Hi Estelle

In the last 7 years we have never gone into Kruger with food. We have always bought at the shops in the camps. The only park we have ever taken groceries into is Addo.

We thinking of doing things differently this year because it is the first time we staying for so long and the first time going north, so feedback like yours is greatly appreciated.

Regards
Ryan

I am very glad I stumbled on this subject. We are going to Punda Maria for the first time ever this year and from all I have been reading I think we should have booked for longer than the one night. I sounds really interesting.
Hopefully Mopani is also interesting because we are going there for 2 nights after PM and we haven't been there before either.

Hi Joubie

Do you know how long it takes from Pafuri to Punda Maria?

We are still trying to work out if we should enter at Punda gate or at Pafuri gate then drive down to Punda Maria.

How long is the drive from Polokwane to 1, Punda gate or 2, Pafuri gate?

This will help with our decision.

Enjoy the trip. I am also looking forward to our first trip north.

Hi Leaping Lizards
According to the Kruger map it's 76km's. We going to enter Pafuri Gate when it opens and explore the area. We want to go to Pafuri picnic area, Crooks Corner because the chances of us going up so far north in the near future again are slim and we have never been there. Most northern part of Kruger we have stayed at is Shingwedzi and we loved it. We there next week I can't wait.

Hello Leaping Lizard

Check out the website DistancesFrom.com.
Polokwane to Parfuri 276km, 4 hours. Straight forward driving N1, take the R525.
Polokwane to Punda Maria Camp 246km 3.5 hours. N1 to Louis Trichardt. R524 to Punda.

Parfuri to Punda 76km 3 plus hours depending on sightings.

If you come in via Punda gate you will have time to do the Mahonie loop andhave time to enjoy the camp with its bird hide, then do the Parfuri, Crooks Cnr area the next day.

Just a thought, have a great time.

Thanks Tusk

Is the R524 route to Punda better than the R81 via Giyani route?

I heard a while back that R81 was a better option, but that was then? Is the R524 better at the moment?
