3. Your safety
Your safety is our primary concern. Most visits to Uganda are trouble-free. However, both countries have a history of political instability and, in some areas, that instability is ongoing. We are aware that from time to time some governments advise against non-essential travel to some parts of Uganda. Therefore, we advise you to check the latest travel advice issued by the government in your home country before booking your trip. We are happy to answer any queries you may have. For many of our visitors, the opportunity to come into close contact with a diverse range of wildlife is one of their main reasons for visiting Uganda. Attacks by wild animals are rare but we cannot guarantee that they will not occur.

We accept no liability to you, in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty or otherwise, for any indirect or consequential losses suffered by you or any member of your group arising out of or in connection with your booking with us. Our total liability to you and each member of your group will in no circumstances exceed, in aggregate, the total amount paid by you to us in connection with your booking (excluding the cost of any gorilla or other wildlife permits). We will have no liability whatsoever to any third parties. Nothing in these terms and conditions limits our liability for death or personal injury (when caused by our negligence), fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.
