Airfare

In order to coordinate airport transfers, please consult with Marathon Tours & Travel prior to booking your international airline tickets.  You can reach us at 617.242.7845 or ann@marathontours.com. 

For the Comrades Basic Package you need to arrive and depart from King Shaka International Airport in Durban.  Airport Code: DUR.

For the extension packages to Kruger, there are two airport arrival and departure options.  We highly recommend you coordinate these flights with our travel specialist, Ann due to strict game park arrival and departure times.

Important Travel Notes (per U.S. regulations): Airline ticket names need to match your passport exactly.  All passports need to have a blank page for visa space as well as a validity date of six months from the date your trip departs.  If your passport expires less than six months prior to the departure of this tour (December 2017), you need to renew this passport for valid travel.
