage, the political situation throughout southern and east Africa continues to develop in a positive manner and people mix freely. As to personal safety, when in major cities it is sensible to take the same precautions that you would in any of the world's metropolitan areas as, unfortunately, crime exists at some level in all destinations worldwide - never leave unattended luggage in front of a hotel or in the lobby - deposit your valuables in the hotel's safe deposit box - don't stroll around the streets after dark - don't wear expensive jewellery when out walking - always lock your car doors and keep the windows closed. If you intend to travel "off the beaten track" then do seek local advice. Airport taxes In certain countries, an airport tax is payable locally on departure.

Local Assistance

Flight Information

In many of our resorts we include the service of a locally appointed agent who can provide you with local information and assist you with booking tours etc. Contact details will be provided with your tickets and holiday information.

Our packaged holiday prices are based on a choice of scheduled return flights at the best possible fare. Should the best fares not be available we will quote the next best fare available at the time of booking

Meals With few exceptions, breakfast is buffet. Lunches and dinners included in this programme are table d'hote. If you have any special dietary needs: e.g. vegetarian then please inform us at the time of booking.

. Please note that holiday quotations are based on availability at the time of quoting. Price increases may apply between quoting and booking due to seat availability. For this reason we strongly recommend early booking.

'Extras'

Weather and temperature Tables

Any incidental costs that you may incur during your stay - such as drinks, wine, laundry, telephone calls etc. - must be paid directly to the hotel or lodge on your departure.

The information on our temperature grids is supplied by local tourist offices and other sources and is given as a guide only. Many of the destinations featured in this brochure have a tropical climate where heavy rainfall and strong winds do occur at certain times of the year. World weather patterns are now becoming more erratic and unpredictable resulting in unusual rainfall, storms and floods. In certain parts of the Caribbean between July and November there is a chance that you may encounter tropical storms or even hurricanes. We cannot be held responsible for any disruption to your holiday due to unusual or bad weather conditions.

Special Requests Any special request that you may have - such as a ground floor bedroom, assistance at the airport - must be advised at the time of booking. If you require such requests to be a condition of your acceptance of this holiday and in variation to this contract, this will only be accepted if you receive written confirmation from us that such requests have been confirmed by the carrier, hotel/lodge principal.

A final word Hotel Information & Tourist Literature Unfortunately, we cannot illustrate every hotel and lodge that we are featuring, but we do have individual leaflets/brochures on many that we would be pleased to send on request. Please note, however, that we cannot take responsibility for the accuracy of descriptions contained within such publications.

Whilst every endeavour is made to ensure that your travel plans run smoothly there can be times, thankfully very infrequent, when arrangements can go askew due to local circumstances of which we are unaware and have no control over. Every effort will be made by the company and its local agents to minimise any inconvenience. Conditions of Carriage

Complaints Any Complaints you might have should be brought to the immediate attention of our local agent, and if not handled to your satisfaction should then be submitted in writing to Sunway’s office in Dublin within 28 days of your return. Please refer to sections 1314, and 15 of the Booking Form for further details.
