This workshop is jointly organized with African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS),
South African Centre for Epidemiological Modelling and Analysis (SACEMA) and University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg.
This workshop is jointly sponsored by:
We are trying to see if we can put groups together for pre- or post-conference tours, either a one day tour in the Johannesburg area or a two or three day "safari" for animal viewing, or some historical tours of interest. Here are three examples of tours that we think are of interest:
A. KRUGER NATIONAL PARK SAFARI
COST: R4215.00pp Single Supplement R445.00
INCLDUES: transport, guide, dinner bed and breakfast, accomodation
PICK UP: Wherever - but a surcharge for it not being in Sandton or Rosebank. Our group would be close to those, so surcharge to be confirmed - should be below R75.
RETURN: variable - but late afternoon rather than evening is normal
ACCOMODATION: variable, as possible to arrange on notice given. NOT guaranteed within boundaries of Kruger park, but would then be very close.
CONFIRMATION NEEDED: 2-3 days will do - longer notice means better accomodation. Minimum two people needed.
PAYMENT: credit card info can be supplied as late as on the day, using the cell phone of the driver - but I'm guessing they will be more motivated to lock in good accomodation if they are paid earlier.
