How do I reserve a date for my event at Tatanka?
A 25% deposit is required at the time of booking to reserve your date for your event. The deposit is non-refundable and non-transferrable toward a different date or event. After the deposit has been paid you have up until a month before your event date to pay for the remaining balance. You can make payments along the way, large periodic payments, or a large lump-sum payment at the 30-day mark.
Do I need event insurance?
No, Tatanka Ranch is fully insured. You are welcome to purchase additional insurance if you deem necessary.
What happens if I need to postpone or reschedule my event?
If you reschedule, you will lose your previous deposit and a new one is required to reserve your new date. The new date must be selected within 30 days of written notice of the postponement.
