Getting to Kruger airport fom Tamboti Tented Camp

Three of us need to get from Tamboti Tented Camp in October to the Kruger airport for flight to Livingstone departing 11.35am. How long would it take to get their by road and what if any choices of transport can be used? What is the condition of the road like? We will have arrived in a rental vehicle but it is going back to Pretoria/Johanesburg and wondered if anything else would be available like shuttles etc. If we go back with the others in the rental and get dropped off at airport does it add much on to the journey and what time would we need to be at the airport for checkin? Any info would be appreciated. cheers

Do you mean the airport at Nelspruit? If you leave the park at Orpen gate (very close to Tamboti) and head down to Nelspruit via Hoedspruit it would probably take 2-3 hours all being well.

If the rental vehicle has to continue with others back to Johannesburg, then they have to either go via that route anyway or take their time and drive down through the park and exit at one of the southern gates. However, it would take too long to do that and still be able to get you to the airport in good time for your flight.

I don't know of any shuttles or other transport options to get you there. It would be better to end your stay in a camp further south in the park so that you could get up early and game drive to the nearest gate like Malelane and then be dropped off at KMIA and the others could continue on to Johannesburg.

Hello, contact Fanie at ecoaches, they run a service all over that area, and if anyone can help you, its him. michele@ecoaches.co.za is the mail address and they are based in White River which is very close to the Nelspruit airport called KMIA. Another person to try is venisha@funtimetours.co.za. They have vehicles in that area, and could probably help you as well.
