Your flight to South Africa
There are 12 international airports around the country which makes your South African safari and car hire that much easier to plan if you are travelling in from another country or reqion.

Scroll down the page to choose your airline, car hire or hotel.

When you've chosen
your safari destination make sure that the airport you use is conveniently located as near as possible to your game reserve or National Park. If necessary, a connecting flight could be arranged to take you from a major airport to a smaller regional one nearby.

If you intend arranging a Kruger National Park safari for example, the nearest major airport is O.R Tambo (formerly known as Johannesburg International Airport) in Johannesburg. From there, if you intend to fly, you would get a connecting flight to Kruger-Mpumalanga or
KMIA private airport which is just outside Nelspruit. An ideal base for exploring the southern regions of the Kruger Park game reserve.

Flights to South Africa

For your Cape Town safari you would arrive at Cape Town International Airport CTA which is not far from the city.
A popular private game reserve is situated only 2 hours drive away. It's a ideal opportunity to combine your tour of the Cape with a worthwhile Big 5 safari.

Port Elizabeth Airport is your nearest airport if you're taking a safari at Shamwari or at the Addo Elephant National Park. And should you be going to see the endangered rhino conservation program at the Hluhluwe Game Reserve, Durban International Airport DIA is your starting point.

Here's a list of international airports in South Africa.

Cheaper flights to South Africa
Once you've decided what time of year you want to visit South Africa for your wildlife safari or for holiday travel, then it's time to look at your airline ticket options.

Booking your flight ticket to South Africa online
One of the best ways to find and book a cheap flight is by using an online system which searches for and compares the rates charged by all the airlines servicing south Africa on the route you require. You simply enter your departure and arrival points and the dates of your flights, and you are presented with a list of the different airline ticket rates. You then select and book the airline you require. I have placed such a script to the right of this text. Also use it to search for hotels and car hire at cheaper rates.

We look forward to welcoming you to South Africa!
