Best route from Nelspruit to Punda Maria Gate

Unread post by BerkiSA » Wed Nov 08, 2017 10:21 pm

Hi All

Excited for our trip to the North!

Our first night is in Punda and we will be leaving from our home in Nelspruit. I was thinking about taking the Blyde River to Phalaborwa and then Giyani to Punda?

Any suggestions?

Help is much appreciated

HI BerkiSA, I really do wish you a super trip.

I have never traveled from Blyde River to Phalaborwa. It certainly sounds interesting.

I always take the Giyani road and have been very satisfied with it. I have experienced lots of traffic officers, be aware of the changing speed limits. It also has a lot of goats, cattle dogs and children, so drive carefully.

BerkiSA the best road for me personally would be to enter at a gate near where you stay and travel through the Park staying over in either Letaba or Olifants Camp for one night and then travel from there to Punda Maria. But it depends on your personal circumstances if you would be able to add an extra night. Enjoy your trip to the Northern Kruger National Park and travel safely :thumbs_up:

Thanks Guys

Would love to spend an extra night in the park, however, time will not allow for that!


Best Regards
