Cancellation and Refund Policy
We have all been through turbulent times in 2020. Fortunately, the worst part of it appears to be past us and the global tourism industry is on the mend. You can’t imagine how happy we are to see you again on our magical Tanzania!
We have realized that the Kilimanjaro Certificate Celebration after Kilimanjaro Summit including the Songs are missed dearly.
We understand that booking a trip and sending money to Africa may seem somehow risky. Understandably, there are many concerns to keep in mind: what will happen if the new restrictions are put? what if my flight is cancelled, and I miss the expedition dates? What if I catch COVID-19 and am not able to travel?
Eastland Adventures have answers for all of these questions. All tour packages are financially risk-free for our customers.
Available options if you need to cancel a trip to Tanzania
If you book your Kilimanjaro tour or Tanzania Safari or Zanzibar holiday with Eastland Adventures and for some reasons you are unable to travel, the following options are available:
- You may freely change the dates of your Kilimanjaro Tour/Tanzania Safari. Eastland Adventures offers flexibility for our clients – if you have an unfortunate hold-up to your travel plans, you may reschedule your trekking/safari dates for another time. The exception here is if you decide to reschedule your hike/safari in less than 48 hours before the scheduled departure time. With such short notice we would have organized supplies for the trip and paid park entry fees.
- Lifetime deposits. Eastland Adventures allows indefinite holds on your deposit; and you will be able to use it for any trip with us in the future. This rule applies without reservation for all our Kilimanjaro Tours and Tanzania Safaris.
- Transferability: You can arrange with any friends or relatives whom you know will be coming for tour in Tanzania and let them use your 10% on your behalf.
- Cancellation Duration: Cancellations 5 weeks or earlier before the planned tour date are FREE (Exclude transaction charges). For later cancellations we keep a fee of 10 % of the tour price or use it in the future for any trip in Tanzania.
