Upington to Twee Driving advice.

Unread post by MOGGYMINDER » Wed Apr 06, 2016 10:17 am

Hi we are regular self drive Kruger visitors from the UK however this is our first KTP. We are collecting our 4x4 vehicle in Upington and then collecting shopping at PnP. I keep reading about two routes and one to avoid (protests presently). We need the easiest, safest direct route to Twee and average time for the journey please. Many thanks. Jo

Hi MOGGYMINDER,

There is only one tar road from Upington to Twee Riviere.

I'm not sure what 2 routes you are referring to?? Maybe the gravel road from Kuruman via van Zylsrus??? But if you are collecting 4X4 and groceries in Upington that route is not a possibility.

In all honesty no protests that I know of between Upington and Twee Riviere.

Enjoy your trip, may you be blessed with stunning sightings :thumbs_up:

Hi thank you, I have traced the route on Google maps down to street view and you have reassured and confirmed what I thought but I always research thoroughly and ask a local ! I appreciate your time. Thank you. Jo

hi Moggyminder (great name)

we are also regular visitors from the UK and as a guide I would allow the following times:-
1/2hr to collect 4x4 and do paperwork etc.
1 1/2hr for shopping at PnP, don't forget your water
2 1/2 - 3hr drive from PnP to KTP main gate/2R.
then on to any of the other camps if you are not staying at 2R the first night.

for our upcoming trip (May 4th - May 14th ) we will be leaving Cape town at about 5am for the 07.10am flight and do not expect to be in our chalet in Mata Mata until 6pm.
its a long day but worth it.
