While entering Kruger through Parfuri Gate, do I have to go to Punda Maria to go to the Thulamela site?

Unfortunately one cant just go there you will need a guide so book before hand so that you have a booked trail at Punda

I see that the tour starts at Punda Maria at 7 AM. When I want to join at Paifuri picknick site, I suppose it starts later? Is there an exact time for that?

Dionni, I think that it would b best to contact Punda Maria reception. I am only aware of the tour leaving from Punda, not Pafuri. I might be wrong though.

There is not an exact time. There cannot be given the various obstacles and roadblocks that may be encountered on the way. That's even if the picnic spot is a legitimate collection point, which I doubt. Punda and Pafuri are a fair distance apart which complicates the issue.

I think calling the gate or Punda reception ahead of time is very good advice.

Good day fellow mites.

I need some info/advice.

We are planning to visit Shingwedzi in December. :dance: .

I want to Know whether it is possible to visit Thulamela if we are staying in Shingwedzi, or must we stay in PM to visit it? :hmz:

Thulamela is really on my to do list this year, seeing that I have been going to Kruger for about 15 years now, I feel that I can't put this on hold anymore. :mrgreen: . This will also be my first time that I will be going up to PM for a day visit. :mrgreen:

Thanks.
