Overland: Oliver Tambo International Airport (JNB)

On planning to depart on a safari directly off your international flight arriving at Oliver Tambo International Airport (JNB) in Johannesburg, you need to ensure you book a flight that arrives as early in the morning as possible; say 7.00 - 7.30am. With domestic flights book to arrive 8.00 - 8.30am at the very latest. We'll meet you off your international or domestic flight and start your safari.

If your planning means you are unable to arrive early, we suggest you:

A) Book a domestic flight from Oliver Tambo Int Airport (JNB) to Kruger Mpumalanga Int Airport (KMIA) or Mpumalanga Airport (MQP) for Kruger Park or Hoedspruit Airport (HDS) for Sabi Sand Reserve - see below for more on fly-in

B) Book up accommodation at a B&B, guest lodge or hotel near to Oliver Tambo Int Airport or in an area called Sandton, for the rest of the day/night. We'll start your safari from where you stayed, the next morning at 7.00 - 7.30am.

Note: Sandton is an exclusive area in the Northern suburbs of Johannesburg with restaurants, quality shopping malls and many other facilities. For hotels in Sandton or near to Oliver Tambo Int Airport, we recommend the following hotels as they suit different budgets: Road Lodge, Town Lodge or City Lodge - www.citylodge.co.za This hotel group offers an airport shuttle service.

We will contact you at your hotel the evening before, to confirm the mornings collection time. If you are out for dinner we will leave a message. In general your Safari Ranger will pick you up in the morning between 7.00 - 7.30am, with an earlier collection in the morning on our walking safaris, between 5.00 - 6.00am.

Note - very important.

1) For the best domestic flight deals we recommend YOU book directly with one of the above airlines off their website or off one of the following online booking services:

2) If you have flights already booked, we will co-ordinate the starting & finishing of your safari to suit your flight arrival and departure times. Just let us know your flight details with your initial safari enquiry.

3) Travelling the 4/5 hours overland from Jo'burg to the Kruger Park or the Sabi Sands passes by very quickly. On route you will have the opportunity to see more of scenic South Africa and enjoy chatting to your Safari Ranger as he/she introduces you to the experiences and sites you can expect to see on your safari.

4) Our fly-in safari prices promoted on our website do not include the cost of domestic flights.

5) The Panoramic Route is only included on the overland safaris as it forms part of the returning journey back to Jo'burg or Pretoria.

6) Meeting up at any airport is easy. After you have collected your baggage, continue to walk through the arrival gates and you will see your Safari Ranger dressed in Safari Rangers uniform holding a board with your name on. You will not miss seeing your Safari Ranger!

7) Our overland safaris arrive back in Jo'burg for approx 6.00pm. You will need to book flights out from Oliver Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg (JNB) for around 7.30 - 8.30pm. This gives you time to check in, have something to eat and spend some time shopping at duty free.

8) When travelling overland back to Jo'burg, we will always make sure you are in time for your flight. There is no need to be concerned about missing a flight out of Jo'burg. It is of course important with your safari planning to make sure you allow for the relevant number of hours to 'check in' for your flight. You would need your airline to confirm this to you.
