Passports, Visas and other travel papers

  • It is the client’s soles responsibility to ensure that passports, visas, health certificates, proof of vaccinations and any other documentation required are all in order.

  • GreenHippo Travels cannot be held responsible for any consequences, damages or claims if the client does not attend correctly to the client’s documentation and related matters prior to commencement of the tour.



Every effort is made to ensure that the safari vehicles are provided in a roadworthy condition but no liability can be accepted for a puncture, breakdown, damage or delay as a result of the poor road conditions.



It is a privilege to see animals in their natural habitat but we cannot guarantee the spotting or viewing of a specific animal. You must take caution when viewing wild, keep a minimum distance and carefully follow the instructions given by your tour guide or ranger.



Complaints must be reported immediately to the GreenHippo Travels head office and to the supplier of the service, who will do their utmost best to resolve the matter. If the problem is not solved to your satisfaction, your complaint should be reported in writing, not later than 2 weeks after completion of your tour.



Whilst GreenHippo Travels will exercise utmost care in dealing with you as our esteemed guest and your belongings, we cannot be responsible for loss or damage of personal belongings, personal injury or death. It is therefore mandatory to have a comprehensive travel insurance when traveling.



GreenHippo Travels reserves the right to use any photographs and videos taken during tours for marketing or any other advertising material.


Force Majeure

Unforeseen circumstances including but not limited to war, mechanical breakdowns, weather, riots and other unforeseen reasons beyond the control of GreenHippo Travels may cause delays or alterations to the tour. GreenHippo Travels shall not be held liable in any way for any of these possible occurrences or any consequences, which may arise as a result of this.


Change in rates

We reserve the right to make changes and adjustments to our rates at any time. In the event of a change in government taxes, concession fees, wildlife management fees or others, we reserve the right to pass these on to our clients, even if the trip is already fully or partly paid for.
