What's NOT included?
Details on arrival
Start date for this project is the first Monday of the month throughout the year, with the exception of December when the project is closed.
BEFORE YOU BOOK YOUR FLIGHT
All our volunteer projects commence on the first MONDAY OF THE MONTH, as this is when All Out Africa staff can personally collect you from the airport. If your project/ expedition begins in Swaziland and you are traveling from abroad you will need to fly into Johannesburg.
Airport transfers on this day is what is included as a part of your project fee. If you arrive on another day, additional charges may occur.
The bus leaves for Swaziland once all participants have arrived or at 14:45 at the latest, so please ensure you book a flight that arrives before the shuttle departure (allowing time to collect bags and pass through immigration).
If you flight arrives at a later time you will need to arrive a DAY EARLIER and stay overnight in Johannesburg. For these instances, we recommend that you book with our trusted backpackers in Johannesburg, Doves Nest Guest House.
Dove’s Nest will pick you up at the airport and transport you to the guest house, and return you to the airport to meet our staff on the arrival day. If you need assistance making your booking, please let us know.
When you are returning home, the transfers leave in the morning, so please organise for your flight to depart OR Tambo after 14:30, or alternatively you will have to travel the day before and spend a night at Doves Nest Guest House.
*Overnight accommodation in Johannesburg is not included. Payments will need to be made directly to the guest house.
VISA FOR SWAZILAND
It is your responsibility to check if you need a per- arranged visa. Should you need a letter to assist with a visa, please let us know and we will happily assist. Most
nationalities can obtain a 30 day tourist visa on entry – with two 30 day extensions possible in-country
You will be given an ‘International Arrival/Departure form’ on your flight – please fill this in on the plane before landing (it is sensible to make sure you have a pen on the flight with you). When you are filling in the Arrival/Departure form please remember that participating with All Out Africa counts as ‘tourism’ for immigration purposes.
When you arrive at O.R Tambo International Airport, your first stop will be at the Immigrations Desk where you will have to hand them your passport and your Arrival/Departure form that you would have filled out on your flight. Your passport is stamped/ endorsed by the Immigration Officer and he/she will issue you with a visa. Please inform the Officer that you are traveling to Swaziland and they will usually give you a transit visa.
You will then enter the baggage reclaim area to collect your luggage. Once you have your luggage make your way to the exit (signposted in English). There you will be met by one of our staff (holding a sign and wearing a T-shirt with the All Out logo).
You will pass through immigration upon entering Swaziland and the All Out Africa staff member will assist you in getting the entry stamp and the visa you require.
When you arrive a member of All Out Africa staff will request your flight departure time and will organise a transfer for you from Swaziland to OR Tambo.
