Logistics of Getting from Singita to Jao

We are considering combining a Singita trip with Jao. What sort of travel arrangements could we/should we make? Would Singita or Jao be helpful in the matter, or are we on our own?

Many thanks!

From JNB you fly to Maun on Air Botswana (arrange r/t). Your booking for Jao should include your transfer from Maun to the Camp and return.

From Maun return fly to JNB where you can arrange a scheduled flight to Hoedspruit near Kruger and from there a land transfer to Singita. OR, you can contact Singita direct and ascertain their charge for a Charter from JNB direct to the Camp (even this requires a short ride from airstrip to camp) and the return.

Whether you do Singita first or Jao, in either case you'll have to transfer via JNB and due to schedules might require an overnight JNB. At the JNB airport is an Intercontinental Hotel across from the Int'l Terminal, or nearby, but on airport property via shuttle bus, there is a Holiday Inn which is less expensive.

Its very simple to book if you contact an South Africa based operator, who will be able to get into the Singita and Wilderness databases and advise on availability. There are lots of good operators. I have used Mark at Taga Safaris in the past, and he was excellent, and I'm sure others could advise other operators located in SA and the US.

Basically you have to think about spending a night in Johannesburg if you tale the scheduled airlines. Unfortunately they do not co-incide as Air Botswana arrives in the afternoon and there are no scheduled flights to Singita in the afternoon. So it becomes a toss up between over-nighting in Johannesburg or booking a private charter which is more expensive.
