Thanks for the info. Do the schools shut for the day at 12 noon or do they go back for the afternoon at say 2pm. We could take our time in the morning to avoid the school run. Pen

Well we will be doing that road on a Tuesday but I think we will chance it and just wait. Its going to take less time than driving all the way up to Hazyview and entering via Phabeni Gate. Thanks all for the help :clap: Pen

We'll be at Lower Sabie in a couple of weeks, hooray! We have a 4:40 pm flight from KMIA, I am sitting here staring at maps, I suppose we'll be able to leave LS and take a leisurely drive to Pretoriuskop, exit at the Numbi gate and miss all the roadworks? I think we did that one year, I remember the R538 being a decent route?

When we go to LS, we will have been in Swaziland for a night so we'll pass through Komatipoort and won't have to worry about the roadworks there.

Third trip to Kruger for these Californians, worth every minute of the 23 hours of flying it takes to get there!

gigib, as far as the R538 via Numbi gate is concerned, the following information is given on the Kruger National Park home page under "Parks":

"Due to poor road conditions and repairs taking place on the R538 (between White River, Numbi Gate and Hazyview), guests are advised to avoid this road and Numbi Gate. The R40 (leading directly from White River to Hazyview) is recommended as it has recently been repaired and guests can access or exit the Park via the Phabeni or Kruger gates."

Don't know if it will still be the case when you visit the park.
