DISCLAIMER

Safaris in Africa entail a certain degree of risk. We advise our guests to always consult their guide before undertaking any activity that may bring them into an area populated by wild animals. Please be aware that these safaris may take guests into close contact with wild animals. Attacks by wild animals are rare, but no safari into the African Wilderness can guarantee that this will not occur. Neither Mara West Safaris, nor its employees, nor its agents can be held responsible for any injury or incident on the safari.

Mara West Safaris helps facilitate the safari experience by acting as a booking agency, easing the booking process for our client. We recommend accommodations featured on our website, however we are not  owners of these camps or lodges. Mara West Safaris will book suggested or preferred accommodation choices selected by our clients outside of our accommodation catalog, however, we cannot be held responsible for any unsatisfactory outcomes from these choices.

This agreement is made subject to and shall be governed and construed according to the laws of the country in which the safari took place. Neither Mara West Safaris, nor any person acting for, through or on behalf of the company shall be liable for any loss or damage whatsoever and, without restricting the generality of the foregoing, shall particularly not be responsible for loss or damage arising from any errors or omission contained in any brochure or other literature, late or non-confirmation or acceptance of bookings, loss or damage caused by delays, sickness, injury or death whether occasioned by negligence or not.
While we operate successful trips throughout the year, some changes may occur in our itineraries due to inclement weather affecting transportation routes or camps closing down for renovation or camps being unavailable for one reason or another. Mara West Safaris, without notice, will do its best to find equivalent camp accommodations that suit your package and cannot offer any refunds to that effect.

In addition, Mara West Safaris shall have the right at any time at its discretion to cancel any tour or the remainder thereof or make any alteration in route, accommodation, price or other detail and in the event of any tour being rendered impossible, illegal, or inadvisable by the weather, acts of God, strikes, war, civil disorder, government interference, acts of terror, or any other causes whatsoever. The extra expense incurred as a result thereof shall be the responsibility of the clients.

The company may, at its discretion and without liability or cost to itself, at any time cancel or terminate the client’s booking and in particular without limiting the generality of the foregoing, it shall be entitled to do so in the event of illness or the illegal or incompatible behavior of the client, who shall in such circumstances not be entitled to any refund.
