Sign in and out timetable :


With today's pace of life and the fact that we all want to fully utilize a break, it is sometimes necessary to have a Friday evening departure, and so arriving late at Tala Manzi. Should this be the case, and you know that you will only arrive after 18:00 at Groot Marico, it will be necessary to arrange this in advance with management. Normal check-in times are between 14:00 and 17:00.


Check-out will be during the course of the morning, but you will promptly have to leave the camp at 14:00 unfortunately. Should it be required to spend the full day in the camp a day fee will be requested. (If there is a cancellation it must be done at least 48 hours before arrival, otherwise the deposit will be forfeited)
