Self Drive

From Nelspruit

Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport is just outside Nelspruit and approximately two and a half hours drive. Follow the signs to White River, and then the R40 all the way to Hoedspruit (the signs will say Phalaborwa), passing through Hazyview, Bushbuckridge and Acornhoek.

The entrance road to the Wildlife Estate is on the R40 just as you get into the town at the first four way stop. There is a Total Garage on your left. Turn right and follow the road for about 300 metres past the Pick n Pay Centre to the security entrance of the estate.

From Johannesburg

Johannesburg is approximately five and a half hours drive. Take the N12 toward Witbank and Middleburg. It merges with the N4 from Pretoria, the main route to Nelspruit and Mozambique. After Middleburg, take the Belfast offramp (R540) and follow the signs to Dullstroom and then Lydenburg. After Lydenburg, follow the route to Ohrigstad and then Hoedspruit (R36, which later becomes R527). Drive through the town and over a railway bridge until you meet the R40 at a T junction. Turn right onto the R40. Drive 100 metres. You will notice a Total garage and KFC ahead on the right. Turn left at the stop street into the entrance road to the Estate. You will reach the security entrance after a few hundred metres.

From Eastgate (Hoedspruit Airport)

Turn right after leaving the airport. Turn right onto the R40. Town is just 6 kilometres away.

The entrance road to the Wildlife Estate is on the R40 just as you get into the town at the first four way stop. There is a Total Garage on your left. Turn right and follow the road for about 300 metres past the Pick n Pay Centre to the security entrance of the estate.

 

From Entrance to Hoedspruit Wildlife Estate

You need to inform security you are visiting Nyaleti Lodge – No 312. You can ask them for a map to us. Head left as you pass through the entrance and follow Rotsvy road for about two kilometres. Maroela is the second turning to the right. Follow Maroela for a few hundred metres. Soon after it bends left you will see the entrance to Nyaleti Lodge on the right just past a tree in the road.
