What is the festival’s policy on late arrivals for safaris?

Please plan on arriving at least 15 minutes before the scheduled departure time to allow for loading the van and departing promptly. The festival’s policy is to wait 5 minutes for late arrivals. At that point, the trip will move on and any late arrivals will have to catch up on their own.  Please be courteous. If you were late, the instructor may have to wait until the end of the trip to explain anything that you missed.
