Essential Namibia Birding Tour Pricing

*Pricing Notes and More Details:

 

 

  • Trip Priced Fixed in ZAR: Trip price is fixed in South African Rand (ZAR). Pricing in US Dollars, GBP and other currencies should be considered estimated from July of 2015. Final invoice will be based upon exchange rates charged by our banks about 100 days before the start of the trip. 

  • Bank Fees: We do not charge bank fees for wire transfers for clients paying into our accounts in the United States, the United Kingdom and/or Canada.

  • Note on Meal Inclusion: Meals include three meals per day during any full day of the trip. The arrival day does include lunch and supper, as most flights arrive in the morning. The departure day includes only breakfast, as most flights leave in the morning.

  • Note on Beverage Inclusion: Most of our meals are provided by the lodges, and we follow their practices in providing beverages at meal time. Most beverages are your choice and are an additional expense which you pay to the restaurant directly. We provide water at the table for supper. We also provide bottled water during the birding day. 

  • Group Size: We anticipate a group of 6 to 8 participants, and pricing is based upon this group size.

 

Optional Costs for Booking the Trip:

 

Single Room Supplement: ZAR 7822 ($630 USD*, or £400 GBP*) is the price we charge for the additional cost of anyone not sharing a room with another birder (and/or a spouse). If you want a single room, please let us know. We are often able to find a roommate for those wanting to share a room with a person of the same sex.

 

Pre-Paid Tipping for Meals/Lodging: Gratuities for drivers, hotel staff, restaurants, etc. are included on this tour. However, this does not include your trip leader/bird guide. If, therefore, you feel that he/she has given you excellent service, it is entirely appropriate to tip him/her.

 

Notes on Other Tour Costs: Exclusions: 

  • You will need to pay for any flight costs involved in this trip. 

    • This will include flights to the city at the start of the trip (either Windhoek in Namibia or Livingstone in the Zambia) and then your return flight at the end of the trip. Trips rotate starting points and ending points. Half the trips start in Windhoek and end in Livingstone.  And the other half the trips start in Livingstone and end in Windhoek. As most clients fly to Johannesburg in South Africa first, these flights end up costing about the same. If this confusing, please contact us, as we are always glad to provide free advice on minimizing your flight cost.

  • The tour fee does not include taxes/fees for entering or exiting these countries, telephone calls, laundry and other items of a personal nature.

  • Tips for birding guides are not included in the tour price.
