You go to Eurowings Discover and are then redirected to the Lufthansa Page (click on - book)
I am not sure whether you can start the flight in SA - or whether they only sell return from Germany

Kruger Mpumalanga is the reference in the booking app.

Given the low frequency and the seasonal nature of the flight I'd expect that much of the capacity was block sold to charter/tour operators.

Yesterday, 2023/01/12 Eurowings Discovery flight from Windhoek arrived a bit earlier than were scheduled of the Flight Plan according to FR24 (1200B instead of 1245B).

The A330 arrived at just after 1200B, but subsequently while monitoring it visually from the ground, there were at least 2 x go arounds when on finals on which I observed a Airlink and of course Eurowings.

I do not have any details regard to the reason why there were a double go arounds, the weather deemed to be excellent in the Lowveld.

So, here is my pick for the 1st ever go around for the Eurowings at Kruger Mpumalanga.
