Entry Requirements


If you hold a passport from Canada or the USA you do not need a visa for a stay of less than 90 days in South Africa. If you hold a passport from another country, please contact your consulate for details.



Your passport must be valid for 6 months after the last day of travel and have at least 2 blank pages.

While no specific vaccinations are required, we recommend that your routine vaccinations are up to date and that you visit a local travel health clinic or doctor for advice prior to the trip.


This project is not situated in a malaria area. However, we do recommend that you consult with a qualified medical practitioner before travelling. and bring a DEET spray to assist in preventing mosquito/tick bites.


Contact with wild animals may occur during this tour. Therefore, an up-to-date (within the past 10 years) tetanus vaccination is recommended. Talk to your health care provider or visit a travel clinic to determine if, based on your risks, you should be vaccinated before travelling.


There is an ongoing rabies outbreak in dogs in South Africa. Travellers are at increased risk of getting rabies if their work or recreational activities make them more likely to come into contact with free-roaming dogs. A vaccine is available for rabies. Talk to your health care provider or visit a travel clinic to determine if, based on your risks, you should be vaccinated before travelling.


SNAKE, SPIDER, SCORPION AND TICK INFORMATION: This project is located in the heart of the Kalahari. As a result, encounters with snakes, scorpions, spiders and ticks are indeed possible. Whilst a conscious effort is made to remove those that pose a threat to guests and staff, it is impossible to prevent such encounters entirely. We urge guests to be mindful of this and advise the use a flashlight at night and to always wear closed shoes.
Proof of Yellow Fever vaccination is required if you are coming from or have transited through an airport of a country where yellow fever occurs.


The Women's Travel Club recommends travelers to be fully vaccinated against COVID. Some countries will require COVID vaccination to enter, it is the traveler's resposibility to insure they meet all requirements.  


Travel requirements may change at any time. Please visit your government's travel recommendations page.
