When traveling to Doornrivier Safaris our clients will arrive at either Cape Town or Johannesburg (OR Tambo) international airport. After which you have to take an domestic flight to Port Elizabeth airport where one of our friendly staff members will collect you and take you to our base camp. Important to note that if you are traveling with your own firearms, you have to use South African Airlink for your domestic flight to Port Elizabeth as they are the only local airways that allow travel with firearms.
Clients from the United States of America as well as the majority of European countries do not need a visa to enter South Africa. You can stay in the Republic of South Africa for up to 90 days from your day of arrival. The only documentation needed is a valid passport.
There are additional documentation needed when traveling with minors. Any person under the age of 18 must have an unabridged birth certificate with their full name as printed in their passport, as well as a certified copy of both of the parents passports. If a minor is traveling with only one parent, said parent has to produce an unabridged birth certificate as well as an signed affidavit by the other legal parent that the child may enter or exit South Africa with the parent accompanying him/her. The affidavit has to have both parents full names as displayed in their passports as well as an certified copy of the passport and an 24-hour contact number for the non traveling parent. Please note that failure to produce the above mentioned documentation will result in the minor not being able to travel to and from South Africa.
We understand that this is an extra hassle, however the decisions made by the immigration services is final and we have to comply with it. We hope that this does not discourage you from bringing your children on safari, as we believe they are our future and we must provide them with this experience so that they can continue to take the hunting and outdoor way of life further. Please note that children under the age of 12 pay a reduced day fee of $100. Do not hesitate to contact us with any concerns.
