How to get from Kruger NP to Chobe NP

Dear all,

I will be visiting Kruger NP next Easter, but would like to also see Chobe NP in Botswana, however, I cannot find a flight between the two places. Can anyone suggest another method of travelling between Kruger and Kasane? Would driving there be a possibility? Any advice greatly received. Thank you!

Hi Christina,

The quickest way would be to fly on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday from Nelspruit/MQP to Livingstone/LVI. The flight is operated by SA Airlink and leaves MQP at 1135am arriving in LVI at 150pm. MQP is about 2.5 hours from the Southern part of the Kruger or the Sabi Sands. From LVI it is a 60km road and boat transfer to Kasane. The transfer costs USD 55-80 per person for shared services depending on the company you book with.

All other options would route you through Johannesburg with a likely overnight.

Hello Craig,

This particular flight you mention is already fully booked, unfortunately, otherwise it would have been ideal. I wish I had booked it a few months ago when I first saw it and planned my itinerary around it!

I'm really stuck now and may have to reconsider going that way at all as my dates aren't flexible.

Thanks anyway, the information is really useful.

If you are not on safari the morning you leave the Kruger area you can take an early morning flight from MQP to Jo'burg and catch one of the four flights from JNB to VFA or LVI per day?

There are also flights to from Johannesburg to Kasane direct (Friday, Sunday , Monday, Wednesday) on Air Botswana that are excellent value and save you a road transfer fee and visa fee for Zimbabwe/Zambia.

So you fly to Kruger (there is an early flight from Nelspruit that allows you to connect same day - provided you can get to Nelspruit that early!) and then you fly from Joburg - Kasane on Air Botswana.

Regards

The Jo'burg/Kasane flight does sometimes make "surprise" stops in Gaborone/GBE.
