Mandatory Insurance
Since the areas we travel to on this trip are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we require medical evacuation insurance for our guests' safety. If you decline the medical evacuation insurance coverage offered by Natural Habitat, we request that you send us documentation of the independent coverage you have selected. We will add the cost of a medical evacuation policy to your tour invoice until you provide our office with proof of coverage including your insurance company's name, contact number and your individual policy number. Thank you for understanding that our policy exists exclusively in the interest of our guests' safety.
Physical Requirements
Moderate to Difficult / Flexible
This itinerary involves city walking tours 2-3 hours in duration, as well as walks/hikes over uneven or rocky terrain at altitudes of up to 11,000 feet. You will get the most enjoyment out of this trip if you are comfortable walking a fair amount. We must also climb steep stairs in order to enter some of the cultural sites. We stress that all activities are optional.
Important Information About This Trip
While the nature experiences in this part of the world are indeed remarkable, there is a fundamental difference between the wildlife experience of Nepal and that found in Africa. At times, guests that are lured to Nepal by tourist brochures promising “wildlife safaris” can be disappointed to see fewer animals than they expected, or at least fewer than they might normally see in Africa. It is not that the surviving jungles are thinly populated, but, similar to places like Costa Rica or Panama where the forest is thick with vegetation, the creatures have mastered the art of camouflage and deception and can be extremely difficult to spot. At Nat Hab we design our itineraries to capitalize on the best areas to spot wildlife. But various factors can affect potential sightings, including inclement weather, which creates small pockets of water that allow the animals to remain hidden in the forest. The secret for visitors lies in the assistance of expert guides, as well as knowing what to expect and in understanding that the privilege of stepping into a pure and untouched world is a reward in itself.
Getting There & Getting Home
You should plan to arrive in Bangkok one day prior to the start of the tour and depart on the final day after 10 pm. We recommend that you stay an extra night in Bangkok to account for any flight delays. We can best serve you if our Natural Habitat Adventures Travel Desk makes your reservations, as we are intimately familiar with the special requirements of this program and can arrange the most efficient travel. Please call us at 1-800-543-8917. Note that while we offer you the best possible rates available to us on airfare and additional nights' accommodations, you may find special web rates or better fares online.
