You will be invoiced upon making a reservation and full payment is due 90 days prior to the first land day of the trip. If the balance has not been received by that date, we shall be entitled in its discretion to treat your reservation as canceled, and consequently to forfeit such part of the advance payment as determined solely by Barking Zebra.

The following forms of payment are accepted:

– Check payable to Barking Zebra Adventures and mailed to our U.S. office (amount in U.S. Dollars)

The trip price is based on sharing the room at the lodge and in Kilimanjaro tents with another fellow trekker. If you are a solo traveler and would like to share a room/tent with another trekker, we will make every effort to pair you up with a person of the same gender.
All solo travelers will be charged the single supplement fee; however, if we can match you with a roommate, we will refund you the supplement fee.
