In an ideal world you don’t need terms, booking- or cancellation conditions. You are booking a very special motorbike holiday with us and neither you, nor we, want any problems to occur. We will do our utmost to ensure your motorcycle holiday will be carefree. But if there happens to be a problem it is best to know where you and we stand. So always read any booking- and cancellation conditions carefully to avoid running into nasty surprises!

Ride2Roam is the brand or trade-name through which we offer the motorbike tours of Zulu Overland, PO Box 27, 7160 Grabouw, Zuid-Afrika. This means that Ride2Roam and Zulu Overland are for all purposes the same company. This means that effectively you book your tour direct with Zulu Overland and that the booking conditions from Zulu Overland are both valid and applicable for your booking.
These terms and conditions are applicable on all motorbike tours offered by, or booked with, Ride2Roam/Zulu Overland, PO Box 27, 7160 Grabouw, South Africa, from here on named ‘Zulu Overland’, ‘us’ or ‘we’. Booking your tour means accepting these conditions. Since you book with Zulu Overland in South Africa, everything concerning your tour, including these booking conditions, shall be interpreted according to the laws of the Republic of South Africa.
Booking your tour also means you also unconditionally agree that any legal disputes will only, explicitly and exclusively fall under the jurisdiction of a South African court of law. During the tour you must at all times comply with the laws, customs, foreign exchange and other regulations of the country you visit at that moment.
To join a tour you must be at least 25 years old and have a valid motorcycle driving license. If your driving license is not in English you also need to bring an international driving license. If there are additional conditions or limitations on your driving license you need to inform us when booking your tour. You also need to have the required riding experience on tarred or untarred roads as is described for the tour you book. Due to legal reasons and our indemnity we can not make any exceptions to this paragraph!
We only need your personal details and the name and date of the tour when you book your tour. Once you fill these on the online booking form, check the box that you agree to our terms and conditions and click on the send-button, your booking is made. From that moment onwards these terms and conditions fully apply to your booking. Within a couple of days we will send you an e-mail with the official confirmation of your booking and a list of the additional details we need to run your holiday to perfection. These details concern travel insurances, meal preferences etcetera.

After you received our official confirmation of your booking you can still change or add something to your booking. We will be happy to accommodate you, but have to charge an administration fee of ₤ 21.-/€ 25.- for the extra work. If you decide to change your booking to another tour and/or date, we have to consider that as making a new booking – so this constitutes a cancellation of your original tour. We will have to charge you the applicable cancellation fees. So make sure your cancellation insurance covers forced cancellations!

The published price at the moment of your booking is normally a fixed price. We won’t charge you any increases in prices, unless these are a result of changes in government taxes, entrance fees or any other fee which is determined by an official institution. These are changes and increases beyond our control.
Immediately after you receive our mail with the official confirmation of your booking, you need to pay a deposit of 20% of the tour price into the bank account of Zulu Overland in South Africa. Make sure the remainder is in our bank account no later then 29 days before the departure date of your tour (= day 1 of the day to day description). So if you book within 5 weeks before departure you need to transfer the whole amount when you book.

Note: if your payment is not in our bank account in time and in full, this constitutes a cancellation of your tour and the applicable cancellation fees will be applied.

All bank transfer fees are for your account, so when you transfer the money you have to indicate to your bank this is the case (most banks use the term ‘OUR’ for this). If you happen to forget this you need to refund us these fees in cash upon arrival. We will provide all banking details in our confirmation mail.
Zulu Overland reserves the right to cancel the tour up to 4 weeks before departure for any reason. We will fully refund all payments made to us. However the bank transfer fees and any other costs you made will not be refunded (including costs made for vaccinations, travel documents, flight tickets etc.). So once again: take out travel insurance with a good cancellation policy!

If you cancel the tour the following costs and fees apply:

  • Up to 30 days before departure: your 20% down-payment
  • Between 29 and 15 days before departure: 50% of the tour costs
  • Between 14 and 8 days before departure: 75% of the tour costs
  • 7 days or less before departure: the total tour costs

For the full duration of the tour, including extensions, a travel insurance policy is mandatory. This policy needs to include full coverage of motorbike riding with (if applicable) your pillion, any activities you plan to do and a Flying Doctor service. A good cancellation insurance is also mandatory to avoid problems in case of a cancellation. You will need to inform us about your insurance details before the tour departs.

Zulu Overland shall not be held accountable nor responsible for any accidents, illnesses, deaths, thefts or any other damage to your person or your personal effects which occur during the tour, even if this leads to shortening your tour and/or extra costs for you. For this you have your travel- and cancellation insurance. By booking your tour you waive all rights to persecute us for this, either under South African or any other international law.

Force Majeure (‘Act of God’), so unforeseen circumstances including but not limited to war, illnesses, quarantine, weather, riots and other unforeseen reasons beyond the control of Zulu Overland, may cause delays or alterations to the tour. All consequences of these are for you own account. Zulu Overland shall not be held liable in any way for any of these possible occurrences or any consequences, which may arise as a result of these. For this too by booking you waive all rights to persecute us under South African or any other international law.

You are not allowed to carry any product or produce which is illegal in the countries you visit. Also you must at all times comply with all directives from, and agreements with, the employees and representatives of Zulu Overland. If you do not comply with these booking conditions you can at all times be excluded from the tour. Zulu Overland shall not be liable for any costs and/or expenses for you resulting from exclusion as aforesaid, and you shall not be entitled to a refund or rebate of the tour price or any additional compensation in such instances.

In addition to this, Zulu Overland will charge you for all extra costs which we need to make as a direct result from this occurrence. All additional costs you need to make from this moment onwards to arrive at the destination and/or return back home will be for you own account as well.

It is possible you encounter a problem during your tour or that something works out different from your expectations. Notify your tour leader as soon as possible! He/she will do the utmost to solve your problem so it won’t bother you for the rest of the tour. If after this you still are not happy with this solution, contact us as soon as possible, preferably by e-mail. If your complaint is valid we will provide a solution to the best of our capabilities.

It is your own and sole responsibility to ensure that your driving licenses, passport, visas, health certificates, proof of vaccinations and any other required documentation are all in order for all countries visited during the tour. Zulu Overland shall not be held accountable nor responsible for any consequences, damages or claims which result from not complying with this.
