GENERAL FAQ

WHERE SHOULD I STAY?

HOW MUCH ARE FLIGHTS TO CAPE TOWN?

We have arranged for a discounted price at $XX hotel. if hotels aren't your thing, You can book an Airbnb — they start at about $80 a night.

 

Flights are typically $700-$1000 from the U.S., which is why we are letting you know so far in advance. That's only about $2 a day from now until the wedding — Less than a cup of coffee or a subway ride!

DO I NEED ANY VACCINES?

HOW EXPENSIVE IS SOUTH AFRICA?

There are no mandatory vaccines, but a few recommended ones per the CDC.

Malaria pills are also not necessary for the game reserve we are planning to go to.

 

 

We totally understand that getting there is not cheap, but once in Cape Town, it's a fairly inexpensive country.

for example: 
a beer = ~$2
a 15 MIN. taxi = ~$5
& a fancy meal for 2 = ~$30.
You can't beat that!

I THOUGHT CAPE TOWN RAN OUT OF WATER?

IS THERE A GIFT REGISTRY?

not really, cape town has delayed "Day Zero," the day the city would eventually run out of water. Also, a lot of the places we will be visiting operate off their own private water wells. 

 

 

 

 

no! destination weddings are expensive, especially for the guests. gifts are not necessary at all — your presence is the best gift.
