a dangerous or hazardous nature, therefore, any Client undertaking such an
expedition assumes a dangerous risk which includes a greater scope of risk than
an ordinary risk. The safari reservation dates can not be confirmed until the
full amount of the nonrefundable deposit (50% of the daily rates) has been
received by Red Ivory Safaris. Red Ivory Safaris retains the sole right
to accept or refuse proposed reservation dates. The non-refundable deposit (50%
of the daily rates), required to confirm the reservation dates, will be applied
to the total cost of the safari. Payment of the balance, the remaining 50% of
the daily rates, is due not later than 90 days prior to the commencement of the
safari. Prior to departure from the hunting, safari or adventure venue, Client

for trophy fees and all additional costs that have been incurred (any
additional expense or service not defined by the company as included).
Red Ivory Safaris regards only the following as acceptable forms of payment (in
US $): bank transfers that have been received prior to Client’s departure for
the hunting, safari or adventure venue, traveler's checks or cash. Wounded game
which is not recovered is considered as hunted and is subject to payment of the
listed trophy fee. The possibility to hunt another specimen is dependent upon
approval by the Professional Hunter. All prices are in United States Dollars
and are subject to change without notice.

Refunds, due to cancellation, will only be given on the amount in excess of the non-refundable deposit, which has not been previously paid to third parties, before the refund deadline, ninety (90) days prior to the commencement of the safari, after which time no refund will be made on any part of the amount received. Should occurrences, unrelated to Red Ivory Safaris, affect the scheduling of the safari, all attempts will be made to adapt to the circumstances of the Client, but no refund will be given if the safari can not include the number of hunting days purchased. The hunting safari may be postponed only if the company consents in writing, Red Ivory Safaris reserves the right to issue a limited time period in which the safari must be completed.

Obtaining any necessary visa is the sole responsibility of the Client. Visa requirements vary from country to country. If you so desire please ask about the Travel Agents that we personally use.
Red Ivory Safaris strongly recommends personal trip cancellation insurance, as well as travel accident and baggage insurance. If the Client desires insurance which provides protection against financial loss, it must be taken independently. Red Ivory Safaris does not provide trip cancellation or any other type of insurance whatsoever on behalf of the Client. However we do recommend SCI’s travel insurance at www.huntandtravel.com You must be a member of SCI to partake of this insurance package. Once Red Ivory Safaris has delivered the Client’s trophies to the appropriate third party, taxidermist or shipping agent, it no longer assumes any responsibility whatsoever for its damage or loss.
