Once we have established an itinerary that works, we secure these services with a nonrefundable deposit of usually 25% of the trip cost—sometimes it can be more depending on what lodges are being used. For most trips, the final payment becomes due 90 days before departure. Payment can be made by credit card, check, or wire transfer. It is important to note that, as fully-fledged members of the Travel Consumer Restitution Corporation, we deposit your funds into a Trust account from which we pay all the service providers, thereby protecting you against any potential insolvency.
