Re: Lower Sabie to KMIA - pros/cons for Kruger gate vs. Phab

I do not see Phabeni Gate exit as a problem. Once you are out of the gate, it is only about 10/15 minutes to Hazyview. You should have plenty of time on your hands.

It is quite a long time since I have taken the Kruger exit, but I seem to remember that distance wise there was not that much difference.

Lower Sabie to Kruger is 53 kms, but you then have to add another 40 kms to Hazyview. Phabeni is 91 kms, but Hazyview is only about 10-15 kms away. It will take 4-5 hours to reach Phabeni at leisurely pace.

Didn't think of that. :roll:

Will they be completed by next year?

I'll also need to go from Lower Sabie to KMIA, except that flight is at 13 so I'll need to be there by 11. I'm tempted to use Croc Bridge gate... it'll be late May 2015, I hope roadworks are finished by that time...?!? ;)

For a domestic flight, an hour is more than enough.
Even 1 1/2 hours including car hire drop off.

Well, our journey through the Phabeni gate was fine, it took about 5 leisurely hours from LS to there, and just a few minutes before the gate a leopard crossed the road in front of us!

Feel sorry for us poor Yanks who are so far away from Kruger, my husband started his stopwatch at the time we exited the LS gate, by the time he stopped it at our front door 40 hours had passed!
