Lew Harris Safaris


Should a hunting safari include any touring & sight-seeing plans, the client will receive an itinerary and quotation for the touring portion, once the client's touring requirements have been established. 

This itinerary can be adjusted until the client is entirely happy with the plans and all requirements are met. No adjustments to itineraries will be accepted less than 90 days prior to arrival date.


Upon written confirmation from the client that the itinerary is acceptable, the touring portion will be costed accordingly and will be charged as a lump sum covering all aspects in the itinerary. A 50% deposit of the total amount is payable upon acceptance of the final itinerary and costing. This deposit may be paid together with the hunting safari deposit payment. Provisional bookings will be made at the various destinations and with relevant service providers. 

Deposits will then be made to the various destinations and service providers secure the bookings. The balance of the touring portion is payable 90 days before the contracted starting date of the entire safari. This final payment may be paid together with the balance due for the hunting portion. 

For any bookings made within 90 days or less prior to the date of arrival, full payment is required. 

Lew Harris Safaris cannot guarantee bookings with the various travel organizations as outlined in a clients itinerary until a deposit has been received and payment is made to the relevant travel organizations.
