Flights from Johannesburg
From OR Tambo Johannesburg International Airport it is possible to travel to Hoedspruit Eastgate Airport (HDS), Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport (MQP) and Phalaborwa Airport (PHW). From all airports it is possible to continue the journey to your Timbavati safari lodge by road transfer. We recommend flying directly from Johannesburg or Cape Town to Hoedspruit, as this is the nearest airport and is serviced twice daily.
The road transfer from Hoedspruit to Timbavati takes around one hour, making it an ideal destination for a safari near Johannesburg.
Flights from Cape Town
Another possibility is to travel from Cape Town to Hoedspruit Eastgate Airport on a scheduled flight.
Flights by private charter
Certain lodges in the Timbavati have private airstrips. Private air charters are also available. Johannesburg is an excellent starting point and guests can fly straight to the lodge or to nearby Hoedspruit Airport. Transfers to the Timbavati lodges and back can be organised around flight times.
