How we use this information
Safari arrangements: Information provided by you during the enquiry, reservation and confirmation process is essentially used to make safari arrangements on your behalf.

We do not stipulate or in any way control the further usage of information provided to these contractors.
Internal contacts data base: Your contact details may be used by our company to update you on information that we believe will be of interest to you personally. This information is sent to you by your primary contact within the company, usually your consultant, on an ad hoc but fully authorised basis only or by newsletter which you can unsubscribe yourself from.
Testimonials and references: In cases where we receive feedback from a client that we believe would be of value to our visitors, we use anonymous quotes in testimonials only once permission has been obtained from the client. Many of our relationships with clients are personal and result in a willingness on their part to provide future references to prospective clients. We provide the contact details of these referees on a one-to-one basis with prospective clients and with the express permission of these referees only.
