    We are staying at a hotel south of Polokwane for one night (originally wanted two nights but fully booked for the second night) so we have booked a hotel at Musina which means we are nearer to the top of the KNP. We are then booked into Pafuri Camp for three nights and would like to know whether Pafuri Camp is accessible from Pafuri Gate as our directions are from Punda Maria Gate to Pafuri Camp. We are self driving so do you know the travelling times from Musina via Punda Maria to Pafuri Gate and the travelling times from Musina via Pafuri Gate to Pafuri Camp? After Pafuri Camp we are travelling south and have booked into rest camps at Shingwedzi, Mopani, Olifants, Satara and Skukuza exiting at Paul Kruger Gate and flying out of Neilspurit to Cape Town. We have visited the southern part of the KNP previously but entered and exited via Paul Kruger Gate so the northern/central part of KNP is all very new to us. Any advice would be really appreciated
