Workshop Fees

All fees will be charged in South African Rands (ZAR). Approximate US$ and € equivalents are given in brackets. These are based on rates of $1 = R11.85 and €1 = R12.73, but will vary as the exchange rates fluctuate. To obtain the current exchange rates and to convert the ZAR amounts into your own currency [Euros (€), GBP (£), USD ($), etc] go to The Universal Currency Converter.

Please note: the currency conversions are for your budgeting purposes only - all payments must be specified as the ZAR (R) amounts.

Post-doctoral fellows do not qualify for the student discount and must register as full delegates, but they may apply for Young Scientist's financial support

g At previous Indabas many delegates did not attend breakfasts and some preferred to make their own arrangements for the evening meals - braais (barbecues), etc; therefore these meals are now optional items. The five breakfasts (Monday to Friday) and/or the three dinners on the evenings when there are no functions (Monday to Wednesday) can be ordered and paid for in advance. Alternatively, there is a cafeteria and shop in the Skukuza Camp where food can be purchased. The rondavals have braai (barbecue) facilities.
