Getting There – Kwandwe GR
When visiting Kwandwe, most people fly into O.R. Tambo International Airport (JNB) in Johannesburg or Cape Town International Airport (CPT) in Cape Town. This could be the starting point for an organized safari, or you could opt for a self-drive package. The Garden Route is an attractive way to travel from Cape Town and it may take a week or two before arriving at Kwandwe.
Please check Skyscanner, or for multiple-destination flights check Expedia, to see which airlines can take you to O.R. Tambo International Airport (JNB) or Cape Town International Airport (CPT), and what tickets would cost.
You can fly from Port Elizabeth to the park. From Port Elizabeth Airport (PLZ) you fly directly to Kwandwe Airstrip, which takes about 30 minutes. These flights are scheduled to arrive in time for the afternoon game drive. A road transfer from Port Elizabeth is also possible. The distance is about 160km/100mi and takes about 1¾ hours. There are several options for booking domestic flights to Port Elizabeth (see below). Most charter flights are arranged by your tour operator as part of your safari package.
