FLIGHT BOOKING IMPORTANT INFO:
If your program starts on the 1st of January you need to arrive at the airport on the 1st of January, not before. If your program's last day is the 2nd of December, you need to book your flight for departure on the 2nd of December.
You need to fly into King Shaka Durban via Johannesburg O.R Tambo Airport or Cape Town International Airport. Please book your flight to arrive no later than 1 pm as it's a 4-hour drive back to Sodwana Bay and there is a stretch of road that is very dangerous to drive at night due to stray cows, goats, and dogs.
If all the available flights on the arrival date only arrive after 2 pm you would need to arrive the day before and stay over in Durban to meet us at the airport the next day at the arranged time.
For the departure flight please book a flight for after 12 pm – Lunch time.
If you need assistance with travel arrangements, please let me know, I’m happy to help.
A Sharklife staff member will pick you up from the airport on your arrival day, the staff member will more than likely be me, and I will be in contact with you via WhatsApp a few days before your departure date to start planning.
If you are unsure please do not hesitate to ask for help.
