Good Morning Calvin, I suggest an SUV (does not have to be a 4x4). Allow 6 hours from Johannesburg. Refer to our website for Directions and suggest Option 1. Regards, Bernie

Hi, the main roads are good .... it is only when you enter the park that the roads are pretty bad. We had a regular car, but found the ride really rough and if we go again would definitely hire a 4 x4 or SUV!!

However once there, you will have a fantastic time!!

Enjoy Deirdre

Definitely 4x4...off the street it's about 45min on a very bumpy road. You'll wreck a normal street car.

Thanks so much for the replies. We will take our time.. leave Johannesburg in the morning drive to Hoedspruit and spend a night there.

Guess we have to switch to a Ford Ecosport; and here comes another question.. we plan to get a Vodacom data sim card, can we rely on google map and lodge's paper map, instead of getting a GPS from car rental company?
