CNP Safaris maintains the right to adjust the price of a tour or workshop in the event of any increase in cost, currency fluctuations, or abnormal supply prices of park fees, conservation levies, transportation costs, taxes, customs, or similar expenses. Any amended prices will be published on the product pages, and registrants will receive notifications if any changes in cost have occurred on the tour or workshop.

If you are a citizen of South Africa or one of the other 15 Southern African countries in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and plan to travel to another member state, you may be eligible for discounted rates called SADC rates. .

*Note: The rates under the PAY NOW tabs on the website, will appear in ZAR – South African Rand or USD – United States Dollar, depending on the IP address of the computer you are using. To qualify for the SADC rate or Special South African rate a valid passport must be submitted.

Payment Options


Our secure online payment system is through PayGate, and we accept most major credit cards, instant EFT and direct bank transfer payments.

Note that Paygate payments will incur an additional processing fee of 3%. 

Cancellation and Refund Policy


Unless cancellation notice is received before the balance payment date, the balance will remain due and payable. If your cancellation is received after your due date of payment, the below cancellation charges will apply.


The deposit plus 30% is forfeited if cancellation occurs between 180 and 90 days before the start date. 100% of the total package price is forfeited if cancellation occurs less than 90 days before the start date.


Please note that we do not offer refunds if you are unable to join a tour or workshop on the start date, join after the start date, or depart before the completion of the tour or workshop. We recommend that registrants file a claim with their mandatory travel insurance policy in the event of such circumstances.




It is mandatory for all those who register for the tour to have suitable travel insurance that covers the entire duration of the tour and all the activities that will be carried out. The insurance policy must include coverage for cancellation, curtailment, interruption, medical and emergency expenses (including repatriation), personal accident, injury, or death. CNP Safaris cannot be held accountable for any physical injury, loss, death, damage, or expense that may arise during the tour. Registrants are advised to take adequate insurance against loss, damage, and unforeseen expenses due to delays or alterations in air or other services, sickness, weather, strikes, war, quarantine, and other causes, personal risk, baggage, personal possessions, and photographic equipment.




Registrants are responsible for taking all necessary health precautions and consulting with their health practitioners before embarking on any safari with CNP Safaris, regardless of the destination. It is important to note that Africa is home to various tropical diseases, including malaria. Therefore, registrants should be aware of the risks and hazards associated with travelling to these areas.


Itinerary Change, Trip Delay or Trip Cancellations


CNP Safaris reserves the right to modify a tour’s dates, itinerary, allocated photographic guide, or accommodations in response to changing conditions. These are expeditions to remote regions of the world, and we may need to adjust the itinerary due to unforeseen weather conditions, lodge availability, political circumstances, and other factors beyond our control without consulting the participants. Please note that these decisions will be made in the best interests of all participants and the safety of all staff. If an itinerary change is necessary due to bad weather, road conditions, transportation delays, government intervention, sickness, or other unforeseen circumstances for which CNP Safaris or its agents cannot provide, the cost of delays or changes will not be included. Participants should understand that they have no right to a refund or other considerations in the event of these inevitable itinerary changes.


CNP Safaris reserves the right to cancel a trip before departure due to logistical reasons or if there are too few participants. A decision will be made 45 days before the scheduled departure date. However, please note that this refund policy does not cover any unforeseeable events or acts of God. It’s important to note that CNP Safaris will not be responsible for any expenses incurred by trip members while preparing for the trip, including non-refundable or penalty-carrying airline tickets, visa or passport fees, special clothing, or any other trip-related expenses.


CNP Specialist/Custom Photography Boats and Vehicles


CNP Safaris is committed to the regular maintenance and servicing of all Specialist Custom Photography boats and vehicles. However, in the event of a breakdown, it may be necessary to use standard safari vehicles and boats. By registering for the safari, participants agree to indemnify CNP Safaris against any claims that may arise from the breakdown of Custom Photographic vehicles and boats during the safari.

However, CNP Safaris does not assume any responsibility for injuries, damages, losses, accidents, delays, or irregularities that may be caused due to any defects in the vehicles or any other reasons, including the acts, defaults, or bankruptcies of any service provider involved in the tour arrangements.
