Hi! We are arriving at 3:40pm into JNB in early November and will be spending the following night at a lodge near Hoedspruit. We would love to travel part of the way there upon arrival. We have made this overseas trip several times now and are comfortable driving on the opposite side of the road and are usually quite awake when we arrive (trying to deter comments that say just rest at an airport hotel and relax!).
We would like to make some dent in the journey, but are aware that people recommend not driving after dark. Do you have any suggestions on a safe area to stay overnight where we could reasonably make it to before it is too dark to be considered safe to drive?
Thanks in advance!
