If you are going on a safari, we recommend considering a policy that provides Trip Cancellation, Emergency Medical and Medical Evacuation coverage, depending on your specific needs.
Safaris are generally covered activities under travel insurance policies. If you are spending a significant amount of money on a safari you may want to consider purchasing a Trip Cancellation policy to insure your investment.
In addition to insuring the cost of the trip, you may want to purchase a policy with Emergency Medical and Medical Evacuation benefits. Emergency Medical benefits provide coverage for unforeseen illnesses or injuries that occur while traveling, while Medical Evacuation covers the transportation cost to the nearest adequate medical facility. We typically recommend at least $100,000 in Emergency Medical coverage, and $250,000 in Medical Evacuation when traveling to a remote location.
This information can vary based on the travel insurance policy. Please review the policy certificate to verify coverage. If you have questions about a specific policy, please contact us directly at 800-240-0369. Our customer service representatives are available from 8am to 10pm ET seven days a week and are delighted to help!
