Good people, good food. Head chef/taxi driver/new letter publisher, has a tendency to publicise a pilots landing ‘transgressions’, tell them you are arriving 30 minutes later then planned! ;->
rough as a bears ass
Land, taxi to within 50 meters of your room, dine on the finest Karoo lamb, then have a sundowner in the old tower.
Taxi to Southern sand apron, park, walk through South Eastern gate and do your weekend shopping at the SPAR. 50/100 meters, remember to return the shopping cart, and pay your landing fees (R50 for singles), at the honesty box close to the gate.
Field managed by Botash, Prior permission normally required, no fuel (mogas per jerry can), hanger / shade for the use of Botash aircraft don’t park there (unless you are Botash).
Accommodation at the Chilly Pot (S20 32' 49.4",E026 04' 44.7") 3.4 km by road to the NWW ,reasonable & clean (Not up market) rooms (Pre-Fab buildings), food good, aircons broken. You will fly final approach over it if you are landing from the west.
Civilian apron is on North Eastern side, Fuel available most of the time, customs office on Easter edge and landing fees and flight plans can be paid / submitted in offices on northern side. Pax not to take photos on flight side.
1 km walk via a sand road to the SW of the field to get to the hotel, airport tax's payable before departure. Arrange that the attendand be there, or you could be in for a long wait.
Have a habit of using obscure routing/reporting points
2 km walk to the Wimpy in town, and it will be hot and sweaty, or cold and damp.
Caution! Power line on approaches
Permission should be obtained from Eskom Tutuka Power station prior to using this field under normal circumstances.
Permission should be obtained from Eskom Majuba Power station prior to using this field under normal circumstances.
re: No info
This site largely caters for pilot's and gives very meaningifull/usefull information to us. I do not believe it was intended as passenger information service.
re: Airport information - flights to Durban
This airport has no scheduled flight service. All aircraft operating from here are private.

Land 26, take-off 08, avoid low flying over the falls.
A 'wide' right base for 26 will provide a good view of the falls without causing offence.
