Help with route plan


I will be arriving at 10am at Johannesburg airport and would like to rent a car. I will have 4 nights and then fly out out of Nelspruit at 11 AM on the last day. I would like to see Panorama Roue with Blyde River Canyon and Kruger Park. (as cost is an issue i would like todo self drives and stay outside park)

Please suggest me a good travel plan.

Hi Adam,

I understand cost is an issue but I would recommend at least 1 night in the park. Balule near Olifonts is a beautiful little camp, with reasonably priced huts (self catering only, there are shared ablutions and a shared kitchen with a gas stove). Hyena and elephant can be seen by the fence day and night. In my opinion I woul do 1 night nelspruit, 2 night in balule and 1 night Nelspruit.

Hi there!

I can understand regarding the heavy costs; What about a self catering unit such as Swagat Kruger, just outside the park, and within easy reach of the Panorama Route?

All the best,

Hazyview is a good base for both Kruger National Park and the panoramic route and has a lot of accommodation options.
