Graham, if you add the Phalaborwa gate to Olifants distance in it takes it up to 286kms and in July when you have limited gate opening time is a long long way.
You would have to keep your speed right up which IMO is not ideal.
but as many have said, it can be done but not advisable.
I would try and move your last night at PM to say Mopani and that would make it far more a pleasant drive and allow enough time for replenishing groceries and arriving at Olifants with daylight to spare.

Thanks for the advice - it is really appreciated. I take your point about the distance, so will see if my parents are happy to drive to Olifants without us. It would be a shame to not stay in Punda Maria, but I guess another option would be to explore the north from Sirheni or Shingwedzi in order to cut the distance to Phalaborwa Gate.
