The drive from OR Tambo to Malelane is about 4 hours but depending upon where you are flying in from & how long that flight is as well as arrival time, I would recommend staying overnight in JNB if you plan on renting the vehicle in JNB.
If there are 3 adults & depending upon how much baggage you have, a sedan may be a bit on the cramped side.

Depending upon where you hire the vehicle, rooftop tents are not part of the package - certainly none at OR Tambo that I have seen.

Usually for international visitors, unlimited mileage is the standard option.
As for insurance, check out your options.

Just a thought :hmz: You are aware of the fact that you can fly in from JHB to Skukuza airport and rent a car at the airport?

@leena yes we are aware.. however, if we have to rent a car inside park the cost of renting car inside park is same renting from JNB. So we are looking for some budget friendly options.

@nighthawk2 thanks for suggestion. We have 10hr long flight and landing at 7 am.. so I am assuming we would be fresh to drive.

Thanks
