Our Team is prepared to book your reservation. The last payment is expected as shown on your schedule. You should make all payments on schedule and as per the guidelines that we give you.

We strongly recommend purchasing a travel protection plan to cover all non-refundable trip expenses, trip delay, and interruption with return transportation, and a medical evacuation policy. Travel insurance is available through third-party travel insurance companies, and limits vary by insurer and policy purchased. Insurance will cover most losses, but coverage may vary. No representation or description of the insurance made by our staff constitutes a binding assurance or promise about the insurance.

At the time of reservation, you must report to IntelSafari any special needs while on tour.

IntelSafari does not provide personal services (such as pushing a wheelchair, assisting with walking, moving, or assembling mobility equipment, etc.), and IntelSafari does not provide individual assistance to a vacation participant for walking, dining, getting on and off coaches, trains, cruise ships, and other vehicles, or other personal needs. A qualified and physically able companion should accompany travelers who need such assistance.
In the event you fail to notify IntelSafari at the time of the reservation of any special needs or disabilities requiring special attention, IntelSafari reserves the right to cancel your booking or terminate your vacation at its sole discretion if your particular needs or disabilities are not suitable for the holiday, pose a threat to the health and safety of other participants or IntelSafari staff, or if you are not traveling with a companion who provides all the assistance you require.

Not all sightseeing stops/sites, transportation, hotels, lodges, and other components of your vacation are accessible for people with special needs or are required to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and some locations and sightseeing activities require extensive standing, sitting climbing stairs, or walking-sometimes on unpaved or cobblestone streets. IntelSafari will not refund or cover any cost or expense incurred for any missed activities due to a participant's inability to participate with the group entirely. The ADA is only applicable within the United States, and facilities for disabled individuals are limited outside its borders. Most transportation services, including touring motorcoaches, are not equipped with wheelchair ramps.
If you cannot authorize your medical attention and treatment, you authorize us or our subcontractors or agents to confirm medical attention and treatment on your behalf. You agree to hold harmless and release them or us from any liability for medical attention authorized by them or us on your behalf. We assume no liability regarding the provision of medical care or evacuation services.

We reserve the right to cancel or postpone the tour for reasons beyond our control, including any event named in the Risks of Travel section below. You may transfer your booking to a later date, or we will provide you with a future travel credit (FTC) for some or all monies you paid toward a forthcoming Tour arranged by us during the 18 months after we notify you of the postponement or cancellation.
If you choose to transfer your booking, the new tour will be subject to the terms and conditions of this agreement. Except as outlined in the preceding paragraph, we will not be liable for any other costs, damages, or refunds of any kind for any loss, delay, inconvenience, disappointment, or expense whatsoever.
