About personal data
Personal data relates to any living individual who can be identified from that data. As of May 25, 2018, in the European Union the processing of personal data is governed by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
How is the data collected?
When you make contact with us whether it be on the telephone, through our website, on email or book your safari holiday with us, all data relevant to your safari booking or enquiry is held securely in our database.
What data do we collect?
Personal data collected through a contact form will usually include your full name, email, address and any other information you choose to divulge to us at this stage. When you book your safari, we will need to collect more detailed data such as your date of birth, passport details including name and number, health requirements and dietary requirements. We also collect information on your interests to ensure we can provide the best experience for you.
We may collect personal information depending on your payment method, such as bank transfer or credit card payment. Any data collected will be destroyed when the purpose for collection has been completed.
What is your data used for?
Your personal data is used to fulfil our obligations to you, which include:
- Discussing safari arrangements
- Sending you the requested information
- Providing a quote
- Sending you e-marketing or direct mail, if requested by you
- Booking your safari
- Asking for feedback on our services
- Notifying you of any changes to your booking.
We never sell or rent data to third parties. When you book, this data will be passed on to your third-party agent on the ground to ensure everything runs smoothly whilst you are on safari. These third parties have agreed to our terms and only use any personal information we share with them solely for the purpose of providing the contracted service to us.
We sell travel arrangements to destinations around the world, which means your personal information may be transferred and stored in other countries which may be outside your country of residence. Some of these countries are subject to different standards of data protection than your country of residence. We will take all appropriate steps to ensure adequate levels of protection are in place to protect your information.
Will my information be used for marketing?
If you give us consent, we will use your name and email address for our e-marketing via our digital newsletter. We will never spam you and always endeavour to send you interesting email newsletters. We will also occasionally send you more tailored marketing depending on your interests based on your enquiry, previous quotes, previous trips and conversations with the Natural High team.

How long do we keep your data?
We keep your personal information for as long as is reasonably necessary for the purposes for which it was collected.
