The activities above last 3 hours, and are open to school groups of up to 80 learners from Grades R to 12 every weekday. A normal 3 hour visit costs R 10 per learner, to be paid as a lump sum by the teacher on arrival (NOT individually by each learner). TWO teachers per group of 80 learners will be allowed free entrance, additional teachers will pay R 10 each. There is a minimum charge of R 300 per group (even if the group is fewer than 40 learners). Cheques should be made out to “University of Zululand Foundation”.


(Groups from outside the Zululand area will pay R 12 per learner! The real cost to us is R 65 per learner!)


As you will probably travel a long way to RichardsBay, we strongly recommend you make the most of your trip by participating in all the activities above. Such a visit will last four hours, preferably from 9:00 - 13:00. This will allow your learners a lunch break before any other visits or activities. If you cannot make it by 9:00, special arrangements for your visit will have to be made. You do not have to attend all the above activities, and are welcome to leave some out if you need a shorter visit (but the price will be the same). Please enquire for more details).
