OWN ROAD TRANSPORT
Tembe is a four-and-a-half-hour drive on a tarred road from Durban - or a six hour drive from Johannesburg, Gauteng. Once you arrive at Tembe’s gate, you will be met and directed to the secure parking area where you can safely leave your vehicle for the duration of your stay. From there, you will be driven in a 4x4 to the lodge. From then on all game-drives and transport around the lodge are provided under the supervision of an experienced guide.
ROAD TRANSPORT FROM DURBAN
Visitors requiring transport from Durban will be met either at Durban International airport, their hotel or preferred pick-up point and driven to Tembe in a luxury air-conditioned vehicle. All game drives and transport within the park are provided. Visitors are returned to Durban at the end of their stay.
AIR TRANSFERS PRIVATE CHARTER
If required, a return air-service is can be chartered from Virginia Airport, just north of Durban, direct to the airstrip at Tembe or to the neighbouring Manguzi airstrip, depending on weather conditions. Again, all road transport to and from the park is provided, as well as within the park for the duration of your stay. This is a great way to experience Africa from the sky and another bonus is that you land within the Tembe Elephant Reserve itself!
