Changes Made by Shrike:

We are 100% committed to operating trips as planned, but if it becomes clear that we cannot operate an itinerary safely, or that the trip will not offer experiences that meet our Shrike standards, we will cancel or adjust the itinerary as needed. The unique appeal of our trips is the exclusive nature of hand-picked accommodations, which also means that occasionally one of them may be fully booked when you wish to visit. In which case, we will either reorder the itinerary or we will [if we are able to do so] offer you an alternative safari of equivalent or closely similar standard and price at no extra cost or recommend similar accommodation—there are, literally, scores of exquisite places to choose from...
