We will be driving from Richards Bay area to Kruger and enter the park at Crocodile Bridge gate. Any idea how long that would take? Where would be a good place to spend our first night? Lowere Sabie? Then should we spend a night there to see the area? Was going to go towards Skukuza but it sounds crowded. Thought of spending a night or 2 in Olifants or Letaba. Then exit Phataborwa gate to head to Joberg. Does this sound realistice to see the park in 4 nights. I want comfortably rustic and a private bath and restaurants as we are unable to camp. We will be at a private game reserve before Kruger so it this too much time to spend. From others advise, I think I'd prefer Kruger than an expensive private lodge outside. Any nice lodges in the park that I'm overlooking? My husband has a bad back so we won't want a lot of driving if that's possible. Thanks, barb
