What is the better road to take from Pretoria to Badplaas Forever Resort.

Chance are good that we will leave home late and will have some after 18h00 (dark) traveling.

Don't like the potholes on the new SA roads!

I see 2 options on Google Maps, 

A. PTA (N4), off the R 33 via Carolina or

B. PTA (N4), pass Belfast, Milly's and the off the R541.

Thanks

Both are acceptable at the moment. The potholes on the road via Carolina have been patched for now, but the first 10 - 15 km after the Wonderfontein turn-off is quite bumpy.

I would recommend the road via Machadodorp. It is quieter with less traffic and you stay on the freeway for longer, without going through an extra toll gate. The only few potholes are in the town of Machadodorp itself. The difference in distance is 10 km longer on the road via Machadodorp.

Ek kuier baie by Badplaas. Bo alle twyfel is die Belfast roete by ver beter. Dit is n oop reguit pad. Het drie keer Carolina al om gery en sal nie weer. Selfs al is die potholes vol gemaak is daardie kole trokke n nagmerrie om verby te steek en gevaarlik ook.

Belfast in my opinie baie beter en veiliger
Wanneer ry Hennie?
