Most people fly into Johannesburg's O.R. Tambo International Airport (JNB) and from there take a flight to Eastgate Airport in Hoedspruit. This airport is just minutes from the reserve, and Kapama includes free airport transfers to any of the lodges in the reserve.

Kapana now offers packages including flights, using its own 8-seater aircraft from O.R. Tambo International Airport (JNB) in Johannesburg or Cape Town International Airport (CPT) to its private airstrip.
