The booking form for my Namibian plains game safari called for a 50% deposit. That seems normal, based on my experience with hunts in the US and Canada. However, when I asked for details so I could wire the deposit, the answer that I got was "your dates are booked if it will be easier for you to send some money ahead of time then by all means you can send some money over."
The total cost of the hunt plus tips and money for my wife to go shopping would be a sizable sum. I don't like carrying that much cash. (My life is mostly cashless.) Therefore, I will want to wire some money to them.
How should I pay for the remaining balance? When should I pay? I've found it common for outfitters in North America to want the final payment prior to the start of the hunt (seems reasonable).
Assuming that I make the final payment after I arrive, what form should it be? (I could have another wire transfer sent once I arrive in camp.)
