(a) All of our walks take place in a very special wilderness setting of kunanyi in Wellington Park. We are at the mercy of nature in all her beauty and all her fury. We will under no circumstance knowingly place at risk the health and well-being of our guests and guides. In the case of natural threats, acts of God and the like (e.g. bushfires and impassable snow) we may need to cancel a walk with very little notice. In some cases, this can occur after the walk has commenced. If we need to cancel for any reason, we will fully refund the cost of the walk or provide a replacement walk at a later date convenient to both parties. Any other costs associated with travel to the designated pick up point, overnight accommodation, meals, etc will not be covered by us and therefore we strongly recommend travel insurance be in place for the walk.
