The registration fee for Cosmology on Safari 2019 is R4500 (roughly 300 USD / 260 EUR; inclusive of road transfers to/from Durban, cocktail reception, and conference dinner), plus R1820 / R1200 per night (single / sharing rate, inclusive of all meals, mid-morning + afternoon snacks, plus two soft drinks; sharing rate has been cut in Nov 2018, and the new reduced rate applies to all who have registered so far). A number of optional excursions are available (game drives, bird / elephant / croc / wild cat tours, St Lucia river boat cruise etc.) – prices are given on the registration form.

South African students who require assistance with the registration fee should contact for more information about funding support options (we will contact students after the abstract submission deadline – 10 Dec 2018 – once we know how many students have registered and what support we can offer).
