How to Get There

Fly In

Fly to Johannesburg’s O R Tambo International Airport with British Airways, KLM, Emirates, Swiss Air, Virgin Atlantic or Lufthansa to name but a few. From Johannesburg or Cape Town International Airport fly with SA Airlink or Federal Air to Skukuza or Nelspruit Airports.

Ulusaba is approximately a 1 hour 20 minute flight from O R Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg flying by twin-engine aircraft, or 20 minutes from Skukuza via a charter air hop, which are the best airports to use if travelling from other destinations within South Africa. Ulusaba has her own private airstrip and there are daily scheduled and charter flights available. Get a window seat – the view’s terrific!

On arrival at either airport you will be met by your guide who will drive you to the lodge. As this is a game drive the duration depends on game seen en route.
