Suggestions on high airfare from Mala Mala-capetown Joberg

Just found out my airfare for this leg of my trip is close to 1500USD for two. Any suggestions about other options? I am travelling on Air France Milage, so the normal south african airways discount wont apply

Try flying with Kulula.com Cape Town to Kruger Mpumalanga international (MQP). Alternately look at nationwides offer.
I believe that SA Express or it might be SA Airlink has a daily flight CTN to MQp to.

Naturally these suggestions terminate outside Mala Mala, however if you do not want to either drive yourself or take a ground from there, which is about 2 hrs, you could look into Fed Air or Sefofane providing you with a short hop to Mala's airstrip. The cost for the latter is just on $100.

Hope that helps?

Very helpful. Travel agents original quote was $750 per person from MPQ to Capetown, just found it for $750 for two on South African Airlines. I just need to get to Mqp from Mala Mala, which as you said is not too hard. The flight also leaves at 2pm, so I dont have miss the morning game drive. Is the drive to Mqp at all interesting? Or should we just fly.
