How do I book a spot on your tour?
Our photo tour pages have detailed itineraries, costs, species lists, policies, terms & conditions. You should read them carefully, and then contact us via our Contact form or email us at 

What are the payment and cancelation terms? 
A ‘non-refundable’ deposit of USD 1000 of the Tour fee as a booking amount to reserve your spot
• The remaining balance is due in full 90 days before the start of the tour. If you would like to pay the remaining balance in installments, please let us know.
• All figures in USD per person
• Failure to make payments within this timeline could result in tour cancellation.
• A deposit is your commitment to joining the workshop. These deposits don’t typically sit in an account, they are used to cover initial expenses for the workshop like hotel reservations, park permits/fees, and guided tour deposits. Due to these expenses, deposits are non-refundable and tour payment made is subject to a cancellation fee.

If canceled by you? 
More than 60 days before the start of the tour: Refund of workshop payment (not including deposit), less $100 convenience fee. 
60 – 45 days before the start of the tour: Refund of 50% of workshop payment (not including deposit), less $199 convenience fee.
Less than 45 days before the start of the tour: No refunds will be given, and all payments will be forfeited. Full payment is required no later than 45 days prior to departure. If full payment is not received by this date you will be notified by email. If you do not respond within 3 business days, your spot will be forfeited and offered to participants on the waiting list.
Please note: The date of written (email) communication of intent to cancel is the date considered for the calculation of the cancellation fees. CANCELLED WORKSHOPS: If we are forced to cancel a workshop for any reason, your entire payment will be transferred to another comparable workshop within one calendar year

Do you have an option for single occupancy accommodation, if yes, then what is the cost?
The single occupancy/supplement cost is detailed on the photo tour pages.  

Suppose I am a solo participant and do not wish to opt for a single supplement. How do I go about it? Especially if there is no one ready to share the room.

Since all lodges and hotels bill for double rooms, we are associated with single supplement charges, we will have to book you a single room at the supplement price mentioned for each tour. Alternatively, we can also find a perfect roommate for you based on your gender, age, and interests. If a roommate is not available, a single supplement will be charged.
