KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Skukuza

  • Opting for car hire in Skukuza is a great way to make the most of your South African trip. While it is a popular safari destination, Skukuza does not have many public transport options, and visitors without a car must mainly rely on private taxis or tours. When you hire a car in Skukuza, you can easily explore the surrounding areas and visit popular attractions, like Lake Panic and the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, on your own schedule. You can also enjoy a day trip to the nearby city of Mbombela, which has no alternative transport links to Skukuza.
  • Many visitors heading to Skukuza arrive via Skukuza Airport (SZK), making this an extremely convenient place to pick up your hire car. Travellers landing at Skukuza Airport can collect their car at the terminal when they arrive. Alternatively, car hire services at SZK also provide a shuttle service that takes passengers from the airport to Skukuza’s main camp in Kruger National Park, where most visitors are based during their trip. Once you arrive at the camp, you can pick up your hire car from the on-site branch.
  • When you choose car hire in Skukuza, you will have the opportunity to explore remote terrain and nature reserves that are home to many species. This means that you should be mindful of the animals while you are driving and keep your speed low in areas where you may disturb herds or meet wildlife on the roads. You should also take supplies, like sun protection, water, and maps of the area, when you are driving in the more remote areas around Skukuza.
  • You will not generally encounter a lot of traffic in and around Skukuza. Instead, you will mainly be exploring country roads that are used by other tourists and conservationists. Some of these roads may not be well-maintained, especially if they are away from the main tourist areas, so make sure you use your judgement and do not drive off-road into places where you feel the vehicle might get stuck or where you may have difficulty turning around.
  • Book your rental car in Skukuza at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate rental cars in Skukuza are around 18% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Skukuza?

    When you choose car hire in Skukuza, you should consider the types of activities you want to enjoy during your stay. Driving in Skukuza is ideally suited to large vehicles with some off-road capacity, such as an SUV or people carrier. Larger cars will allow you to comfortably travel on dirt roads or on more remote terrain that may involve crossing water or travelling on very dusty tracks. Choosing a larger vehicle will also put you higher up away from the road, giving you a great view when you encounter animals.

  • What is the speed limit in Skukuza?

    Before you organise your Skukuza car hire, you should get to know the rules of the road in South Africa. When you see speed limit signs in South Africa, these will be displayed in km/h, not mph. For urban areas, the speed limit in South Africa is 60 km/h (35 mph), while on country roads the speed limit is 100 km/h (60 mph). If you are visiting nearby cities in Skukuza and driving on the motorways, the speed limit is 120 km/h (75 mph). When driving in remote, rural areas in and around Skukuza, it is advisable to lower your speed slightly to avoid skidding on dusty roads or damaging your car going over bumpy terrain.

  • What are the best places to park in Skukuza?

    If you are staying on-site at the Skukuza safari park, you will find that the lodges and camp accommodation has excellent free parking, so you won’t have to walk to get to your car. Nearby attractions, such as Kruger Safari Park also provide free, secure parking, so you can drive there and then leave your car while you go on a guided tour of the area. Most roadside beauty spots and natural attractions in Skukuza also have free roadside parking. If you venture into Mbombela, you can expect to pay around R15 (less than £1) for a 2h stay in a car park.
