How to get to Polokwane | iinfo TZANEEN

Johannesburg → Pretoria: N1 (if the travel choice is by road - car, bus, shuttle or taxi).
 
This national highway offers a straight, well-maintained route to the gateway to warmer and more sub-tropical areas, attracting tourists from all over the world.
Pretoria → Bela Bela (Warmbaths) →Modimolle (Nylstroom) → Mokopane (Potgietersrus) → Polokwane.
 
Alternative route - R101. Clearly sign-posted with an A. Detours through abovementioned towns. This route isn't tolled, therefore maybe not always in the best condition. Single lanes with trucks and other heavy vehicles make overtaking difficult.
 
Below a breakdown of the toll gates: names and fees. Prices range from light vehicle, heavy vehicle (2 axles), heavy vehicle (3/4 axles) to heavy vehicle (5+ axles).

How to Get to Polokwane:
 
By Air - The Gateway International Airport, also known as Polokwane or Pietersburg Airport, is located just outside the city. A few airlines connect passengers from Polokwane with most cities in South Africa.
 
By Bus - Polokwane lies halfway between Gauteng (300 km) and Zimbabwe (200 km) on the N1 road. Translux, Greyhound and the Intercape connect Johannesburg to the major South African cities.
 
Getting Around – car rental at the airport or in the CBD. The minibus taxi park is on the corner of Devenish Street and President Kruger Street in Polokwane, if that means of transport is considered.
