All bookings are made with licensed and authorized providers in Tanzania and  Kenya trading as Spanish Lions Diving & Safaris LTD. By booking a trip with us you are deemed to have agreed to these Booking Conditions (which constitutes the entire agreement between you and us) and your booking will be accepted by us on this basis. The services to be provided are those referred to in your booking confirmation invoice.

2. Validity

Booking is only valid once we send you the booking confirmation. Booking is not valid at the time of making payment. Only, once we send the booking confirmation is the booking considered a valid booking.

3. Deposit requirement

You are required to pay a deposit for your booking to be confirmed. Please note that different deposits amounts are required for selected trips.

4. Acceptance of booking and final payments

If we accept your booking we will issue a confirmation via email. A contract will exist between us from the date we issue the confirmation.

If this balance is not paid on or before the due date we reserve the right to treat your booking as cancelled.

5. Prices & surcharges

Our trip prices are subject to variable and seasonal pricing, both of which are standard practice within the travel industry.

7. Travel insurance

Travel insurance is recommended for all our travellers.

8. Acceptance of risk

You acknowledge that the nature of the trip is adventurous and participation involves a degree of personal risk. You will be visiting places where the political, cultural and geographical attributes present dangers and physical challenges greater than those present in our daily lives.

You acknowledge that your decision to travel is made in light of consideration of this information and you accept that you are aware of the personal risks attendant upon such travel.

  • due to political disputes, border closures, refusal of visas, industrial action, climate or other matters of a similar nature and any other force majeure.
  • due to an event which the Company, even with all due care, could not foresee or forestall.

10. Optional activities

Optional activities not included in the trip price do not form part of the trip or this contract. You accept that any assistance given by your group leader or local representative in arranging optional activities does not render us liable for them in any way. The contract for the provision of that activity will be between you and activity provider.
