Cheap Flights to Nelspruit Kruger

You don't want to pay the earth to fly to Nelspruit, and fortunately there is now competition on the route! Since November 2013 there are both SA Express and SA Airlink flights to Nelspruit's Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport.

Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport

Nelspruit (South Africa) is serviced by the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport (MQP). Unlike most airports in South Africa which are managed by ACSA, Nelspruit's Kruger Airport is privately managed by Primkop Airport Management (Pty) Ltd. The Kruger airport arose in 2002, when SanParks who ran the Skukuza Airport, agreed to shut it down for public traffic in return for being paid R5m to them by Dutch company PAM, who wanted to build the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport (the Competition commission ruled that this was in contravention of the act). PAM were fined R2m, and now today we have both flights to Nelspruit Kruger and to Skukuza.

Because of the lack of public transport, most people opt to hire a car. Here are your options for Kruger Airport car rentals:

Avis car rental

Budget car rental

Europcar hire

First Car Hire

Hertz car hire

Tempest car rental

Thrifty car rental

From the airport it's 15km to White Rive, 46km to Hazyview and 100km to Skukuza.

Holiday in Nelspruit

12 Nov 2013 : My best holiday ever was my holiday on a farm outside Nelspruit. I had the most amazing time there, met really lovely people. Saw places I would never seen again while with friends. The only let down was our trip to Kruger National Park was cancelled at the last moment. I've never seen animals walking free - only in cages so for me at 61 that would be such a wonderful thing. Nelspruit and the surrounding areas are too beautiful. I won't ever in my life be able to have a holiday again, so I treasure those memories of all I saw and did. Lyn Mack

Holiday in the Kruger

11 Nov 2013 : Myself and 3 best friends (including my mother) set off to Ngwenya Lodge just outside the Kruger National park. Our first visit to Nwenya Lodge and hopefully not the last. If we could afford it, we would have flown there which would have given us more time to explore the Kruger Park, but maybe next time....... The main reason why we booked at Ngwenya is because of it's proximity to the Kruger National park which is my favourite destination in SA. There is just this "magic" of the bushfeld that I can't explain. Just driving around in the Kruger Park and keeping your eyes peared to be the first one to spot the Big Five....the exitement when you spot that Lion, Rhino, Leopard, Elephant or Buffalo can't be described in words, but I'll try.......AMAZING, EXILIRATING, WONDERFULL! The peacefulness just being so close to your Maker and admiring His handywork is such a great privilege and something we take for granted most of the time. If I just had more leave days I will spend them all at the Kruger National Park, but I have to safe some days to go and visit my children living abroad, but when they come and visit me they share my love for the Kruger and we make a point of taking a few days to go and enjoy the Kruger Park together. Hopefully with my next visit I'll be able to afford flying down to the Kruger Park. Maggie
