I'm thinking that for ANY "off the map" travel, be it a hunt, or whatever, Global Rescue would be an essential component of our planning. Climbing Everest? Antarctic adventures? paddling up the Amazon? G R for your own, and family's sake ... This from a bloke with NO love or appreciation for insurance companies. As an aside, what do the people of PNG call insurance companies? PukPuks. (crocodiles, they'll eat anything).
 
Anybody with experience getting rescued or making a claim? I've had travel insurance since 1990 and yet to make a claim. It comes packaged with my homeowners policy.

Good question. I would like to know myself.
(if the local government cannot provide rescue service with helicopters, or boats, or other assets, then how a foreign company can do?)

I know Happy Myles had an incident where he was seriously mauled by a leopard. As I recall he was air lifted to Germany? Would like to hear what insurance was involved. An interesting side note: that leopard essentially saved his life. While he was hospitalized they discovered colon cancer. That cat should have got a medal. Instead it gets shot. I wonder if Happy got a mount out of it?

Ontario, i had no airlift to Germany. our Mayday call brought in a young teenager in a small wing over plane and he had just got his license. He made such a e rough landing on a hastily cleared strip I was afraid for his life. He flew me to Windhoek For free. The doctor who patched me up at the hospital charged me a hundred bucks Cash. He wa happy with a crisp 100 dollar bill. The hospital was great. Back in Los Angeles the plastic surgeon sent me to another doctor for a physical and discovered I had serious colorectal cancer. Yes, the cat saved my life. Another time i spent time in Uganda hospital with stomach blockage it was a nightmare.
Since then I have been a faithful customer of Global Rescue. You always think it will not happen to yourself and then it does. Do yourself a favor and use Global Rescue

Glad to get that story straight from the source. Did you get to keep the leopard?
 
Yes indeed, i kept the leopard. It was a problem leopard and I was asked to stop elephant hunting to take care of cat. After i was mauled I jokingly asked the government agent if I got to keep the cat. He nodded seriously and said, he would organize it as that seemed fair. I had it mounted in full charge. It was not very big, luckily for me. Recently gave it and a warehouse full of taxidermy to a couple colleges.

Hmmm. No licenses for leopard in South Africa but maybe if I tie myself to a stake at night and sit on a gut pile, one will attack and I'll get a freebie :D .
 
I did not say it was a freebie

One day you are vacationing on an island, and the next you are hunkering down and bracing for a cyclone. If you are not privy to hurricanes and cyclones (or even if you are) this can be a scary thing and will definitely impact your vacation.

For one of our members, saying this category four cyclone impacted their vacation would be an understatement!

A window broke, causing significant damage to his hand. A local physician examined and diagnosed him with two severed tendons and suggested immediate surgery. Being on a relatively remote island, this was not something they could accommodate nearby and our medical operations team organized (and paid for) the member and his wife to fly to Brisbane, Australia for the surgery.

When he was given his fit-to-fly letter from his doctors in Brisbane, we organized and paid for (again) him to return home safely and finish his recovery from home.

Do you know where you would even begin if you are injured while traveling? Do you know where the best hospitals are? With a Global Rescue Membership, you don't have to worry about any of that. Just call us.
 
Climbing season is going strong in the Himalayas and our Global Rescue team is ready if our members need us.

You really are HAPPY Miles!
Congrats on leopard!

Like a walk in the forest in the fall. While your attention will likely be focused on the colors in the tree canopy, it's often those slippery leaves fallen on the ground that you should be watching most. ‍♀️

About Lon's Elephant hunts w/Tokoloshe? I hear Lon is battling cancer? What is his long term prognosis? I am already booked to hunt Africa in 2024 2025. Might consider 2026 for another African hunt. I want to hunt a more wild open region devoid of civilization. Concern is the risk that I book f/2026 then find poor Lon has passed on? Does Lon have any assistance to carry on the business in his absence?

Is your 22HP still available? If so have the original case?

Hi Ian, I'm contemplating my first outing, leaving UK via Dubai to Africa, taking rifles as you did.

I presume it went okay for you, would you have done anything differently? Cheers, Richard East Sussex

Are you still looking for a 375 H&H?
