Costs

You will need to provide your own flights, travel and medical insurance and food.

The accommodation fee at Campfornis is 4,500 Rand a month, and is reduced after a stay of three months. This covers:

  • Accommodation equipped with hot showers, flush toilets, a gas stove, fridge and freezer, tapped drinking water, washing machine, gas and firewood.
  • The use of available scientific equipment.
  • Academic supervision, training and support.
  • Transport to Alldays once a fortnight for shopping.
  • Transport to Alldays for medical emergencies.
  • Transport from and to Polokwane International Airport or bus station during arrival and departure.

Payment

Accommodation payments are made in cash to Braam, the Farm Manager, monthly in advance. The first payment is due on arrival and is based on the number of days left for that specific calendar month, so please make sure you bring enough cash with you.

There are no banks in Alldays, but there are ATM’s where you are able to draw money. Mastercard and Visa work best, but you can also use American Express at these ATMs. We recommend visitors to always have some cash on hand as the ATM’s are not always available or working!

The accommodation fee is not reduced for absence due to field trips or holiday travelling. For this reason, we recommend that you arrange your holiday trips after you have left the research centre.
