We make every possible effort to maintain our schedule. However, certain unforeseeable conditions (political, climatic, environmental, cultural, or wildlife migrations) may require changes to the schedule. We reserve the right to alter any schedule at any time if necessary – of course notifying all participants of changes as far in advance as possible.

As with any wildlife tour, we cannot guarantee which species you will see, as wildlife behavior patterns are unpredictable. Rest assured we have selected dates and routes that will provide the best viewing opportunities for you. Two persons per row of seating in the vehicles.
