Ponta Malongane

Getting there and Directions.

Ponta Malongane and Ponta do Ouro Accommodation is best accessed through the Kosi Bay border. The border is approximately 630kms from Jo’burg and 460kms from Durban and is open 7 days a week (08h00am to 17h00pm).

Between the border and Ponta Malongane a 4x4 vehicle is required due to the soft sandy roads. Should you not have one, a border transfer can be arranged. Please let us know when making your reservation.

Your vehicle can be left at the parking lot just before the border at a charge of R30.00 per day. The parking lot is privately run and secure. Skelm's Parking (082 624 6518)

Please allow ample travelling time to get to the Border before it closes as road conditions aren't always good and can slow journey time down considerably. There are often potholes, lots of trucks and also cattle in the road.

Recommended travel time from Jo'burg to the Border
is 7 - 8 hours HOWEVER... with the current road works the journey can easily take 9 hours and worst case scenario up to 10 hours. These road works have been around for a good few years and will still be a factor for some time so please do take note of travel time.
