Charter Flights

Convenience has never been easier and guests now have the option of direct flights between Virginia Airport (about 15 minutes from Durban’s King Shaka Intl) and the new Mkuze Airport.  Additionally a pickup or drop-off can be requested from King Shaka International itself.  For routing purposes guests can choose between a 50 minute direct flight, or go with a slightly longer scenic flight along the spectacular northern KZN coastline.

Lodge transfers between Mkuze Airport and Zimanga Lodge are included in the charter, with your game viewing vehicle and guide waiting for you at the airport allowing you to be in Zimanga in no time with nearby access through a new purpose-built gate and scenic road, meandering past some spectacular spots on the reserve, with the opportunity to spot some of the plentiful wildlife along this road.

Please note that for safety, strict limitations are in place in terms of weather and weight restrictions.

This air charter is available for additional destinations should transfers be required from Zimanga to other reserves
