I will be exiting KNP at Phalaborwa and travelling to Ermelo, towing a caravan could anyone give me advice as to the route I should take, either via Polokwane onto N11 or the shorter route through the tunnel, I understand the condition of this road is not good. Many thanks Graham

We recently towed from Orpen Gate to Ermelo via Klaserie, Graskop, Sabie, Machadadorp, Carolina, Ermelo, and the road wasn't bad at all.

Further North from Orpen, I can't say.

Graham,  the road from Phalaborwa to Mica was in a poor condition.   I don't know if it has been repaired.   WJ might have an answer.   

Other reports indicate one should avoid the Bushbuckridge road and thus turn towards Graskop rather than continue towards the Hazyview area.

The road through the tunnel to Orighstad and further to Lydenburg requires caution.  The R26 from Lydenburg to Schoemanskloof used to be very badly potholed asnd not recommended at all. 

The above is history that requires an update from members who may have travelled those roads recently.
