Hi. My husband and I want to visit the Kruger Natational Park out of season for 3 weeks plus. We have a Penta caravan and are driving from Hillcrest, Durban, KZN.
What is the best route, and where to stopover on the way?
We where thinking of camps in either the middle or lower Kruger National Park.
All advide welcome.
There are many topics on Kruger Park on this forum. Just type in "Kruger" by the Title Search to see what I mean.
If this is your first visit then I recommend the south and not further north than Satara for your 3 week stay. My personal choice is Skukuza, Lower Sabie, Satara and Berg en Dal. All the camps are good bases from which to do game viewing and each has its unique biodiversity. I would spend about 5 days at each camp.
Travelling from Hillcrest I recommend the N3, Ladysmith, Newcastle, Ermelo, Chrissismeer, Badplaas, Nelspruit. Not sure how far you prefer to travel in a day but Badplaas might be a good stop over, but quite a long drive from Hillcrest. At least you will not have such a long drive the next day.
Alternatively take the N2, also making Badplaas the stop over.
Hope this helps. Enjoy your planning.
The sites at Lower Sabie are not that small for a standard caravan.
Welcome to the forum. Try Lower Sabie and Satara
I like Letaba.
Welcome to the forum. You will find good advice here.
Thank you everybody for your responses.
Now all I have to do is book out trip.
