INTERNATIONAL, REGIONAL AND DOMESTIC FLIGHTS ON SCHEDULED CARRIERS.
International check-in - 3 hours prior to departure.
• Regional check-in - 2 hours prior to departure.
• Domestic check-in - 2 hour prior to departure.
Please ensure that all your onward flights are reconfirmed at least 72 hours
prior to flying.
On all international flights to and from the region, there are departure
taxes to pay. These can be included in your airfare and should be reflected
on the ticket for scheduled flights. If this is not reflected on the air
ticket, then the airline will collect the taxes from you directly. All domestic
departure taxes on charter flights are included in the price of your safari.
We offer two types of air transfer: either a private charter where you have
sole use of the aircraft, or a scheduled air transfer based on a "seat-in-plane"
basis where you share the aircraft with other guests (and thereby benefit
from the lower cost). Unless specifically requested to do otherwise, we
will automatically book you onto the scheduled air transfer with other guests,
as this is the more cost-effective option.
When we package an itinerary using scheduled air transfers, we book the
aircraft and pilot through licensed charter companies. All the flight times
between lodges are arranged a few days before the flights take place so
that there are not endless schedule changes. The lodge or camp where you
are staying will be advised of your departure time the day before and will
have you at the airstrip on time.
We cannot be more firm on timings as the charter companies are compelled
to service their aircraft every 100 hours, which could mean all air movements
have to be rescheduled at the last moment. At certain times of the year
it may be necessary, for safety reasons, to transfer you from camp to camp
during the cooler times of the day, in early morning or late afternoon only.
Once the departure times have been set they cannot be changed unless substantial
additional costs are paid.
Therefore, regard chartered flights as you would a flight on a scheduled
carrier - arrive on time for check-in!
