KZN: A Tentative Plan for 8-10 days

Jump to last reply

After 10 days in the Kruger area concessions, we plan to fly to Durban, overnight and rent a car. Then we'd drive northwest to the northern Drakensbergs around Bergville (and stay in Craven Resort or Montusi) for two nights and just relax, go for gentle hikes. Then drive to Babanango and stay one or two nights. Then drive up to Leopard Mountain Lodge where we'd stay two maybe three nights (two may be enough since we'd have already done 8 or 9 safari nights) then drive to Thonga for a three night beach stay. After the beach, drive to Richard's Bay, dump car and fly to JoBerg and home to LA. Good maps are hard to come by and point to point directions from different sites have different interpretations of times and distances. We do not want to drive more than four hours in any one day. So how does this plan sound? Any better alternatives?
Thanks
