Road conditions from Hazyview to Numbi gate

We'll be in Hazyview next week. Since Phabeni gate is closed (indefinitely?) due to the rain, we will have to use Numbi gate. What are the road conditions from Hazyview to Numbi? We will be using a standard hatchback vehicle (not an SUV).

Depending on where you stay, all 3 gates are safe, some are just closer:

Kruger Gate

Phabeni Gate

Numbi Gate

Just back this week from Kruger. Despite the SAN Parks website still giving warnings about R538 it is near perfect - other than the speedbumps to rightfully slow traffic down. BTW, this is from the White River end to Numbi as we drove from KMIA.

is it safe to enter at Numbi Gate for Pretoriuskop Rest Camp or would it be safer to go in at Malelane if I am traveling from Pretoria next month

I have got problems understanding these “safe” and “safer” questions, especially from South Africans.

They have been answered a gazillion times.

I leave from PTA to Pretoriuskop Rest camp on Monday morning. Is it safe to travel on the R40 and R538 from Nelspruit or is it safer to go in at Malelane Gate

Did i see that local folks had dug a trench on the road leading to KNP this week to protest.

The issues there have been fairly sporadic.

I would advice go through Malelane and drive to Afsaal and on to PKop through tar road depending on time availability, can add driving through S110-120 around BergNDal or even take the gravel road to Pkop from Afsaal
