Most nationalities don't require a visa to visit South Africa. A passport valid for at least 6 months is required. Check here for visa requirements for each country: 

Ask your travel agent to double check if you require a visa to enter South Africa.

Airport transfer:

Clients are collected and dropped off at the Port Elizabeth Airport and this service is included in your daily rate. We suggest flying to either O.R. Tambo (Johannesburg) or Cape Town Airport, and catching a connecting, short domestic flight (1 hour 30 minutes) to Port Elizabeth. Noorsveld Safaris, located on Olyvenfontein ranch, is a picturesque 2 hours’ drive from Port Elizabeth. Pick up from and drop off at the airport are not included as hunting days.
