Insurance Partners

To be eligible to be one of our insurance partners you need to be a travel company whose business, in part, consists of marketing African Safaris directly to USA residents. If you are not based in, or do not have an office in the USA, you can not legally sell travel insurance to USA residents. However, by partnering with the Safari Samaritan you can earn commissions on travel insurance policies sold to your USA clients, and at the same time have the opportunity to promote the donation of solar powered lamps to your clients. This partnership is not intended to compete with travel agencies who are booking clients with you. These agencies can sell travel insurance to their clients and we will not interfere with this. However, if the agency does not sell travel insurance and the client asks about insurance, feel free to recommend us.

As an incentive to our partners to recommend us, we are offering them the following:

  1. Your commission rate on policies sold to your clients who are USA residents will be 10% of the commissionable cost of the policy. Every policy has a $7 service charge which is not commissionable.
  2. Participating in our Solar Powered Lamps Program is very simple. We will provide you with the necessary contact points to purchase the lamps and whatever guidance you need.
  3. The travel insurance plans we offer contain an important capability (Evacuation to Hospital of your Choice) that most competitive plans do not have, as well as being less expensive. If you refer your clients to our Information Page they will get valuable information before they purchase travel insurance. It also provides them with an Inquiry Form, which enables us to provide them with a formal quote and description of a policy, from which they can purchase the policy with a single phone call.

Solar Powered Lamps
Solar Powwered Lamp

In rural communities in Africa where many homes do not have electricity, solar powered lamps improve the daily lives of children and adults by providing clean and healthy lighting. This is accomplished by replacing dangerous, expensive, and polluting kerosene lamps with lamps powered by the sun. These solar lights enable children to study at night and adults to extend their workday, all the while eliminating carbon emissions, improving household health, and increasing a family’s standard of living.

As part of your customized safari your tour operator can arrange for you to make a stop at a local school, where you can personally donate the lamps. You can decide how many lamps you will like to donate and the cost will simply be added to the final payment of your safari. The lamps will be in your van as you leave on safari, ready for you to deliver. It’s that simple! You will be amazed how adding as little as 1% or 2% to the cost of your safari can make such a profound difference in the lives of children, and at the same time adding another great experience to your safari.
