Skukuza Airport (SZK) is a little airport in the Kruger National Park in Mpumalanga. Set within the bush of the Sabi Sands, the runway is so tiny, its barely visible from the air - and you'll have plenty of fun trying to spot game as you land. It's probably one of the most beautiful airports you will ever visit with giant globe chandeliers, African decor, and a life-sized statue of a rhino guiding you through the short and stress-free walk from plane to baggage collection (which is really just a man carrying your bags through a small hole in the wall and setting them on a wooden platform under a thatched roof). There's barely a wait for your bags but keep an eye out for the Vervet monkeys who are ready to grab hold of a shiny object if you're not careful.
The airport is the easiest and fastest way to travel to one of the largest natural wildlife reserves in the world, allowing more time to enjoy your holiday. Airlink is the only airline offering direct flights to and from Cape Town and Johannesburg with only one flight to and from each city a day. A short air transfer from Skukuza Airport to Nelspruit KMIA will allow you to connect conveniently to Livingstone (Zambia) and Vilanculos (Mozambique). Charter flights with Federal Airlines are also available.
