Hello All -
We will be arriving on an SAA flight from Upington into J'burg International Airport on Mar 8 -scheduled to arrive at 11.35am. We'd then like to get to Madikwe (deciding between 3 lodges at the moment). Does anyone know if Federal Air and Madikwe Air/Charter/Shuttle are the same operations? Lodges have referred to both. Also, do you know if their flights are always on time? I'm trying to figure if we can get off the SAA flight and connect with the flights to Madikwe - and the departure times for that seem to vary from 11.15am to 12noon, depending on which lodge I'm talking to.
I also read one place that Madikwe flights leave from Grand Central Airport; another source said Tambo?
Our alternative is getting a road transfer - if you have any info on that, would greatly appreciate input! We've been quoted R1700 - 2400 for 2 people, one way. Anyone know if it's generally safe?
thanks - our first time to Africa and we're really excited!
