Driving - JNB to Umhlanga Rocks to St. Lucia to Zulu Nyala

Any advise on safety, fuel costs, roundabouts, or anything else?

We are staying overnight in Johannesburg. Next day we are driving to Umhlanga Rocks for the night. Then on to St. Lucia for 4 days of relaxation and some tours. Then on to Zulu Nyala for 6 days and nights.

Hello, and just a suggestion, but you should consider flying from Joburg to Durban and cutting out a very long drive. It will take you approx 8 hours with stops to drive down. I like the drive but its a full day out of your holiday. You could get a flight connection soon after arrival and its only an hour to Durban. Mango & Kulula offer good prices on internal flights and when you weigh this up against hire car, fuel and tolls there wont be a lot in it.

Perfect advice. We used Mango to fly from Durban to Cape Town during part of our stay. Mango was great and VERY reasonable.
