  • We cannot take children under 8 on shared safaris but please request a quote on private safaris.
  • Clients flying out of OR TAMBO on last day should please avoid booking flights earlier than 20h00 (domestic flights) and 21h00 (international flights) as one cannot always guarantee on-time arrival at OR Tambo International airport.
