Dana Tours cannot be held responsible or liable for any delays prior to departure or during the course of any tour, whether brought about by technical difficulties, strikes, adverse weather conditions or any other foreseen/unforeseen circumstances, unless such delays are directly caused by Dana Tours negligence. Expenses incurred relating to delays other than those caused by Dana Tours’ negligence are for the passenger’s account.
TRAVEL DOCUMENTS (passport, visa, health):
The onus is on each passenger to check that all travel documents are in order. This includes passport validity (minimum of 6 months after intended return date and a minimum of 2 blank pages); visa requirements; vaccinations; re-entry permits etc. With reference to visas, you may purchase a single-entry visa at the principle border entry posts at a cost of approximately (USD) $51 for bona fide tourists. You need to carry proof of accommodation and an onward return ticket. Due to the time it takes to issue visas, for groups we suggest visas to be bought in advance in your home country.
At present, some SADC member state nationals are exempt of visas for Mozambique. Dana Tours does not accept any responsibility for any consequences whatsoever resulting from a passenger’s failure to ensure that he/she has complied with these necessary requirements.
VOUCHERS AND TICKETS:
Documentation will only be prepared on receipt of full payment.
Passengers travelling with Dana Tours are required to take out comprehensive travel insurance that covers cancellation & curtailment of trip, illness, baggage loss & default. By reading these Terms & Conditions, it is assumed that the group is carrying such insurance.
