Getting to SBLSC


International flights arrive into Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town from all over the world. The fastest way to arrive from any of these places is to book a flight to Richards Bay (via Johannesburg).

If you are flying into Johannesburg, the fastest way to arrive is to book an internal flight to Richards Bay then to hire a car and drive to Sodwana (roughly 2 hours).

If you are flying into Durban (King Shaka International) then hire a car and drive to Sodwana, this will take you a little less than 4 hours).

Cape Town, whilst a world class destination is not the ideal arrival spot for a quick trip to Sodwana. It is possible to book an internal flight to Richards Bay and then hire a car, but the only real reason to visit Cape Town first is to visit Cape Town first.

As an internal traveller Sodwana is poorly served by Public Transport apart from the ubiquitous taxis. Whilst we would not recommend the use of taxis it is possible for the brave at heart.

Sodwana Bay Lodge can organise transfers from airports, although these tend to be expensive and a hired car may be cheaper and offer more freedom. Feel free to contact us for more information.
