The same day we left the park for Nelspruit airport to fly to Cape Town. This airport is much closer compared to driving down to Joburg again. The only thing to note is that there are no daily flights from here so you need to plan accordingly. By the time we flew over a magical african sunset, we were in Love with Kruger park and it's wildlife.
Located at just about 45 minutes from Kruger National Park, this is a small town which is fast becoming popular due to its proximity to the wildlife reserve. Since we did last minute hotel bookings we did not get accommodation within the park so we halted the nights here. This place has quite a few Europeans and has a lot of small pubs /bistros that we could relax at during dusk.
