Booking Information


Footprints' adventures are coordinated and escorted by Footprints Tours.

Trips are booked and purchased through the Heming Travel Group. This agency is located at the Roseland Plaza at Guelph Line & New St., Burlington, Ontario, Canada. You can contact the office by phone at 905-639-8424 or toll free at 1-888-639-4565 or email dennis@heminggroup.com .

 

 Price is broken down into airfare and on-ground travel. The latter is constant year round but airfare may fluctuate by more than $1,000. The in-country portion of the trip includes all accommodation, travel within the countries, park fees, guide and porter fees and all meals except those in designated large cities, where activities are less structured.

There is a single supplement charge of CAD$500. However, it is only applied where doubling up is not possible. If you are booking alone, but able to double up in hotels this charge will be waived. Visas, gratuities, drinking water and discretionary expenses such as alcoholic beverages and souvenirs are not included in the price.

Currently Canadians and Americans are charged USD$50 cash each for a Kenya and a Tanzania visa for a stay of less than 30 days. At this time, the Uganda visa costs USD$30. All can be purchased with U.S. cash at the respective borders.

Participation in a trip requires a $500 non-refundable deposit on booking plus whatever airfare deposit or full payment is required. Confirmation with full and final payment is due six weeks before departure. Pricing is based on a minimum of four participants. In the event there are fewer than four, arrangements may be possible for the trip to go ahead with a surcharge on the ground portion of the trip. In the event the trip has to be cancelled the ground portion will be refunded as well as whatever portion the airline will refund. If your circumstances prevent you from participating after having committed and paid $500 will be withheld from the ground portion of the refund.

If you have any further questions regarding payment or cancellation fees please contact our agent Heming  Group. Since these trips fall into the category of ‘adventure travel', it is necessary that all participants provide proof of personal travel insurance which must include hospital and medical care locally, air evacuation and repatriation home.

Return flight from other than Toronto is by special arrangement only and may be subject to increased cost. At the time of booking you will be asked to agree to a liability disclaimer pertaining to unforeseen events which could alter arrangements during the trip. For information on particulars of the trip within Africa contact Alex Matheson by phone at 905-523-0280 or email at info@footprintstours.com.
