With increasing availability of air shuttles like Federal Air to the larger Kruger region and several other luxury game lodges, many travellers wonder whether they should look at air or road transport for their trip.


The answer is simple: it depends on your needs.

If you are on your own and would like to squeeze a quick visit to a game reserve into a tight business schedule, the air option might work best for you. For one person, fees will be cheaper than a road transfer and you would save precious time that you could spend game watching. Also, it is less tiring if you need to reserve energy for clinching that important business deal.

However, parties of two people or more should look at both options. From three people or more, road transport will definitely be cheaper. If you opt for a private, door-to-door transfer, you have the convenience of being picked up from your doorstep and dropped off exactly where you want to be with no hassles with being transported from the airport to the lodge, for example.

Although it will take longer to get to your destination, with no set schedules you can take full advantage of planning the journey the way you want it. You can enjoy the scenery, stop at points of interest to stretch your legs and have a bite to eat. And the driving is taken care of, so everyone can have a beer or a glass of wine (or two), relax and enjoy the views or catch up on some shut-eye in your comfortable, air-conditioned sedan or minibus.


Whichever option you choose, call Rhino Shuttles to book your trip – whether it’s to the airport or the game lodge of your choice.
