We are joining a safari in the Kruger National Park and have 2 choices of either being picked up at O R Tambo Airport (we will be staying at Sandton) and driving for 7 or so hours in a minbus or flying to Nelspruit airport and driving for one hour or so.
Ordinarily, it would be a 'no brainer', but as we have never been to S.A. before, we had a romantic notion that a road trip would wind its way through small towns and provide interesting viewing along the way. However, speaking to a colleague who has just arrived home, it would appear that the road is a highway with very little of interest to see along the way for such a long trip by road. Please don't be offended by this comment, but we are just not great fans of long road trips unless it is well worth it.
We would appreciate any comments regarding whether we should drive or fly to our safari.
Thank you in advance.
