*PASSPORT: Please also e-mail us a scanned copy of you passport photo page so we have this on file.
Note that all visitors to southern Africa require a valid passport together with onward travel documents and sufficient funds for the duration of their stay. Please ensure you have enough blank VISA (not endorsement) pages in your passport, with at least two consecutive/side by side blank pages. Our recommendation is minimum 3 blank pages (4 or more if travelling through several countries on your journey).
If you are traveling with children under the age of 18, please be aware that you are required to provide an unabridged birth certificate (including the details of the child's father as well as the mother) of all traveling children. This applies even when both parents are travelling with their children and it also applies to foreigners and South Africans alike. When children are travelling with guardians, these adults are required to produce affidavits from parents proving permission for the children to travel. It is important for parents to note that unabridged birth certificate applications can take anything for six to eight weeks to complete.
**WEIGHT & HEIGHT: The rationale behind asking for your personal weight & height is that overall aircraft weight and balance is key on charter flights – relating to fuel loads, distances flown, passenger load, reserve tank allowances and potential emergency procedures. Safety is paramount to us. We have an impeccable record and this is not something we can ever risk compromising.
a) Should we not receive an indication of weight prior to travel, then we will need to weigh the passenger on check-in. If more than 100kg (220lbs), we will have to arrange for additional weight allowance on the light aircraft transfers or even private charters, both at additional cost.
b) Note that there are also very strict luggage type, size and weight restrictions for charter flights - please ensure you are familiar with these requirements as you will be asked to re-pack/leave your bags at the airport should the dimensions not comply.
c) Additionally, please be advised that weight restrictions apply to all helicopter transfers and scenic flights – allowances are dependent on itinerary and routing so this information is required in advance.
***TRAVEL INSURANCE: We recommend travel insurance. Please let us know below if you would like ROAR AFRICA to arrange insurance for you.
