Cancellation / Rescheduling / Weather Policy
Because of the extensive planning and preparation that goes into our multi-day tours and the high demand for daytours there are significant but reasonable fees associated with cancellation and rescheduling, especially the closer to the tour date that it occurs.
By purchasing a tour with DST, checking the relevant mandatory box online during online booking, and/or returning the signed edoc after a phone booking, I acknowledge that I have read and fully accept the cancellation/rescheduling schedule below and agree to pay accordingly in such an event. Failure to return the mandatory Cancellation/Weather Policy edoc in the case of a phone booking does not absolve me of the policies herein. Simply purchasing the tour makes these policies applicable to me. I also forfeit any chargeback rights through my credit card company with regard to these penalties. Furthermore I agree to forego any negative reviews or any other public reputation degradation based on Dreamland Safari Tours following through on this policy as stated and agreed upon by both parties from the outset. I fully understand that Dreamland does not give in or deviate from this policy in response to blackmail or threats of this type of reputation damage for following this policy. I understand that if I do not agree with this policy, I will not buy seats on a Dreamland tour or if I cannot afford the loss in the event of cancellation, I will buy trip insurance to protect my investment. I fully understand that Dreamland Safari Tours does not expressly or implicitly insure my investment in their experiences against exigent circumstances in my life, which they cannot control, against their own interests.

We strongly recommend that you purchase travel insurance on D.S.T. adventures especially if your circumstances dictate it (i.e. sick family members, unpredictable job requirements, hurricane season, etc.). We will not deviate from this policy for any reason. Click here to learn more about Travel Insurance.
A Word on Weather
Although it very rarely happens, we reserve the right to cancel or reroute tours up until the last minute due to weather, safety, or other uncontrollable circumstances. In this case we will try to reschedule, give rainchecks, agree on another more accessible destination, or if necessary give a full refund. Cancellations are slightly more likely in Winter. PLEASE NOTE: Dreamland Safari Tours makes all calls about weather. Unless it is unsafe, we lean towards completing the tour as is for a variety of reasons. We also wait until the last minute to make these calls. We do not speculate on forecasts. If a party should decide to cancel outside of or in advance of our decision making, the standard cancellation policy will apply.
