Update on Skukuza Airport and Jock Safari Lodge

May 27, 2014 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

The new upgraded Skukuza Airport will be fully operational from June 2014. For now Jock Safari Lodge, part of Shamwari Group, in the Kruger National Park will continue to do its own road transfers to and from the airport in open game drive vehicles, by a qualified ranger.

Upon collection from the airport the adventure begins and refreshments will be served on the journey to the lodge.

Operators are welcome to book these transfers with Jock Safari Lodge and the cost is R300 per person, each way. There is an additional charge of R90 per person for airport tax which is payable  to and at Skukuza Airport, however the transfers must be pre booked and prepaid to Jock Safari Lodge through Shamwari Group Central Reservations.

With the Skukuza Airport fully operational it will ensure less time travelling for guests as it is only a 1 hour road transfer from the airport to Jock Safari Lodge, whereas the KMIA is 2-3 hours. It is a cost effective way for guests to travel and once guests have landed inside the Kruger National Park they are able to experience game viewing straight away. Further information regarding flights from Durban-Skukuza-Durban return, shall be announced in the near future.

Below is a flight schedule for Skukuza Airport and flights can be booked through Air Link.
