I travelled the numbi road from white river a month ago. The road surface is great once you pass peebles but bad potholes for a few kms before that. The road has been resurfaced through the settlement area and is widened to two lanes in some areas to allow for easier overtaking but lacking in actual road markings. Overall a definite improvement from what it was , just remember Friday afternoon will be busier and you will have to have your wits about you. Ps. from Hazyview it's a breeze so it depends which side you are coming from :thumbs_up:

Hi
Just returned from Kruger on the 10th July
Drove via Whiteriver and then Hazyview and entered via Numbi Gate on a Sunday. Road was good and not busy no social disturbances asked for directions people friendly
Exited via Malalane gate 0600 and then R38 to Barberton road good but at one spot large rocks across road police in attendance removing them not good to travel at night

From Lesley Nyawo Face book today

Kruger National Park guests are hereby advised to use Phabeni and Numbi gates to enter and exit the park; this is due to protest activities alongside the road to Paul Kruger gate until further notice.

Hi,

Is Paul Kruger gate still inaccessible for tourists ?
The advice on the KNP web site refers to August, 13th.

Thanks for any information.

Ok! apparently is open but can change so best to still use the other gates as indicated in my post above.

Just checking - is Numbi a viable option when traveling with a caravan from Hazyview? We've always avoided Numbi but are now going to Pretorius Kop - it would be much easier to enter there if possible.

I haven't heard of any further problems on the road to Numbi gate and driving it during the day will hopefully be fine.
but do keep an eye on this topic as we will advise as soon as we hear of anything.
