Striking out a little further in the Kruger – Orpen

Since moving to White River in 2009 we’ve popped into Kruger countless times. Who wouldn’t? A scenic drive along the R40 to Hazyview and in through our favourite southern gate, Phabeni, brings us to Skukuza within two hours after a stop at the Golf Club and Lake Panic. Then the routes joining Skukuza to Lower Sabie, Pretoriuskop and occasionally a trip down to Crocodile Bridge are repeatedly traversed either as day trips or longer stays but after 6 years, it was time to strike out further afield.
