Road Trip from Durban to Kruger

Unread post by Billy Goat » Wed Nov 04, 2015 6:01 am

Am planning on a road trip from Durban to Kruger mid 2016, via Hluhluwe/ Umfolozi.
Anyone having traveled this route previously have any interesting detours to share?

Hi Billy Goat

In that area, we enjoyed Zinkwazi, Bush Baby Lodge, Umlalazi, Sodwana Bay and Phinda. Phinda is rather expensive, but we found Rock Lodge to be exceptional and their game viewing was superb. We are already saving to go again.

Pietert.... Hello

Thanks for the reply.
Years ago I worked in the Pinda area repairing log houses on the reserve. Nice place but out of my league.
I have been up to Sodwana a few times (scuba diving/camping) and recently was in Hluluwe/ Umfolozi.
Next year we are getting married in Hluhluwe... A bush wedding

I would love to take 3 weeks and drive around Pongola/ Swaziland/ the Kruger and do some exploring.
A bush honeymoon.....
