All prices are based on prevailing at the time of publication of the price list. This can change without notice. However, once a holiday has been paid for we will guarantee the price unless it is subsequently affected by Government action or other influence beyond the control of Genau Guides clients will be informed as quickly as possible in case of this eventuality.

Genau Guides very seldom will reroute Safaris. This is due to room availability and Special Campsite availability. When this happens clients will be informed as far in advance as possible. Genau Guides and its agents act only as the agents of the passenger in all matters relating to accommodation, meals, tours, and transportation of any type, and shall not be held responsible for inconvenience or commission of service, injury, delay, loss, or damage from any cause in any manner, however, including weather, machinery breakdown, labor disputes, civil disturbances, and government orders. Genau Guides (T) Ltd is insured against legal liabilities arising from injuries that may be incurred by the passenger in its own vehicles, subject only to the jurisdiction of the courts of Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, and Ethiopia.
From wild animals is minimal on safari as most creatures avoid direct contact with humans unless threatened. Respect the advice of your guide who is experienced with the environment and has your best interest and safety at heart. Believe it or not, the most dangerous animal you are likely to encounter in Tanzania is the mosquito!
There is a variety of food. You’ll find international cuisine in hotels, restaurants, and lodges. On the coast, fish, and lobsters with a local dish such as Biryanis and meat or fish curries. Specialties: Spices tea or coffee and “Halua”, a sweet dessert with almonds. Drink only boiled or bottled water.
Genau Guides: We recommend that you have fully comprehensive personal insurance for any and every eventuality!!
