Driving from Hoedspruit to Johannesburg?????

Hi. Due to a late flight out of Johannesburg, is it worth driving from Hoedspruit to Johannesburg?

As to whether it is worth it, that depends on yourself.

The shortest route is around 480 Km, and will take over 6 hours driving, without stops.

The fastest route is about 510 Km and will therefore take around the same time, without stops.

Personally, if I had the choice between driving, or flying, I'd fly, but you must decide if spending 6 hours plus, behind the wheel, is worth it.

Hi there,

On the Hoedspruit side, there can be a lot of lovely scenery.

We drive this route quite often;






And LOVE stopping in the wonderful town of Dullstrom. the scenery between Hoedspruit and Lydenburg is just to die for - over a mountain!

All the best,
