Is the drive from Jnb to Madikwe interesting?

Is the drive from Jnb to Madikwe interesting?

We are trying to decide whether to drive or fly, and are curious about the scenery and if you get to view much of the local life, or is the drive fairly boring?

It's not a particularly long drive, but in no way would you call it interesting. Approx half the time is spent on corrugated gravel roads.

It is a 4 hour drive from a Joburg hotel to the lodge. Flying (including going to airport, waiting, flying, and drive to the lodge will also take at least 3 hours) So time shouldn't be a considerate factor in decisionmaking. I drive this stretch regularly and think it is a pleasant drive. Not particularly interesting, also not really boring. Only the last hour is over gravel road the rest is good tar

Hi there. Do you know if there is a car hire firm close to Madikwe Safari Lodge? We are air transferring into Madikwe but then spending four days at Sun City so we’re hoping to have a car we could self drive in Pilanesberg (plus save on the private car transfer out from Madikwe to Sun City)

Thanks in advance
