Transport / Travel

Your final destination will be OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg (Gauteng province) or Polokwane International Airport in Polokwane (Limpopo province). The majority of international hunting clients will fly from their country of origin into South Africa on a major international airline.  Arrangements can be made to collect clients from OR Tambo International Airport or Polokwane International Airport.  Collecting clients from OR Tambo: travelling time around 4,5 hours via road.  Should you fly from OR Tambo to Polokwane International Airport, we will shuttle you via road from there to Lubeksdal – about 2 hours travelling time.  Upon arrival at the airport you will be met by Lubeksdal staff.
