Pietersburg Airport Mini Guide

Why do People fly to Pietersburg Airport?
The area around Polokwane is crammed with nature reserves of all kinds. The Modjardji Rainforest Park has the largest collection of cycads in the world whilst the Moletzie Bird Sanctuary has nearly 300 species of birds living there and protected. Africa’s larger animals are also a key draw, both for those wanting great photographs and for hunters who flock to the most popular hunting region of South Africa.

What is the Airport Like?
It’s very small but also very busy. On weekdays, four flights arrive and depart with Airlink to Johannesburg Airport and at weekends there’s a single flight on Saturday plus two on Sundays. Some work was carried out when the airport transformed from a military one to a commercial airport but little has been done since. Nevertheless, over 45,000 passengers used it last year for access to the nature of the Limpopo region.

What are the Facilities Like?
The facilities at Pietersburg Airport are very limited but then you’ll find you are not in the airport for any length of time. With no security worries to slow your transit, many people are in and out of the airport within an hour. For travellers there is a selection of vending machines selling drinks and packaged snacks but little else other than hawkers selling trinkets and local souvenirs to obvious tourists. 

Latest Update from Polokwane Airport:

07/06/12 - Increasing passenger arrivals at this small airport have put pressure on car hire availability. You'll need four wheeled drive here and unless you want to end up with a sub compact, then it's vital you pre-book your car hire requirements.
