<Per diem>

Daily allowance will be paid to CARD-sponsored participants based on the CARD standard rate for the entire duration of your journey.

 

<Accommodation>

For CARD-sponsored participants, a room will be booked at a nearby hotel.  The hotel details will be informed by AfricaRice in due course.

 

We also recommend self-sponsored participants to stay at the same hotel so that AfricaRice can arrange hotel-venue transport for you.

 

<Local transport>

AfricaRice will arrange transport services between airport-hotel-AfricaRice.  For non-sponsored participants staying at other hotels will have to arrange local transportation at their ends.
