It's a long haul from Johannesburg to Kruger National Park, so make the best of it.
Set out early, and stop often to enjoy the incredible vistas all the way through the arresting Drakensberg Mountain Range. Views upon views open up all around you while you pass through Blyde River Canyon, Africa's spectacular 'Grand Canyon'.
