Traveling with Nat Hab amid COVID-19

Dear Traveler,

I'm excited that so many of our guests are already making plans to join us on adventures through the rest of this year and in 2023! Our presence is needed to support the communities and destinations we visit. As you consider your own personal comfort level with traveling, I’d like to offer some reassurance around the steps we are taking to promote health and confidence on our trips:

1) Revised booking policies

Your deposit (and any insurance you purchased) is 100% transferable to another trip until your final balance is due. However, different terms apply to our Gorilla Safaris, India Tiger Safaris, Bhutan & Nepal and any Lindblad-operated trips booked through Natural Habitat Adventures. Different terms may also apply to private trips, custom trips or extensions. Check with us for specifics.

2) No more forced single supplement fees

We've gotten rid of forced single supplement fees, permanently! On all scheduled trips, if you elect for us to assign you a roommate and we cannot find a match with another suitable traveler, you will not be charged any portion of the single fee.

3) COVID-19 testing and vaccine requirements

The most effective strategy for avoiding the spread of COVID-19 on our trips is simple—take all possible steps to prevent it from being there in the first place. Currently, proof of full COVID-19 vaccination for all travelers age 5 and older is required to participate. We also strongly recommend that all eligible travelers get their COVID-19 booster shot. All travelers must test negative on a COVID-19 test administered at the start of the trip. Additionally, many countries and some of our trips require obtaining a negative COVID-19 test prior to departure. Please click here to see the specific requirements for your trip, and click here to review our answers to FAQs about Nat Hab's COVID-19 travel requirements.

4) The smallest groups… and getting smaller

We're already known for the smallest groups in the industry. Our compact group size naturally limits the number of people you're in contact with, and we have further reduced the number of travelers on many departures to enhance distancing between individuals.

5) Remote destinations away from crowds

Far-flung wild places have been our specialty since I founded Nat Hab in 1985. We've always known the best adventures happen where wildlife is our nearest neighbor. And now we’re adjusting our itineraries to spend even more time in secluded locations away from other travelers.

6) Enhanced sanitation and protection

Following guidelines from the WHO, CDC, and local authorities, we have developed some of the most rigorous on-trip protocols in the industry to enhance traveler safety. For up-to-date details on our protocols, click here.

7) Creativity at mealtimes

When weather permits, we have been eating as many meals as possible outside—not only is it safer than being indoors, it gives us more time in the beauty of nature! When a picnic is not an option, we do look for restaurants that offer the recommended spacing between diners.

8) Make It Private

Our Make It Private option allows you to enjoy any of our expertly crafted itineraries exclusively with your hand-selected group of friends or family members.

For nature enthusiasts like us, travel to wild places is never far from our minds. While some may not be ready to pack up and go just yet, it is important to have adventure, exploration and the tonic of nature to look forward to. I hope the measures listed above help bring that next trip a little closer for you!

I hope to see you out there,



Ben Bressler
Explorer, Founder, President
