    Default Best recommended border crossing JHB to Kang

    So myself and a few mates will be leaving for Damaraland next week Friday (Damn excited as I am sure you can imagine I would just like to confirm which is the best border from Johannesburg to go to Kang. I know the Labotse is the most direct BUT that does not mean its a better / quicker / lets get there quick border than Kopfontein.

    Or perhaps there is a small one in between that is even more recommended. also if anyone has details on current border prices as well as times on the border you recommend.

    I intend leaving JHB early hours of the morning to get to the border and to kang in day time still I like to travel no more than 8 hours a day.

    Lobatse is really easy and we have always gone through quickly. The new SA buildings are super.

    The other option in Ramatlabana.

    Any border post north of Lobatse is a detour to get to Kang IMO and will take you through parts of Gaborone.

    Agree Lobatsi very easy and quick. Went through in March and May, in and out.

    I live in Damaraland and only use Lobatse. I would recommend pushing through to Eastgate at the Nam border as Kang is just a hop skip and a jump but if 8 hours is your limit then so be it.
