Let's Talk Fitness

 In the itinerary, this symbol indicates 2+ hours of walking, often across uneven ground and in areas of high altitude or heat and humidity.

At Bunnik Tours we don’t put specific age limits on our tours, but we also recognise some travellers may find our itineraries challenging. 

We have a duty of care to all tour participants and the tour guides, so we do impose a firm policy on the level of fitness required by all our clients to attempt to ensure your safety and the safety of other travellers on our tours.

At Bunnik Tours our goal is for all our travellers to enjoy their tour, not struggle through it! Which is why we want to work with you to ensure you are on the best possible trip for your fitness level. We do reserve the right to refuse bookings if we feel that the requirements of the tour are too demanding. 

Bunnik Tours are for independently minded travellers with good levels of mobility.

  1. Generous amounts of free time
  2. Lots of walking, minimum of 2-3 hours on uneven surfaces without the use of any walking aid, on any given day

In some regions travellers can also expect:

  1. Long days of travelling, at times on dirt and gravel roads in Africa
  2. Extended periods at high altitude (3,000-4,000 metres) in South America & Africa
  3. Extended periods of walking/hiking through humid forest areas in Africa & Central America
  4. Limited medical facilities in remote areas

  1. Be able to walk for a minimum of 2-3 hours on uneven surfaces without the use of any walking aid, on any given day

Bunnik Tours generally does not accept bookings for single travellers 80 years of age and over without a travelling companion. Neither our Tour Director nor your fellow travellers are equipped to act as a carer. 

Passengers must inform us and the service provider of any medical conditions which may affect your ability to participate in the tour. 

At our discretion we, including the service provider, can exclude you from a tour or in any activity if we consider that you are unable to safely participate in that tour or activity or if we consider your participation may place the safety of other guests at risk. 

We reserve the right to cancel your booking if any changed or non-disclosed medical conditions mean that you will require special assistance from our personnel which we cannot reasonably provide. We strongly suggest that your travel insurance policy includes comprehensive cancellation coverage.

We will not be liable for any damage, injury, death or loss of any kind arising from your failure to fully disclose relevant medical information or resulting from any pre-existing medical condition.
