Terms and conditions

Payment terms

  • When booking a hunt the customer must pay a deposit of USD 180 in order to confirm the buy and effectuate the booking.
  • A deposit of 30% of the total price must be paid within 10 days from the initial booking or the order will be cancelled without any refund of the paid USD 180.
  • The remaining balance is due 60 days before departure unless otherwise agreed.
  • Reminders are charged a fee of USD 25 and the due amount will be subject to an interest rate of 1,5% per started month.
  • Late payment gives Unique Hunting the right to cancel the order and keep any already paid deposit.
  • Cancellation can be made until 45 days before departure, but does not entail refund of deposit. In some cases a paid deposit can, however, be deducted when rebooking.
  • Cancellation less than 45 days before departure or termination of the hunt before time does not exempt the customer from paying the full price of the hunt. If war, natural disasters or similar situations that makes the hunt impossible occurs less than 14 days before the hunt, the entire paid amount will, however, be refunded.
  • All prices can be changed at any time and are valid for the current season only.

  • Trophies shot or wounded other than those agreed upon in the order confirmation can be required paid for directly to the outfitter at the destination before departure.

Alterations

Unique Hunting can provide information about the typical course of a hunt, but it is up to the professional hunter at the destination to plan the details in order to achieve the best hunting result. No claims can be made against Unique Hunting if the experience is not as expected.

If notified well in advance, the outfitter might be able to take into account special wishes from the hunter. Changes requested by the customer may imply additional payment.

Information on accommodation and food is with the reservation that the hunting of certain animals may require sleeping and eating elsewhere than in the specified camp.

Requests for special food and beverages (e.g. in case of allergies or diabetes) must be made well in advance. Substantially higher expenses may require additional payment.

Requests for activities other than those specified in the order confirmation must be discussed with Unique Hunting well in advance and may require additional payment.

Changing which hunters participate in a purchased hunt requires approval from Unique Hunting and additional charges may apply for the administration involved.

Trophies

After shooting the animals specified in the order confirmation, there might be time left before departure, which the outfitter might offer can be spend hunting other animals (paid for directly to the outfitter) if Unique Hunting is informed well in advance what animals these should be and the required permits to hunt these can be obtained.

Should the hunter contrary to expectations not shoot all animals specified in the order confirmation, any paid trophy fees for the remaining animals will be refunded (however not according to the list price, as the price paid often includes a discount).

Wounded animals will be hunted until they are killed. Should a wounded animal escape, the professional hunter will do everything in his power to find and kill the animal together with the hunter. If the professional hunter finds evidence (such as blood, bone splinters or hair) that the animal is wounded, a trophy fee is to be paid no matter if the animal is found or not.

Unique Hunting recommends letting First Class Trophy handle trophies when possible. If another taxidermist is to be used, this must be told at least three months prior to departure.

Transportation of trophies including export/import is at the hunter’s expense and is his or her responsibility unless responsibility is transferred to e.g. a taxidermist. Unique Hunting is not liable and will not give compensation for any delay or loss of trophies e.g. caused by legislation or transportation problems.

Hunters from countries subject to the CITES treaty (a.k.a. the Washington Convention) must bring a copy of the original CITES permit. Unique Hunting can advise on obtaining the right permits. Obtaining them is, however, the hunter's responsibility. A CITES permit is needed for hunting e.g. lion, leopard, elephant, crocodile, hippo, rhino and all cats and primates.

Weapons

Unique Hunting is to be informed well in advance whether you wish to rent weapons or bring along your own weapons, and in both cases which weapons. Unique Hunting’s guidance on choice of weapon and caliber should be followed.

Regulations regarding transport of weapons vary from country to country and airline to airline. E.g. a EU firearms passport is required when traveling to or staying in a EU country.

Unique Hunting advises on regulations regarding transport, import and use of firearms and ammunition in the relevant country, but the responsibility is always the hunter’s. When a hunt is ordered, Unique Hunting will send further information about the relevant country.

Safety
