Flight to KMG Safaris??
Im looking into hunting with Marius at KMG safaris and he told me that I had to take another flight once I landed in Johannesburg. Does anyone know what town that was for the last flight? I thought it was port isabel but i cant find any flights to it.
It's Port Elizabeth and it shouldn't cost too much. It's hard to fly into Tambo and catch the flight in the same day. Clearing customs is the hard part.
So say if im coming in the 14th of june i should leave the 12th or 13th? this is my first time traveling to africa so i have no clue when to book the flight. This is also my first time out of the States
Remember you lose 9 hours in timer zones heading east.
Let your travel agent or airline know when you need to be on the ground at KMG.
South Africa Airways (SAA) and OTHERS have flights to Port Elizabeth or PE (PLZ) from Johannesburg ORTambo (JNB).
As E says customs clearance will likely be the issue when transiting.
It's hard to say without looking at the airline schedule. I think it's wise to use a travel agent to sort everything out. Lori's link on this webpage is a good start.
I used the rifle clearance using PHASA and easily made the connection to Port Elizabeth the same night with much time to spare. without the phasa service, I wouldn't have likely made it in time.
You will either overnight in Johan or in Port Eliz. I was glad we made it thru the same night, but I'm used to traveling. About 40 mission trips to Russia, Ukraine, china, etc. Marius collected us that night, got us to a guest house in Port Eliz and got an early start the next morning. we made it to his concession, sited in the rifles and got in a half-day hunting for free. :)

Either way, you will be well taken care of if you let Marius handle those details/decisions about what would be best in your case.
Hope you have an awesome trip with him, we sure did.
I think that is smart option, the less time you spend JNB, the better off you are. Port Elizabeth is nice!
