Driving from Richards Bay to Zula Nyala

Do you think it is a good idea to drive from RB to ZN when my flight arrives at 18:50 next Saturday? Are the roads well lighted? The airport transfer is very expensive.

"Total distance is approximately 275km - a comfortable 3hr drive."

No I wouldnt do that the same night. You will only arrive aound 11.00pm. You will miss the afternoon game drive, dinner and be way too tired for the morning game drive.

Thanks, but the website says the drive from Richards Bay is 1.5 hours and 3 hours from Durban. Would it be okay to drive? We can't get on a earlier flight.
