Driving in the Kruger National Park on a Kruger Park Self Drive Safaris is easy,however very slow, as the speed limit is very strictly enforced.
Travelling to the Kruger National Park is easy as the roads are modern, well signed posted, in the main, with a variety of scenic attractions.
One of the down falls of a Kruger Park Self Drive Safaris, is that you do not have the advantage , experience, and education of a safari guide.
These guides know how to read the bush, and have radio contact with other guides, and your opportunity for finding game, with a guide is greatly enhanced.
However at the park rest camps, you can reserve game drives, bush walks, etc, and this can compliment your self drive experience.

There are 12 main rest camps situated in different areas of Kruger National Park which enable visitors freedom of movement to explore the reserve.
The original term “rest camp” is misleading to most overseas tourists & implies a rather basic or temporary facility.
In fact, these rest camps are permanent structures similar to small resorts providing comfortable African themed chalets, licensed restaurants, shops & other features.
There are different types of accommodation including standard chalets, luxury riverside chalets, family cottages, furnished safari tents or economy huts. National Parks usually refer to these African chalets as bungalows.
Each of the main rest camps is fenced off to prevent dangerous animals entering and guests must remain within the camp from dusk till dawn. Some camps have swimming pools. Larger camps such as Skukuza have more facilities including an Internet cafe.
Usually there is a signal for mobile phones as well as a telephone call box but no phones in the bedrooms.
Chalets are serviced daily, air-conditioned, equipped with bedding and towels and have a private shower, toilet and basin.
Guests are supplied with a front door key and insect screens are fitted to the windows.
Most chalets have a small patio with a table and chairs and a refrigerator.
Standard SA 220v electric sockets are fitted to rooms and adaptors for charging videos or mobile phones are available from the shop.
Standard chalets – usually round (rondavel) with a thatched roof, single room, 2 or 3 separate beds and en suite shower / toilet.Not officially graded but equivalent to a good 3 star.Actually I think they are 4* moderate quality.
