Gate Times

  • Gowrie Gate closes at 19h00
  • NB: SELF-DRIVE GUESTS, it is not possible to cross directly from the Kruger National Park to the Sabi Sand Reserve. Guests will have to exit the applicable gate & enter the Sabi Sands at the Gowrie Gate. Cheetah Plains is only accessible via the Gowrie Gate. Please do not direct your guests via Newington or Shaws gate, as they will have to exit & drive around to the Gowrie Gate.  Once guests reach Acornhoek, the estimated travel time to Gowrie Gate  is approximately 1h30 depending on the condition of the road which is fairly poor at the moment. We thus advise that guests reach the lodge prior to sunset. Afternoon game drives depart between 15h00 – 16h00.
