Default Travel from Johannesburg to Kruger Wild Animal Park

We will be traveling to South Africa next summer & plan to fly into
Johannesburg and stay at a timeshare next to the Paul Kruger Gate. If
we rent a car, how are the roads from Johannesburg to the Gate? Is
there public transportation? Also, we want to take a tour to Victoria
Falls. Can we get a tour from somewhere close to the Gate or must we
go back to Johannesburg? Thank You. Jacquey.

The roads are in very good condition and for the biggest part comparable
to highways in Europe or the US.

There are some options, including flying. But you need to have a car to
go into Kruger.

Most tours to Vic Falls will start from Johannesburg or Pretoria. Still
it is quite a drive if you into to do it by road!!! I don't think any
tour operator will do that kind of distance in one (extremely long) day.
Flying into Vic falls is another option.

The road from Johannesburg to Kruger is very good. Much of the way is
toll road in excellent condition.

Flying to Vic Falls is the only real option. It's a MASSIVE drive from
Johannesburg, taking two days at least, and there are fuel issues in
Zimbabwe. Flights will all start in Johannesburg.

Regards,
Marc

Hi Jacquey,

The roads from Jo'burg to the Kruger Park are good. Watch out for
speedtraps, also in the Kruger Park.
If you want to go to Vic. Falls I advise to take a flight from Jo'burg to
Vic. Falls.

Enjoy!

Bushregards,

Corne.
