If we cancel your holiday, we shall offer you the choice of purchasing an alternative holiday from us of a similar standard to that originally booked if available. If the chosen alternative is less expensive than your original holiday we shall refund the difference but if it is more expensive, we shall ask you to pay the difference. Alternatively, you are entitled to a full refund of all money you have to Biiso Africa Safaris.

GORILLA Tracking PERMITS
As soon as the payment has been received, your gorilla permits are purchased. Getting a gorilla permit is not a guarantee of seeing a gorilla. However, the chances of spotting them are 99%. Local conditions sometimes mean that access to the gorillas is made impossible at short notice. We are unable to accept liability for any circumstance that might lead to gorilla viewing being canceled, whether it is the closure of the National Park or borders; absence of the gorillas; security changes. Refunds are at the discretion of the relevant authority and we cannot accept liability for them. We shall always use our maximum endeavors to obtain a refund and if a refund is paid by the relevant authority, we shall pass it on to the clients.
Upon booking your safari, you must confirm that you are in agreement with our terms and conditions and pay the appropriate deposit of 40% of the total price including the fees for the Gorilla permits. The balance should be paid before the start of the safari. Kindly note that full payment is required for bookings made within weeks of the departure.
