Avoid queues at Malelane

Fri Jun 23, 2017 4:00 pm

We arrive at OR Tambo at 10.35am on 19th October 2017, which wouldn't leave enough time to a Rest Camp, so we booked Berg en Dal from 21st October and we planned to stay around Nelspruit or Hazyview for a couple of nights. I now realise we will be entering on the Saturday and wondered if there will be weekend queues to contend with at Malelane gate. I can get accommodation at Berg en Dal on the Friday. Would this be a better plan?

Grab that accommodation with open arms!! What's in is in,.
You will then realize the gate trauma to be a past concern!!

What a dumb question, Ray! lol

Go into the Park ASAP? 0-

It is enough time, about 4.5 hours from Joburg to Malelane..don't worry, and no queues in the afternoon. BTW, remember members can order pre-packed food and booze from Malelane SPAR, Mel did it, just stop, pick up and pay! \O

I didn't understand a word of it! I tried booking the extra night online but there seems to be a system glitch. I've sent an email request. Is your local booking office open at the weekend Rich? If so, any chance you could ask for me? I'll email my booking details. :)

Hi Rich,

I've amended my booking online, so that's ok but it wouldn't let me pay the extra by credit card, so I'm still going to have to call the booking office on Monday. So we will be at Berg en Dal from 20/10/17 - 23/10/17 if you can make it?
