First, you have to get yourself to Africa. Johannesburg, South Africa. You can fly in to Cape Town on a South African Airways flight from Atlanta. That's my choice for the future. A good travel service can make the arrangements. Likely you will fly for a long time on very large jets.
A change of planes in Johannesburg and you find yourself on a new, nice Dash 8 operated by South African Airways. A 50 passenger prop plane. About an hour flight, a cold drink, a sandwich and your plane lands at Skukuza, the airport for Kruger National Park. Very hard working flight attendants!
You are far away from big city life at Skukuza. The terminal building has a thatch roof. The baggage handlers shake your hand as they hand you your tiny bag (weight limits are severe for the next leg of your journey.)
Your game preserve will meet you nest to a 'meeting post'. Each place has its own 'meeting post.' Londolozi, Mala Mala, Sabi Sands, etc. A kind woman will ofter your muchies and another cold drink, beer if you please. You will have a few minutes for shopping and then.....
Weather providing, you step down in size of airplane again. This time to a 12 passenger King Air for a 6 to 10 minute flight to Londolozi. At this point, I'm really getting excited. Let's do it!
All of our flights were comfortable, service was very good and once in Africa, the views were wonderful. Do not over pack. Save your baggage weight for your camera gear.
Attire, is all safari casual. No point in packing fancy clothes. You will need a jacket, hat etc in cooler weather. Also appropriate protection against mosquitos.
Incredible! I love airplanes! I love flying! I love Londolozi! I'm ready to return or to another CC Africa property.
