An important gateway to Kruger National Park, Phalaborwa Airport (sometimes called Hendrick Van Eck Airport) flies mainly to Johannesburg. Tourists can disembark here and connect to the national park with car hire in Phalaborwa Airport. With a hire car, they enjoy optimal mobility and the chance to freely explore everything the park has to offer.
Kruger National Park is one of South Africa's most popular tourist destinations. It hosts an impressive collection of African animals including lions, gazelles, elephants, leopards and rhinoceroses. The weather in the park is hot, and the air-conditioned environment of a car hire at Phalaborwa Airport is worth the investment.
The airport is just across the western border from the park along R71. Leave the main highway at Exit 2 and drive north along President Styn Street for to reach the terminal building. Cheap car hire at Phalaborwa Airport offers more competitive rates than the offerings found inside the park.
Roads within the park are in excellent condition, with maps available at all of the gates and park offices. R71 also heads west into the countryside and passes other game reserves and rustic outposts along the way. Tourists rarely venture this way, as the park is so expansive and well-maintained.
The only flights offered at Phalaborwa Airport connect to Johannesburg. There are generally two flights per day, with fewer offered during the weekend. Several car hire firms have desks in the Arrivals area.
Frequently asked questions

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.
What do I need to do when picking up a car?
To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
