How to Book

In order to Confirm your travel arrangements, note the following key steps that need to be taken:

1.  Fill in and sign the Booking Form - Our Online Booking Form must be completed, or you can print, sign and return the hard copy version of the Booking Form.    Completion and submission of this form is required before we can confirm your arrangements, noting that it contains key information required by The Classic Safari Company and our suppliers in order to ensure your safe and smooth passage.  Information such as your passport names (often different from the name you normally use), passport numbers and validity, dietary requirements, emergency contact information, frequent flyer numbers,  insurance details and so forth.

2.  Organise payment of your Deposit - a 30% non-refundable deposit is required to confirm all your arrangements.  Payment of a deposit indicates acceptance of our booking Terms and Conditions.   Your final payment will be due 60 days prior to your departure at which time your documents will be processed and your final paperwork prepared. 

  • Payment can be made by Cheque, Cash, Credit Card or by Direct Deposit.
  • Cheques should be made payable to -  "The Classic Safari Company".
  • Direct Deposits  can be made into our Australian or US dollar bank (for payment in US dollars only) accounts. For referencing purposes and when making a direct deposit, please quote your File Number (as per your invoice) and Surname.
  • Credit card payments made by Visa, Mastercard and American Express will incur an additional merchant fee of 2%. This is calculated on the total transaction value. Click here to pay online or fill in a Credit Card Authority Form.

3.  Ensure you have comprehensive Travel Insurance cover -  Comprehensive travel insurance is highly recommended and it is advisable to obtain this at the time of paying your deposit.  Our preferred insurance provider is CHI Insurance. If you have a pre-existing medical condition or if you are 75 years and over you first need to obtain a quote from CHI Insurance via The Classic Safari Company.  Details about this process can be obtained from your consultant. Non-residents and resident travellers who have already departed Australia, are ineligible to purchase our recommended insurance. Should you wish to make your own insurance arrangements please provide us with a copy of your current and valid policy and all emergency contact details for our file.
