Getting Here and Around

There are daily flights from Johannesburg, Durban, and Cape Town to Port Elizabeth. Air charters from Port Elizabeth to Samara (gravel airstrip) can be arranged on request; it's a 45-minute drive from the airstrip to the reserve. Transfers to and from the airport or airstrip can be arranged through the reserve.

The drive from Port Elizabeth should take about three hours. Take the R75 toward Graaff-Reinet for 258 km (160 mi). Turn right onto the R63 toward Pearston/Somerset East for 7 km (4 mi). Turn left onto the Petersburg gravel road and drive 23 km (14 mi) to reach Karoo Lodge.
