All applications for provisional or confirmed reservations are to be made by the Client by way of e-mail addressed or Phone call to Serengeti Wilderness Calls.
No reservation will be deemed made unless acknowledged and accepted in writing by Serengeti Wilderness Calls. Provisional reservations will only be held for 14 days, after which the booking will be released. Please ensure the following information is included:

  • Date and time of arrival
  • Number of people and room requirement
  • Full names of client, and ages of children in the group (if applicable)
  • Any special requirements

Reservations cancelled are charged as below:
