Johannesburg to Madikwe

Hi

We will be driving from Jo'burg airport to Madikwe game reserve in August. We will do the drive in a day but wondered if anyone has any suggestions for a place to stop for lunch and break the journey without going too far off route (the suggested route is N1, N4, R556).

Thanks

Simon

1. Re: Johannesburg to Madikwe

We've always struggled with this as the places that are more suited to getting lunch tend to come at the wrong points of the trip so don't coincide with lunchtime.

The last time we travelled the route, we ended up buying a picnic lunch from the filling station store and the Spar in the shopping complex near Sun City.

I personally don't like the N4 route. We always take Witkoppen Road at Fourways onto the R512 up past Lanseria Airport, until it joins the R104 north of Hartbeespoort Dam which then turns into the N4 and then turn onto the R556.

Thanks Sandy. I have not driven it before. We are starting from O Tambo airport, and took the route above from Google maps. Would your route via 512 offer any advantages in terms of avoiding congestion etc?
