2012 International Aquarium Congress: Experience South Africa

30 July 2012 | Leon Jamarie

Although you may be travelling to South Africa to discuss, interrogate and reach consensus around aquarium issues, a trip to explore the country is highly recommended. If you’re one of the early birds heading to this diverse country and are in need of some ideas, or whether you fall in love and want to spend a few days longer (it happens), we have put together 12 special travel packages through which you can explore beautiful South Africa.

South Africa has three world class international airports from which you can enter and leave the country: Cape Town International Airport (Cape Town), OR Tambo Airport (Johannesburg) and King Shaka International Airport (Durban). The 2012 International Aquarium Congress (IAC) is offering tour packages to each of these regions, making it convenient for you if you are already travelling in the area.
