Frequently Asked Questions

What is Yacht Week East Africa?

Yacht Week East Africa is a sailing event that celebrates East African culture. After two days of exploring on land, you will practically live on a yacht for a week and explore beautiful islands located in East Africa, all while fully experiencing East African culture. You will share your yacht with other great people, have food prepared for you, and indulge in your favorite drinks with a soundtrack that you select playing in the background. ***Please note that Yacht Week East Africa is not associated with any other yachting events taking place in other regions of the world. ***

What type of yachts are available? How many people will be on each yacht?

We will use 40-55 foot catamarans that have 4-6 rooms. Each room has one double bed that sleeps two people. Therefore, there will be 8-12 guests on each yacht. There will also be a skipper and cook on each yacht.

Can you elaborate on the “tentative” itinerary?

While we expect to maintain our established itinerary, we reserve the right to change routing and/or the order of events in the event of unforeseen circumstances such as weather conditions. Any changes will be communicated to guests as early as possible.  

How do I reserve my spot?

Select the appropriate options above and click "Book Now." You will then be able to make a $500 deposit that will reserve your spot. Afterwards, there will be 6 monthly auto- payments to the same method of payment.

What is your roommate policy? 

I have a group that will be booking together, how do I ensure that we are on the same yacht? Once you’ve reserved your spot, we’ll pair you with a roommate and a yacht crew. If you have your own crew, just have everyone book as soon as possible then email us at info@blacktravel.club to submit the names of the people in your crew. We’ll then make sure you are all on the same yacht.

The deposit is non-refundable after 7 days from booking.  A full refund, (less the deposit), is possible up until 120 days before the start of the event. Email us at info@blacktravel.club if you need to cancel. Alternatively, you can transfer your reservation to another person.

Cancellations 

Initial deposits made with Booking Agent are non-refundable after 7 days from payment. All payments thereafter are non-refundable, but bookings may be transferred to another individual on a case-by-case basis at least 61 days prior to departure. 


A revision fee of $125 per person will be charged for any alteration or revision made to a confirmed reservation once final documents have been issued. No changes are permitted whatsoever within 30 days of tour departure; any change requested during this time will be treated as a cancellation, and new services provided subject to revision.

Booking Agent reserves the right to cancel all or a portion of a trip for force majeure or any other circumstances beyond our control and, in the event of such cancellation, full or partial refunds, if any, will be at Booking Agent’s sole discretion. We also reserve the right to cancel any trip if sign-up is inadequate to make the trip economically feasible for us to operate, and in this event, we give a full refund of the trip price. However, Booking Agent is not responsible for additional expenses incurred by you in preparing for the trip (e.g., non-refundable air tickets, visa fees if applicable, gear or medical expenses).

Booking Agent and associated companies reserve the right to take photographs during the operation of a tour and may use the same for promotional purposes. By reserving a tour with Booking Agent, tour participants agree to allow their images to be used for the purpose stated.
