    • Best route to Swakopmund from Johannesburg

      Johannesburg Nov 28, 2016 at 6:03 AM

      Hi there,

      I am planning to drive through to Swakopmund from Johannesburg in December but am not sure whether its better to travel through Botswana (which seems to be the shorter route at 17h35mins) or through the bottom of Namibia at 20h10mins)...
      Can anyone advise on the better route and give some suggestions with regards to where one can overnight?

      Your feedback would be greatly appreciated as we are feeling a little "lost" at the moment and still need to book accommodation along the route...

      Travel from Hoedspruit to JNB by car

      by Sebastian_arg Online Now Feb 24, 2009 at 5:47 PM

      Hi everybody!!

      I hope you can help me with this question (we are leaving to SA next sunday!!!)

      I will be staying at Hoedspruit (near Kruger Park) a couple of days, and then I was going to fly to JNB early in the morning to connect to Seychelles late on the night.

      Air Seychelles changed my schedule so I will not be able to fly from Hoedspruit to JNB, because I will not have enough time to make the connection to Seychelles.

      So, I see two alternatives:
      1) Leave the day before, and stay a night in JNB (I'd leave this as last resource)
      2) Drive early in the morning from Hoedspruit to JNB (we must be at JNB airport at about 11:30 AM).

      What would you recommend?

      Thanks a lot!!!!
