Logistics


Please contact Vicki Hooper vicki@venues.co.za with any detailed logistics questions.

Transfer: Anew Hotel Hluhluwe & Safaris is about 2.5 hours north of Durban’s King Shaka International Airport.  We will arrange transfers from the airport to the venue on Sunday 5th March 2023, and we will finalise the time(s) as flight arrangements are made. Similarly, we will transfer delegates to King Shaka International Airport on Saturday 11th March 2023. Alternatively, you may wish to rent a car: this is usually quite affordable, with small cars typically available for as little as 300 ZAR/day.  All but the last few kilometres are on the N2 highway.  Note that there are tolls on the N2 (a total of 74 ZAR), so those who drive may wish to make sure they have some South African cash.  Virtually all cars in South Africa have standard transmissions, so you should check for an automatic transmission if you require one when booking a car.

Internet/phone:  WiFi is available at the conference venue.  SIM cards and data are quite cheap in South Africa and are readily available.  Since coverage in rural areas can be intermittent, we recommend going with either Vodacom or MTN.  Note that many providers (for instance Verizon in the US) will unlock phones for international travel while still under contract, but this usually needs to be done in advance of departure.
