Correction Elephant Plains or Arathusa? Sorry

Hi, We will be traveling to SA for our first time with family of 5 which includes 3 adult children. We are staying at Kruger Park Lodge a week but will be booking one night at a Sabi Sands Camp to enjoy experience of off road sightings. Which camp would best and easiest to self drive to from Hazyview, Elephany Plains or Arathusa?

re your post dated: 16 November 2012

Elephant Plains and Arathusa are neighbours and they use the same entrance gate into the Northern Sabi Sand - Gowrie Gate. Travelling distance/time would therefore be exactly the same

And the word 'easiest' doesn't work that well here. If you haven't pinned down the route yet, let us know and we can explain it.

Which lodge did you book at? Elephant Plains or Arathusa? The lodge or the agent who made the booking for you is supposed to give you detailed directions and the directions usually indicate travelling time/distance. 1 Night to the Northern Sabi Sands might be a bit of a mission. 2 nights are recommended. Alternatively try to book somewhere in the Southern Sabi Sands which will be less travelling from Kruger Park Lodge. The entrance to the gates are on the same road. For the Northern Sabi Sands you'll have to travel via Bushbuckridge, Acornhoek. I suppose it will take you at least 3 hours to get to Arathusa or EP.
