How does KwaMbili fit into your tour of South Africa?
If you are doing the classic route from Johannesburg to Cape Town, KwaMbili is normally a second stop, immediately after the Panoramaroute. From there you will get to the lodge on time for the first afternoon game drive. Lunch is at 14h00 and the game drive leaves at 15h30.
After KwaMbili a favourite next stop would be central or southern Kruger Park, on your way to Swaziland and the Indian Ocean.
If you are driving the reverse route ( from the coast to the Greater Kruger Area), KwaMbili is usually visited after the Kruger National Park or after a destination further south e.g. in or near Swaziland. After your safari at kwaMbili you can then drive to Johannesburg with one stop on the Panoramaroute to break the journey. It is possible to drive to Johannesburg in one day, but it will be a long drive, approximately 7 hours.
For the more adventurous there are other routes to consider as well. If you explore the less busy parts of the country in the north (for example Marakele, Mapungubwe and the northern part of Kruger National Park), KwaMbili will be a great end to your trip. Alternatively, consider driving from KwaMbili to the central part of Kruger National Park. Stay at Letaba Rest Camp and from there take the interior route through to Mozambique and its white sandy beaches.
KwaMbili is very easily reached by air as well. Hoedspruit (Eastgate) Airport is close to us and there are direct flights from Johannesburg and Cape Town. The airports of Nelspruit and Phalaborwa can also serve as access points. See Flying to Kwambili.
