Below you will find some tips and advice about Honeymooning in the Kruger National Park.

What requirements are needed to enter South Africa?

  • A valid and acceptable passport. Your passport should be valid for at least 30 days beyond your intended date of exit from South Africa. However, some immigration officials still request that a passport would have at least 6 months validity on the date of entry to South Africa.  To avoid problems at the airport on arrival, you are advised to ensure your passport meets these requirements.
  • At least one blank page in your passport for endorsements.
  • A valid visa, if required.
  • Sufficient funds to pay for your day-to-day expenses during your stay. The currency used in South Africa is ZAR also known as the Rand.  Debit or credit cards are also welcome, but it is absolutely advisable to bring some RAND with you for any gratuities, cash purchases, etc.
  • A return or onward ticket.

What about Malaria prophylactics – are these to be taken when visiting the Kruger National Park?

Even though the risk of malaria is usually low, I always advise my clients to be on the safe side and rather take malaria prophylactics.

The choice of the appropriate drug that an individual should use is a decision that should be made in consultation with your medical practitioner or travel clinic. 

Entry Airports in South Africa and how do you get from these airports to the Kruger

There are a few ways of getting to Kruger. Most trips usually start or end in Johannesburg or Cape Town.

  • Flying to Kruger Airports from Johannesburg or Cape Town

Flights operate daily from Johannesburg and Cape Town to Hoedspruit Airport, Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport (MQP)  and Skukuza Airport.  These are the main airports used to get clients to the Kruger lodges.

On arrival at the above airports, clients are met and transferred by road to their lodge.  This transfer can be between 1, 2 or 3 hours each way.

  • Flying Directly to your Safari Lodge Airstrip (Scheduled Chartered Flight)

Flights operate daily from Johannesburg.  This is the easiest and most convenient way to travel to the park.  Flying time is approximately 90 minutes.  You land at the lodge airstrip. A representative or ranger from your lodge will meet you at the airstrip and transfer you in a game drive vehicle directly to your lodge.

Best of all – your trusted travel consultant will include all these flights into your itinerary – so no need for you to worry about flights and transfers!
