The roads in Tanzania / what happens in the event of a breakdown:
The roads in Tanzania are of lesser quality than in Europe. As a result, the vehicles have a lot to endure. The chance of a breakdown is therefore real. Replacement transport or a garage is not or hardly present. African Overland Ltd has an extensive network and own transport managers on site, so a breakdown is often solved within a short time. In the unlikely event that it takes longer, all passengers who have not been able to make a game drive will be reimbursed for the entire travel day.
After confirming your booking you will receive an invoice stating the details of your booking. The down payment is 50% of the travel sum and must be paid by return. You must pay the remaining amount no later than 65 days before departure.
Two weeks before departure you will receive all travel documents: vouchers, e-tickets, luggage tags and leaflets (if available).
You are obliged to take an insured trip. We strongly recommend cancellation insurance. We can help you with this.
You are responsible for obtaining your necessary visa. Your passport must be valid for at least 6 months on arrival in Tanzania. In addition to the passport, you must be in possession of a valid visa. You can request these at the Tanzanian consulate before departure or upon arrival in Tanzania. The costs are 50 $ or 50 € if you buy the visa on arrival.
Please check the names of the travelers on the invoice carefully. If a name needs to be changed after 3 days after receipt of invoice, we are forced to charge € 125, – change costs.
