FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I have to get a visa to visit South Africa?
It depends on the country you're from - if you have a U.S. passport, you do not require a visa to visit South Africa for less than 90 days. Most Caribbean islands do not need a visa, including Jamaica, but please check with your local embassy or consulate office (this goes for all other countries as well). Please note that a valid passport with at least two visa pages is required, and it is recommended that your passport be valid for at least six months beyond the date of your entry into South Africa.
Are any vaccinations required for entry into South Africa?
Vaccinations are not mandatory for entry, but the following are recommended if you are traveling to South Africa: COVID-19, yellow fever, hepatitis A & B, typhoid, and rabies.
Which airport should I arrive and depart from?

As soon as possible! Once you register for the trip, we suggest you start searching for flights and booking your ticket early for the best prices.

The first 3 nights will be in Johannesburg, then 3 nights in Madike, and the final 5 nights in Cape Town.
Who am I rooming with?
Rooms are shared between two persons if double occupancy is selected. You may request a roommate if you are traveling with a partner, friend, or family member. Otherwise, you will be matched with someone of the same gender. Single occupancy rooms are available at booking for an additional cost.
