We Have Your Back
Has the global pandemic played a serious number on your travel plans? We understand.
Are you reluctant to even think about travel at the moment? We don’t blame you.
Would you feel more comfortable if a safari company were able to offer you a 100% money back guarantee on a cancellation? Because that is what we’re doing and we now offer full Covid-19 cancellation refunds.
We Have Updated Our Cancellation Policy
Understanding the important role played by tourism in Africa, we really want to encourage you to start making plans to return. And now is a great time to start thinking about traveling to Africa and planning the perfect safari. In order to alleviate your stress, The African Wild has changed its terms and conditions to accommodate any travelers that may be affected by the pandemic.
100% Refund on Covid-19 Cancellations
Any booking made between July 2020 to the end of December 2020 with a departure date starting in 2021, will be fully refundable (including a refund on your deposit) given that the trip is cancelled at least 40 days prior to your departure. This refund will only be applicable to an inability to travel as a result of travel bans and quarantine caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
It’s Still a Good Idea to Get Insurance
We still encourage all of our travelers to take out a comprehensive travel insurance policy that covers refunds on travel for any reason. Travel insurance companies are numerous and finding the right one can be difficult. It all depends on where you live, and often the best travel insurance is found in the very company where you already have your health insurance. However, we often recommend Amex Assurance, USA Assist, or Seven Corners. We have had positive experiences with guests using these travel insurance companies in the past and we would recommended them.
Africa is Waiting
At the end of the day it is up to you. But we are here to support you, and we want you to know that it is safe to book a safari to Africa. Not only can we assure you that all lodges are strictly sanitized, but we can also address any concerns by offering you a complete refund in the case of a Covid-19 cancellation. Give us a shout and we’ll start planning a hassle free and healthy safari.
