Hi LauraVC.

I would say about 4 1/2 hours for Berg'nDal - drive to Malelane Gate and then a short drive to Berg'nDal.

5 hours for Crocodile Bridge - you drive to Komatipoort and the camp is right at the Crocodile Bridge gate.

The N4 is a very good, fast road. When you get the option of Schoemanskloof or the old road, take the Schoemanskloof option (to the left). There are several toll gates, but there is not normally too much of a queue.

Hi all,

This July we're staying at Ekhutuleni in Hoedspruit, and would like to undertake day visits to the Park via Phalaborwa gate.

Can recent travelers to the Park comment on comparative condition of the following two routes leading to Ekuthuleni:

Route 1: https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=zPvMCD_EZSh8.k19rs85h5m6s
Route 2: https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=zPvMCD_EZSh8.kjdHDLyoz3XM

Of particular interest are the tar roads once you've turned off the highway - haven't traveled Route 1 recently but I know it used to have some notorious patches. Any recent improvements?

Returning from Punda Maria to Jo'burg

Just wondering if anyone can give some details on the best route for the above and approx travel time? I have checked out google maps but would like to double check with those who might have done it recently.
I have done the 'getting to' Kruger bit before but have never been Up North and want to make sure I allow plenty of room for error on the return so we don't miss our flight back to the UK.

Also, should there be any repeat of the PM gate closure due to demos, what would be a good alternative?

Thanks in advance...

From Punda I usually go via Giyani to Polokwane and then straight down the N1. The turn off to Giyani is a few k's out from the Punda gate on the left. Good roads but there are quite a few toll gates. Won't delay you but will cost.
