Regional South African airline Airlink has extended its Lowveld ‘Lodge Link’ safari lodge network in partnership with andBeyond.
The network will provide daily connections between andBeyond’s Ngala Safari Lodge and Ngala Tented Camp in the Timbavati, Kirkman’s Kamp in the Sabi Sand and the six lodges in andBeyond Phinda Private Game Reserve.
The lodge network will also provide direct connections with Airlink’s regional services from Nelspruit to Vilanculos (Mozambique), the gateway to andBeyond Benguerra Island, and Livingstone (Zambia), which provides access to andBeyond Matetsi Private Game Reserve.
Connections can be made from Cape Town and Johannesburg on Airlink to Nelspruit KMIA or Skukuza Airport, with a short apron transfer connecting guests onwards to Airlink’s Lodge Link service direct to their safari destination, thereby minimizing lengthy road transfers.
Airlink’s Lodge Link flights are operated with brand new twin pilot Cessna Grand Caravan 208BEX 12 seater turbo-prop aircraft, which are equipped with advanced avionics essential to achieving reliable performance during the low cloud weather for which the Lowveld is renowned.
