Any suggestions for a safe halfway stop over between Gauteng and Durban. We have stayed over at Mountainview in Harrismith, but it is very noisy fron the passing trucks, and no security.

Dag Lewies, hoekom nie Spioenkop dam by 036 488 1578 te kontak of Wagendrif dam by 036 352 5520 dit is twee stil plekke wat lekker is en die geriewe is baie goed.

Mountain Splendour or Drakensville are both good options. It is more than half way, but leaves you with a shorter drive and an early arrival next day. Just avoid the Bergville road.

Yeah Mountain Splendour is a great caravan park, been there and got the badge. Drakensville although we never stayed there also looked very good.

Ek het nie Lewies se e-pos adres nie, admin sal dalk kan help, tensy Lewies my e-pos het.

Oppad na die volgende kamp.

Ladysmith se karavaan park het toe gemaak weens vandaliste?
Spioenkop dam is nou die naaste en ja dit is n lekker plek om te staan net die water is baie laag so week of so terug gewees.
Ons het net n goeie reen nodig en so ook die Wagendrift dan en selfs die Chelmsford dam die hele KZN het dit nodig.

 Alles in ag genome, sal ek eerder Harrismith gebruik vir oorslaap.

Ek het dit al gedoen, en vir die verkeer se lawaai, pluisies in die ore kan werk!!!!he-he-he.

Ek stem, dit is effe steurend, maar gesien aan die maklike toegang (sonder om af te wyk van jou roete af), die beskikbaarheid van BAIE eetplekke, het ek dit goed genoeg gevind.

Wat veiligheid aanbetref, wel, jy slaap mos net oor sonder om af te pak???, daar is hekke, veiligheidsheining, en ek het nog nie van groot probeleme daar verneem. Kontak die bestuur, hulle altyd bereid om te luister, ek het al tekortkoming/voorstelle aan hulle deurgestuur, en daar was aandag aangegee.

Pensioenarisse kan beding vir afslag, selfs vir die kamers wat te huur is.

Ander opsie is by MIDMAR dam, naby Howick.Jy moet dan net weet jy is nie binne loopafstand van SPUR, WIMPY of ander geriefie nie!!!!

Hi Hans,

Please tell me more about the Bergville road.

I asked on a different thread but have not seen any response - I am looking to travel, without the caravan, down that way on 17 November and comming back on 21 November.

Hallo David

About two years ago I made the mistake of using that road to get to Drakensville. The Exclusive somehow survived with only a broken wine glass, but more through blind luck than skill. It might have improved and you should be able to do it with a car alone. The really bad stretch was not so long.

Check out the thread "Bergville to Jhb: Alternative route" under road conditions. I nowadays stay on the N3 until I get off on the Ladysmith/Winterton or Estcourt/Winterton road and turn back towards Drakensville. I say this subject to correction as I have no map with me now.

Phone the guys at Drakensville. They should be able to tell if the road has since been repaired.

Just to add to my previous post. The bad part of the road seems to be the one going past the Sterkfontein dam. Another thread dealing with the issue is: "Hlalanathi Berg Resort- Latest road condition 2014". This one seems to be quite up to date.

I used that road last month, nothing is happening on that road. In a bakkie or SUV it is fine, drive around the craters and the gravel sections are better than the tar sections. In a normal car, take it slow and drive with care. I would not tow a van along there....... unless you have one of those off-roader things.................
