  • Insurance Can Let Your Wild Dreams Come True

International travel insurance is an important part of international travel, no matter what your destination is. Recently, in an Indian forest, one tourist died and another was injured when an elephant they were trying to photograph was apparently startled by the camera’s flash, and trampled them.

The news not just underscores the need for travel insurance, but also the need for prudence when traveling abroad, especially in case of wildlife tourism. In many parts of the world, wildlife tourism is not well regulated, and it is wise to trust common sense.

When wildlife tourism will be a part of your trip, verify that injuries sustained during wildlife safaris will be covered. Most policies will cover these. It is also important that you know more about the destination and the habitat there. Locals are often the best sources of information, but remember that the dollar might exert a strong influence on their opinion. Always heed official warnings if any. Check the credentials of tour operators and guides.

Display responsible behavior when visiting national parks and forests. Remember that you are invading the animals’ space, and might be treated as intruders. Where the official warnings differ from that of the locals, err on the side of caution. It is better to be a few pictures short and alive, than dead with a memory card full of pictures.
