Most visitors to Amakhala Game Reserve arrive via O.R. Tambo International Airport (JNB) in Johannesburg or Cape Town International Airport (CPT) in Cape Town. You may start your tour from either of these destinations by organized safari or by driving yourself. Many choose to drive via the Garden Route from Cape Town, taking a leisurely week or two to do so before arriving at Amakhala.

Domestic Flights

Tour operators can arrange charter flights to parks and accommodations for you as part of your tour package. As an alternative to driving, you can take a flight from Johannesburg or Cape Town to Port Elizabeth Airport (PLZ), where you can rent a car. The distance from Port Elizabeth to the park is about 70km/43mi on a paved road. There are several domestic carriers through which scheduled flights to Port Elizabeth may be booked, as well.
