Top places to visit close to Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport (KMIA)
Kruger National Park
As the name suggests, our Avis KMIA branch is your gateway to one of Africa’s best-loved game reserves – open to day-visitors as well as those who are fortunate enough to be staying awhile. If you only have a few hours to spare, you can still experience the thrill of a game drive in this iconic park from Numbi Gate, just 44km along the R40 from our Avis KMIA branch.
Shangana Cultural Village
Find out how the locals used to live just a little further along the R40 at the Shangana Cultural Village. This friendly and informal setting showcases the customs and history of a local tribe, and you can even pick up some authentic African bead and artwork at the central market place.
Turn your Avis hire car in the other direction and travel for 45 km along the R40 towards the historic town of Barberton and you will come across a unique animal experience at Chimp Eden. Take a tour of this chimpanzee rehabilitation centre set up by Jane Goodall to see these amazing primates at leisure, and learn how the centre goes about rescuing them from the illegal pet and bush meat industries.
If you have a little more time on your hands, head along the N4 in your Avis hire car to take a trip into the depths of the earth at Sudwala Cave. This is one of the oldest cave systems on earth estimated to be around 3 000 million years of age.
