Directions For Drivers

If you are entering the Park for the first time, the best gate to enter through is the Numbi Gate. If you are driving to the camp from within the Park, please use the 'South African National Parks Visitors Guide to the Kruger National Park' which contains detailed road maps.

From Hazyview: Take the R538 out of the town and follow the signs to the Numbi Gate. Once inside the Park, follow the signs to the camp through the Park. Pretoriuskop camp is 9 km away from the gate. Allow about 20 minutes for the drive to the camp, however if you want to enjoy the game viewing possibilities give yourself more time.

From the Nelspruit/Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport: Follow the airport signs toward the exit. At the T-junction/stop street, turn right onto the R538 and follow the signs to the Numbi Gate.

From Johannesburg/Pretoria: Take the N12 or N4 highway to Witbank/eMalahleni and then follow N4 highway past Middleburg (Toll Plaza), Belfast/eMakhazeni, Machadodorp (Toll Plaza), Waterval Boven and continue towards Nelspruit. On entering Nelspruit, turn left onto the R40 to White River (Witrivier). When you reach White River, follow the signs for the R538 and the Numbi Gate.

From Johannesburg/Pretoria via Scenic Route: Take the N12 or N4 highway to Witbank/eMalahleni and then follow N4 highway to the Belfast turn-off. Take the off-ramp and head into Belfast/eMakhazeni, following signs to Dullstroom. Go through Dullstroom and carry on to the T-junction, and turn left to Lydenburg/Mashishing. In Lydenburg/Mashishing, follow the signs to Sabie over the Long Tom Pass (the highest tar road in South Africa). In Sabie, take the R536 to Hazyview. Just before Hazyview you will reach a T-junction. Turn right onto the R40 towards Hazyview, drive through the town. Take the R538 and follow the signs to the Numbi Gate.

Once inside the Park, do not get out of your car until you reach the camp. You may see some wildlife on your way - if you do, slow down and maintain a good distance. Do not drive off-road in any circumstances.

PLEASE NOTE: The Kruger National Park prohibits the use of roads within the Park before the gates are open and once the gates are closed, therefore guests need to plan their arrival and departure times carefully. You cannot arrange to leave the Park before the gates are open, and you must ensure that you arrive at the entrance gate with sufficient time to drive through the Park to reach your destination by the time the gate closes, otherwise you may not be permitted to enter.

January/February: Open 05:30, Close 18:30 March: Open 05:30, Close 18:00 April: Open 06:00; Close 18:00 May/June/July: Open 06:00, Close 17:30 August/September: Open 06:00, Close 18:00 October: Open 05:30, Close 18:00 November/December: Open 05:30, Close 18:30

Please note that the maximum speed limit in the Park is 50 km/h for tar roads and 40 km/h for gravel roads.
