  • Transfers will be on an allocated day from Polokwane every two weeks. If you require a transfer on a different day or a different location, there will be an extra charge.
  • You will be greeted at airport arrivals when your flight arrives. You will then be transported to Mapesu Game Reserve which is approximately 2.5 hours away.
  • Students will be able to buy supplies from either Musina or Polokwane (if there is a pick-up or drop off).

Food and drink

We supply drinking water. The tap water is use for brushing teeth and washing

Health care

  • Daily spraying of insect repellent is advisable. Mapesu is in a low risk malaria area, in winter mosquitoes are rare.
  • Consult a GP on vaccinations but Tetanus is advised.
  • Doctors are in Musina, approximately one hour away and a large hospital is in Polokwane. All staff are first aid trained. We have medical emergency procedures in place.


  • It is recommended that you bring Rand with you rather than exchange foreign currency here.
  • It is sometimes a laborious task exchanging money at a bank in South Africa and the airport will not give you a fair rate.
