Travel from Hoedspruit to JNB by car

Hi everybody!!

I hope you can help me with this question (we are leaving to SA next sunday!!!)

I will be staying at Hoedspruit (near Kruger Park) a couple of days, and then I was going to fly to JNB early in the morning to connect to Seychelles late on the night.

Air Seychelles changed my schedule so I will not be able to fly from Hoedspruit to JNB, because I will not have enough time to make the connection to Seychelles.

So, I see two alternatives:
1) Leave the day before, and stay a night in JNB (I'd leave this as last resource)
2) Drive early in the morning from Hoedspruit to JNB (we must be at JNB airport at about 11:30 AM).

What would you recommend?

Thanks a lot!!!!

Hi Sebastian!
I would agree with Gili and stay overnight at a B&B or hotel near the airport. The drive from Hoedspruit may go off without a hitch but then again, if something unforseen does happen (road works, car accident that ties up traffic, etc) you may run the risk of missing your flight. You will still need to allow time for parking the car, getting checked in, customs, etc. Just too many stressful what ifs to take a chance on missing your flight. A good nights sleep & relaxed breakfast would be my option.

There are road works in the pas and it will slow you down. make it a 7hour trip or drive via Polekwane it is about a 80km detoer.
