Ashton's Hoedspruit To JNB Timings

Hi

I'm looking at getting from Hoedspruit to JNB on a Saturday in March 2020 for a flight back to the UK at 8pm.

Ashton's seems a good choice but their itinerary shows they'll get to JNB between 5pm and 6pm. Obviously 5pm would be perfect but 6pm might be a bit of a rush - has anyone used them recently for this route and can comment on what time they got into JNB

Are the roads busier on a Saturday which might cause a slight delay?

Thanks in advance

Roads are actually quieter on a Saturday, especially around Joburg as no rush hour traffic.

I have just asked a guide friend of mine, who uses it at least 3 times a year. She says it’s usually around 5 when it gets in, sometimes 5.30 but she’s never been later than that. She also travels during the week and not a Saturday

I suppose there is a risk if there’s an accident on the road or bad weather like I encountered last December. But sounds like you should be ok.

I once had less than an hour to check in due to a late flight and I made it. The airline actually escorted me and another 3 people through immigration and to the gate.
