Another cheaper option is to add
the insurance when you book your flight. That would only cover the cost of the
flight (not the $3200) of the trip, but it does give you medical and emergency
coverage during the trip.
Feel free to check through any
insurance you already have, but you should have something.
The Kruger Park
region of South Africa is a known malaria region. You may or may not decide to
take precautions, but we recommend you discuss this with your medical
Delta has a
non-stop flight from Atlanta to Johannesburg leaving and arriving in the
evening. South African Airways (United partner) has an evening nonstop from
Washington Dulles. Fares change constantly. At the moment the Delta fares are
quite high. Right now South African has a fare of $1161 from Washington to
Johannesburg roundtrip which is good.
Also Delta partner
flights via Amsterdam or Paris are quite a bit less than via Atlanta, but they
tend to arrive quite a bit later in the evening than the ATL or IAD flights.
When you do go to
book your flight, be sure to depart the US 20.November and arrive the evening
of 21.November. At the end of the trip book for a departure of Saturday,
December 4 afternoon/evening, which will put you back in the States on December
5. Be careful of the dates of flights departing after midnight!
I will continue
to watch airfares and let you know if a special comes up.
