Booking a hunting safari is the process by which you indicate that you definitely want to hunt at a specific time and paying the hunt deposit confirms the booking.
Don't book a hunt if you are not 100% sure that you can and want to go. It's a pain in the neck for all concerned if a hunter cancels for some spurious reason and deposits have to be returned, if they are indeed refundable.
"Booking a safari isn't all that unlike contracting for a wedding. You supply the money and the main participants and somebody else will be delighted to do most of the work of putting the whole show together." Peter Hathaway Capstick
...then you are ready to relax and book your African hunt with confidence.
