self-drive instructions


Johannesburg, N12 or N4, eMalahleni (Witbank), eMakhazeni (Belfast), Emnotweni (Dullstroom), Mashishing (Lydenburg), R36 to Ohrigstad, Strydom Tunnel, Hoedspruit, R40 to Klaserie, Kapama.



Take either the N12 or the N4 from Johannesburg to eMalahleni and Middelburg. Turn onto the R540 towards eMakhazeni, Emnotweni and Mashishing. Emnotweni is set on the Highveld and is an ideal point for exploring the region. The village has a quaint atmosphere and is famous for its trout fishing, and is a good halfway or lunch stop on the way to Kapama Private Game Reserve. From Mashishing, proceed on the R36 to Ohrigstad, and through the Strydom Tunnel to Hoedspruit.

This scenic drive through Mpumalanga takes in magnificent mountain landscapes and panoramic views – as you drive up the mountain passes onto the high escarpment, you’ll have sweeping vistas of the Lowveld down below. At the Strydom Tunnel, roadside stalls sell ethnic curios from the area.

From Hoedspruit, take the R40 to Klaserie and continue until you reach the Kapama Private Game Reserve entrance on the left.
