Booking Terms and Conditions

All Policies will be applicable as at date of arrival, not date of reservation.


Please note we are unable to provide any advice relating to the COVID-19 virus and therefore shall not be liable for any loss or damage directly or indirectly caused by COVID- 19, and shall not be liable for any damage, loss or expenses suffered as a result of sickness, quarantine, weather conditions, or any other cause outside our control.




While restrictions are still in place and where a request is made to postpone a booking due to Covid-19, the reservation will be held on a provisional basis unconditionally, until 30 days prior at which point the Agent will be contacted to confirm or cancel the reservation if they have not already done so. Where no credit facilities are in place a 50% refundable deposit must be paid to confirm the reservation, and full prepayment made 14 days prior to arrival.


Reservations will be held on an initial provisional basis for 30 days at which time the Agent will be contacted if no confirmation has been received. The booking can be extended for a further 30 days, at which point the reservation must either be confirmed or cancelled. If no
credit facilities are in place a 50% refundable deposit must be received to confirm the reservation.


Full pre-payment will be required 14 days prior to arrival.

Where credit terms are in place, no prepayment will be requested, but full payment MUST be made within 15 days of statement.


Following the lifting of the Covid-19 WHO pandemic status, these conditions will revert to our standard policy whereby provisional bookings will be held for 10 days only, whereupon they will be automatically cancelled unless otherwise notified, and deposit paid.



No cancellation fees will be levied if the clients are unable to travel due to the following
reasons :

  • The government in the guest’s country of residence restricts all but essential travel
  • International flights are cancelled/unavailable with no alternative routings available for guest to use to reach the destinations in the itinerary
  • The South African Government prohibits guest from traveling from their particular country as per booked itinerary
  • Clients receive a positive Covid-19 test not more than 72 hours before the date of travel and are therefore unable to commence their journey.
  • Cancellation fees WILL be levied if the client is able to travel but makes a personal decision not to.

This policy will remain in place whilst the WHO Pandemic status remains in place. Only once all of the above reasons have been removed and guests can travel as per normal, excluding any quarantine requirements, will standard cancellation policies be accepted again to replace above policy.
