We are staying one night in Nelspruit and then driving to Hazyview for a 2 night stay. Whilst in Hazyview, we have made a booking for an escorted safari in Kruger.
What I would like to know is if it is worthwhile for our first encounter into Kruger, to self drive , entering the Malelane gate from Nelspruit, and then exiting at Paul Kruger Gate.Rather than just driving directly there.
Another question I have is , should we drive along the S114 (which is a more direct route, or travel onto the H5 to Lower Sabie, and then along the Lower Sabie road.
I see that there is also a road S21 which connects the S114 to the Lower Sabie Road. Is this another good option we could have.
We will be devoting the entire day to the journey, and naturally would like to see as many animals as possible.
What time do you recommend we arrive at the Malelane gate?
Looking forward to all replies.
