Drive from Joburg to Kruger

We'd like to rent a car and drive from Joburg to Kruger next July. Anyone done that recently? Any advice? Thanks!

Easy drive, but the length and route will depend to some degree on which entrance to the park you use.

Thanks Gardyloo. We're headed for Elephant Plains via the Gowrie Gate. My thought is to got to Nelspruit, spend the night and then head to the Gowrie Gate. Sound reasonable?

tokolosh,
if you leave J'berg at 7 am, you'll be at the Gowrie gate by 11h30 no need for the layover in Nelspruit.
However if you are to spend the night there, then I'd strongly recommend that you ease of the N4 at belfast head through Dullstroom en route for Pilgrims rest, then curve your way back past Gods window hrough sabi to hazeyview. Spend the night there and enter the gate at 11 am the next day.

Some great sigghts and street side markets to explore.
