· • The reason NO AIRFARES are added to the land arrangements is that guests are from all over the world and some people would like to use their frequent flyer mileages’ as well as some guests might have more than one stop over from their country to India. Airfares from Johannesburg to Delhi vary from around R6 500 upwards, depending on date of booking. Airfares from Cape Town vary from around R8 500 upwards depending departure dates. A suggestion is to book well in advance to qualify for specials on airfares. i.e. Qatar Emirates or Etihad
· Please be advised that in Jaipur the Elephant Ride up to the Amber Fort, is subject to availability, as there are a limited number of elephants available and the clients have to wait in a queue as it is on a first-come, first-served basis.
· Please be advised that all accommodation is on a twin basis (double room) sharing. In the event of only one passenger travelling, indicate whether we can match you up with a suitable “room mate”. We have done that in past trips and great friendships have been the result. If not, a single supplement will be added.
