Finally…

In each of the above cases, please call Kulula’s Contact Centre on 0861 KULULA (585852) to organise payment of the handling fee – the handling fee must be paid before dropping your bike at your drop-off zone.

Bike’s will not be released to friends or family and they must be collected no later than 19 March 2014. For those travelling from East London and George, please call Kulula’s Contact Centre to make arrangements for Argus bicycle transport as Kulula does not fly direct to Cape Town from these cities.
