    Lightbulb Good overnight stop Centurion-Phalaborwa

    Hi fellow travellers,
    I need advice re good accommodation as a 1 night stopover between Centurion and Phalaborwa Gate to KNP on the 20th July. I arrive back home for 7 weeks on Saturday 16 July and have booked place for SWAMBO and self in KNP from 21 July.
    Don't want to rush off as I see the journey as part of a well deserved holiday and break, especially as we are travelling with a LR Defender Td5 90.
    Any recommendations?

    Thanks,

    Allan.

    Will suggest a stop-over at Polokwane, 300km from you and 200km from Phalaborwa or Tzaneen a 100km from the gate.

    If you driving belfast, try Lydenburg, 180km from phala, or even dullstroom....very nice! +- 250km from Phala.

    Hi Goof,
    Either or, doesn't matter but would prefer the Belfast route, more scenic and about the same distance.
    1st night at Letaba and last night at Lower Sabie. I also need to be back in Centurion on the afternoon of the 28th as we will be spending the weekend with my parents at Bakubung in the Pilanesberg.

    I will personally stay in an old favorite of mine - The Magoebaskloof Hotel Between Polokwane and Tzaneen. Apart from the distance between Polokwane and Moira it isd a far better road to travel on than the Belfast - Dullstroom - Mashishing - Ohrigstad - KNP road. Magoebaskloof Hotel has been rebuilt to its former glory after it burnt down a couple of years ago. Nice wine, scenerary and local cuisine. The Belfast Dullstroom area is just too cold for this time of the year.
