Trip Reservation

We recommend that you reserve space early to assure your preferred departure date. Our small group size means we often sell out quickly.

Please complete and sign the Reservation Form below. You may also reserve space on any trip by calling a Wild Planet Adventures specialist at 1-800-990-4376 (US & Canada) or 415-524-8610 and check availability.

A deposit of $600 per person is required to reserve your space, except Africa, Brazil and India which require non-refundable deposits of 1/3 of total trip cost. For all trips other than Africa, Brazil & India $250 of your $600 deposit is a non-refundable registration fee. The balance of fees are due no later than 90 days prior to departure (120 days prior for Holiday trips, Africa, Brazil and India.) See Method of Payment instructions and Cancellation information below this form.

Upon receipt of this registration form and your deposit, Wild Planet Adventures will reserve a space for you (based on availability), provide a link for you to download pre-departure information for your specific trip, and allow you the option to share your travels with your friends and families during your trip.

6. Flights
Flights are not included in the price but are available through a special relationship with our consolidator. All flight quotes are subject to change until issued and will include all fees as part of your total quote, although at times these fees may be charged separately. For airline tickets to be issued in conformity with the requirements of Secure Flight which has been mandated by the U.S. Department of Homeland Securityâ„¢s Transportation Security Administration and implemented by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), guests must provide their full name exactly as it appears on their government issued passport, date of birth and gender when making airline reservations. If this information is incorrect, guests may experience delays or denial when trying to board an air carrier and may also be subject to penalties. To comply with this mandate, Wild Planet Adventures will require a copy of the picture page from the guestâ„¢s valid passport prior to issuing any tickets. Any penalties imposed upon the guest or Wild Planet Adventures resulting from incorrect information will be the sole responsibility of the guest. Likewise, any additional costs incurred due to delays or denial of travel resulting from incorrect information will also be the sole responsibility of the guest. The aforementioned mandated changes are set forth in the Secure Flight Final Rule, published in the Federal Register Volume 73, Number 209. To learn more visit www.tsa.gov/SecureFlight.

7. Single Travelers:
All our trip fees are based on double occupancy. Single accommodations may be available at extra cost. Upon request, we can help single travelers find a roommate, otherwise a single supplement fee will apply. If a single room is requested, or we are unable to find a suitable roommate, you will be required to pay the single supplement. Single accommodations are not available on all trips.

8. Travel Insurance.
Travel insurance is available through our office. It is mandatory for Africa safaris, and strongly recommended for all other trips to protect you from loss of non-refundable air and trip costs in case of emergency or if you must cancel your trip. In addition, travel insurance can provide coverage for trip interruption, trip delay and protection for emergency evacuation, accident, sickness and medical expense. Wild Planet Adventures is not responsible or liable for loss, damage or theft of personal luggage and belongings, or personal injury, accident or illness. In most foreign countries, insurance coverage of personal injury, accident or illness is not available on the basis of U.S. standards. Details on how to procure travel insurance is included in your pre-departure information packet, along with a special number to contact the travel insurance company directly concerning coverage, limitations, provisions, exclusions and pre-existing conditions. In most cases travel insurance must be purchased within 21 days of making your reservation in order to cover pre-existing medical conditions.

9. Travel Documents/Vaccinations:
Customers must be in possession of valid passports and any visas, permits and certificates required for the whole of their journey or expedition and shall arrange such vaccinations as are normally recommended for the countries through which they intend to travel.

We strongly suggest all guests to check with the State Department regarding any issues of safety and security, as well as the Center for Disease Control for up-to-date health alerts. Additional sources of information are provided in our pre-departure information packets.
