Looking for Extra Time in South Africa?:
We can offer 7 extra nights in Cape Towwn for $1255 + GST plus a flight deviation fee.
The flight deviation fee is the difference in airfare price between the flights included in our official itinerary and the extension departure date. The current flight deviation fee is $225 + GST.
Please note that the flight deviation price is dynamic - it changes daily based on the actual cost of airfare.
If you are interested in spending additional time in South Africa, please contact us and we'll get you a flight deviation quote. Please note that the quote is only valid for 1 day. If you choose to proceed with booking extra time in South Africa, you'll need to confirm that you accept the flight deviation fee and we'll book your flight immediately. As this isn't part of our group booking, you will have to pay a non-refundable fee of $1800 in addition to the $500 deposit. This fee will be credited towards your trip balance, along with your deposit.
This extension includes hotel accommodation, airport transfer and revised flight. There are no tours scheduled.
Your flight home will leave Cape Town on April 26th, you will overnight in Johannesburg, and depart for Vancouver on April 27th. It is expected that you will arrive in Vancouver at 2:20pm on April 28th.
YK Chamber Means The World To Its Members:
"When you’re thinking about exotic travel, your first thought probably isn’t the Chamber of Commerce. But maybe it should be. In the past three years, the Yellowknife Chamber of Commerce has hosted tours that took Chamber members — and non-members — to China, Peru, Bali, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand.
While it may seem a bit unusual on its face, it’s actually nicely aligned with what the Chamber does for members. It uses its buying power to reduce costs for members, while providing an opportunity for networking and cementing relationships. And Chambers across North America are following suit, taking their members all over the world."
