It is the sole responsibility of the client to obtain a visa(s) required for entry into South Africa and arrive at the port of entry with the correct legal documents required by law.

This includes a valid passport that has at least two (2) blank pages for stamps and does not expire within six (6) months of your date of departure from the country; valid visa and certificate of vaccinations if required; and an unabridged birth certificate for children 18 years and younger if required.



The safety of clients is a priority of Pure Diamond Tours but it is your responsibility to adhere to the rules and regulations of the country you are visiting and specifically the area that you are visiting. This includes rules and regulations pertaining to safety on safari tours where you will encounter wild animals and participating in outdoor activities where there is a degree of risk for injury and loss of life.

You are responsible for ensuring your safety and well-being in transit to tour destinations, including wearing a seatbelt; exploring tourist attractions, including staying with the tour group and not being separated; and at your accommodation establishment, including avoiding drunkenness, lewd behaviour and general misbehavior that could result in you being arrested or harmed.


It is your responsibility to familiarise yourself with health warnings pertaining to the country in general and specifically to the tour destinations. This includes regions in that are medium-to-high risk malaria areas.

It is strongly recommended that you take anti-malaria tablets if you are travelling to a malaria area in Africa.

Ensure that that you and minors in your care are up-to-date with the required travel vaccinations.

It is your responsibility to disclose the age of each child in the travelling group to the Pure Diamond Tours agent and confirm that he/she is the appropriate age for tour accommodation. Pure Diamond Tours cannot be held liable for an accommodation establishment refusing entry to an under-aged child where a child policy is strictly enforced.

Pure Diamond Tours reserves the right to request a copy of a birth certificate for any child in the tour group who is confirmed to be 12 years or younger.

The South African Department of Home Affairs has strict requirements that govern children travelling through South African ports of entry. These requirements differ depending on whether a child is travelling with both parents, one parent or with a legal guardian.

It is your responsibility to have in your possession the correct legal documents required to enter South Africa with a child that is 18 years and younger. This responsibility is applicable not only for entry into South Africa but any country in Africa that you will visit as part of your tour.

If you cannot produce the correct legal documents for a child on arrival at any port of entry, the Department of Home Affairs states they reserve the right to prohibit entry. Pure Diamond Tours, its owner, employees, agents and affiliates cannot be held liable if any member of a travel group is denied entry into a country due to not being able to produce the correct legal travel documents.

Pure Diamond Tours is informed by the recommendations of the Field Guides Association of South Africa (FGASA) that (1) children 6 years and younger are not permitted on an open safari vehicle for game drives and (2) the minimum age for a guided bush walk is 16 years and older.

It is your responsibility to notify the Pure Diamond Tours, Tour agent of any child in the travel group who will be participating in daily safari tours and confirm whether he/she is of the right age to be allowed on the open safari vehicle for daily game drives and join the guided bush walks.



Pure Diamond Tours, its owner, employees, agents and affiliates cannot be held liable for delayed flights or transfers that negatively affect a tour booked through the company. Suppliers that provide transfer services for our tours adhere to strict departure and arrival times, and may be forced to leave without a client(s) who has been delayed enroute to the collection point.

The client is liable for the additional cost in this case if Pure Diamond Tours needs to organise a private transfer or book an extra day to make up for time lost on the tour.

It’s strongly recommended that you phone the Pure Diamond Tours agent a day prior to departure to confirm your pick-up time. Likewise, the Pure Diamond Tours agent will notify you of a change in the collection time caused by unforeseen circumstances.


It is strongly advisable that you take into account unforeseen delays that may affect onward travel. This includes traffic congestion, roadworks and vehicle breakdowns that would result in the transfer vehicle arriving later than expected at the drop-off point on the last day of a tour.

It’s strongly recommended that you book your connecting flight(s) for the day after the tour ends and book accommodation that night close to the airport from which you will be departing.


Pure Diamond Tours, the owner, employees, agents and affiliates will be excused for circumstances beyond their control that result in a tour being delayed or cancelled. This ranges from natural disasters including extremely bad weather and fires; to political unrest or instability including riots and violent protests; and air, cruise or ground travel disasters.

It is your responsibility to notify the Pure Diamond Tours agent and confirm in writing any changes you personally make to the itinerary whilst on tour. You are liable for any cost(s) incurred for changes made. If you choose to forfeit an activity such as a daily safari tour or an excursion that is specified in the itinerary and has been paid for in advance, Pure Diamond Tours will not provide you with a refund.

Any changes you would like made to the tour itinerary must be discussed and agreed upon with the Pure Diamond Tours agent and confirmed in writing. Pure Diamond Tours will endeavour to accommodate changes where possible but only if advanced notice is given and agreed upon, and reserves the right to adjust the final tour price to oblige such changes.
