All accommodation arrangements in the Kruger Park for the duration of the conference will be made by the local organising committee. A deposit of US$150 per person is required for accommodation. This should be sent with your registration form and should reach the Conference Secretariate as soon as possible but no later than 31 March 2001.
Please note that because of the limitations imposed by the conference facilities, the number of participants to the conference will be limited to 135. This number does not include family members or friends accompanying participants. At this stage it certainly looks like as if the conference will be oversubscribed. Places will be allocated to delegates on grounds of accepted papers but also on grounds of when your application and deposit were received.
The Berg-en-Dal restcamp provides accommodation for 340 people. Each unit (chalet or hut) has its own private barbecue and entertainment area. Cutlery, crockery, refrigerators, cooking facilities, bedding and air conditioning are available in each unit. The camp also has public laundry facilities.
There are two types of accommodation units available:
There is also a take-away cafeteria which is open for most of the day. In addition the camp is equipped with a fully-stocked grocery store for those participants who wish to cook for themselves.
A one-time only entrance fee of US$10 is payable by all visitors to the Park.
The exchange rate is volatile but today (10 January 2001) it is: US$1 = R7.50.
By the rules of the Park, visitors are under no circumstances allowed to leave any camp after 17:30. So you are there for the night.
