Advice on transfer between Zinkwazi Beach and Phinda

We are staying at some friends in Zinkwazi Beach before heading to Phinda for our safari. Our travel agent has quoted a private transfer which is about US$550 and that seems somewhat high for basically a 2.5 hour drive. While we could reach Phinda with a rental car, we are flying directly from Phinda to Sabi Sand so we wouldn't be able to drop the rental car off before departing for Sabi Sand. Does anyone have any thoughts on an alternative method? Not sure I want to go by city bus or anything but just don't love the thought of spending $550 for a two hour drive. Thanks for any thoughts.

That's about right. The transfer from Durban to Phinda is about that. I don't know about hiring a private driver in the area, but maybe someone else can help. That is quite a price for that drive. Offer one of your friends half that?

That's what we're thinking (have one of their friend's kids take us) or we're checking into transfer from Richards Bay Airport since closer and we could drop a rental car there.
