Hi everyone. I have just read through the whole thread and have not seen an answer, hope i didnt miss it. Whats the best gate option going to shingwedzi (travelling from joburg), punda or phalaborwa, or even pafuri? We are planning on leaving jozi at around 05:00 with a sedan only and two young kids (2 and sub 1 years old).

Thanks in advance.

From what I can ascertain from my map, it looks like Phalaborwa gate to Shingwedzi is 140kms and from Punda Gate, around 79 I think it was, so you would need to calculate how much time you save by travelling outside the park to the Punda Gate.
But either way a long trip ahead of you especially with little ones in the car.

This is always going to be a matter of personal choice, but I personally would enter throught Phala gate, and travel up to Shing.........at least you are driving in the park!! :thumbs_up:

Good day
We will be travelling from Nelspruit airport to Numbi gate via the R538 in a week's time. Any update on the road conditions etc would be much appreciated.
