Skukuza Airport Sabi Sands
Easy flight access into Kruger and southern Sabi Sands
Since June 2014 it is possible to arrive in either Johannesburg or Cape Town in the morning and enjoy your first Sabi Sands game drive in the afternoon. From that date the only airport located in Kruger National Park has been reopened and is serviced by scheduled daily non-stop flights from Johannesburg and Cape Town.
Access to lodges from Skukuza
Skukuza Sabi Sands Airport (SZK) is the the most convenient access airport for lodges located in the southern sector of the Sabi Sands. We recommend travelling via Skukuza when staying at Notten's Bush Camp, Lion Sands Game Reserve, Sabi Sabi Game Reserve, Kirkman's Kamp, Tengile River Lodge and MalaMala Game Reserve.
Travelling from Skukuza to Sabi Sands
We are happy to assist with road transfers from Skukuza Airport to your Sabi Sands lodge (only in combination with a lodge reservation). Please allow a transfer time of approximately 1 to 1.5 hours one way. Airlink lodge link flights to the Arathusa, Ulusaba and Londolozi airstrips are also available. Some car rental companies have branch offices at Skukuza Airport.
