Yes. We can arrange international flights for you no matter where you are travelling from.
As a travel operator, we are often able to hold flights for you until you are ready to make your final payment, which can be helpful if you have a late change of plan. Naturally, we always aim to keep travel prices to a minimum for you as well.
If you would like us to give you a quote for flights to Johannesburg from the departure city of your choice, please tell us during our telephone consultation.
Maybe you have other travel plans or want to use a Round-the-World-Ticket or air miles? That’s fine – you can always arrange your own flights.
All we ask is that you talk to us about suitable flight times when arranging your flights. Our team on the ground in South Africa will meet you and any other conservation travellers at Johannesburg airport. So when arranging your air travel, you need to look for flights that tie in with these group meeting and transfer times in Johannesburg (we’ll tell you when these are).
From Johannesburg, your transfer to your project is taken care of and included in your placement.
Yes. When you land in Johannesburg, one of our team members will be waiting in the arrivals hall to meet you. They’ll talk you through everything you need to know and answer any questions you may have before personally seeing you to your connecting journey. If you have any luggage problems, we’ll also assist you with resolving them.
After your trip, we’ll also meet you back in Johannesburg to hear all about your time in Africa and wish you a warm farewell.
This service is included for all our travellers, even if you arrive in South Africa before the start date of your volunteering experience.
Transfers to most of our locations are done by road. We use accredited travel and transfer partners with shuttle vehicles. For your safety, we don’t schedule road transfers at night.
For projects based outside of South Africa or a long distance from Johannesburg, we’ll see you onto a short-haul connecting flight followed by a pickup and transfer at the other end.
At the end of your trip our team will also meet you from your transfer or flight back at Johannesburg airport and ensure you are safely checked in for your flight home or any onward travel.
