How to Get to South Africa
International and local air flights to South Africa are not included in your quoted trip price. It is up to each member of our group to make flight arrangements to meet the tour in Cape Town on the October 22nd 2013.
Don't delay in submitting your air travel needs to the right of this page for a no obligation fare quote. If your preference is either coach or business class we are here to assist you. As always we highly recommend trip insurance.
The earlier we confirm the best chance we have of securing lower fares on both these and local flights within South Africa.
Travel Tip: To best deal with acclimation after your international flight most members of past tours have flown in a day or two earlier. Extra hotel costs apply. Contact us to make these arrangements possible.
