Corona and other travel information
Travel conditions – Don’t let Corona spoil your vacation plans
We receive a lot of questions from travelers about the travel options to our destinations. The news follows at a rapid pace and not all information that is distributed is always correct or complete. We are in constant contact with our local partners to provide our customers with the correct information and advice.
The countries in Africa often know better how to act than the Netherlands for which this is a new situation with viruses such as Ebola. All our destinations have strict control upon entry. Everywhere body temperature is measured and persons who are suspected are extensively examined, as are strict hygiene protocols.
What happens if there is a travel advice (only necessary travel) for the areas you will be visiting during your trip.
Color orange, (only necessary travel) on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. https://www.nederlandwereldwijd.nl/reizen/reisadviezen. If, from 3 weeks before the start of your trip, in the areas to be visited you are advised to travel alone, we will consult with you. You can cancel your trip free of charge or change it free of charge to a departure up to and including 31 December 2022. If you choose a different travel period, higher or lower prices may apply for that date. You will get the difference back or you may have to pay extra.
What if the circumstances change during your trip?
In the unlikely event that circumstances change during your trip, we will adjust your trip free of charge where necessary.
What happens if the travel advice changes during the trip and you have to be repatriated?
If the Ministry of Foreign Affairs deems it necessary to repatriate travelers, we will arrange this for you and bear all additional costs that the repatriation entails. This only applies if you have booked the entire trip (a package holiday) with us, so both the flights and the accommodations, etc. If you have booked the flights yourself and only the accommodations with us, the repatriation costs are for your own account.

Indications of prices when traveling on the website
Because all our trips are tailor-made, it is not possible for us to immediately assign an exact price to the trips. The sample tours on our website are also from prices. These can still be adjusted as desired. The price ultimately depends on many factors, such as the number of people, your travel period, the type of accommodation you want to stay in, the number of excursions you want to make, etc. When you contact us, we will be happy to make a customized proposal , with the exact travel sum. Do you already have a budget in mind? Then we turn it around and are happy to look at the possibilities for you, taking into account your budget. For example, if there are special wishes, we will include these in your travel program. In addition, you do not have to worry about unexpected surcharges after a quotation, we already take this into account when compiling the quotation.
No departure dates for the mentioned trips
Because all our trips are tailor-made, there are no fixed departure dates. In principle, your journey can start every day. As long as a flight is available on the desired dates, you can decide when you leave.
