Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I need to book in advance?

    If you are looking at booking between November and March we would suggest booking a month in advance as this is our busiest time of the year. For all other times of the year, we would suggest booking at least two weeks ahead.

    If you are planning to spend a few nights in the Fox or Franz Josef townships, we recommend booking for the first day of your stay. This gives you the opportunity to reschedule your flight if we experience bad weather and have to cancel your booking.

  • Can I cancel/ change my booking?

    You may cancel or change your booking up to 24 hours before your flight without incurring any cost.

    Any changes/ cancellations made within 24 hours of your flight time will incur a 100% charge.

    Your flight is subject to favourable weather conditions; if cancelled due to poor weather, you will be given a partial refund.
