Going to KNP from Howick next week towing super sport and plan to miss the road works and deviations on R36 north of Ermelo. An option is via Chrissiesmeer to Carolina then to over night at Badplaas. Has anyone travelled the road from Chrissiemeer to Carolina recently and can you advise the road condition, ie tar or gravel? Google maps show a tar road.
Many thanks Ray

Ray, I drove that road some three or so yesrs ago, a lot could have chaged since.

Hopefully someone will be able to assist with up to date info.

Hi Ray B,
I did this trip in May of this year and look up. "Camping in Newcastle". by Campervan.
In this, you will see my detaied road report to Kruger and back via two routes. Ad Rem.
Just read the trailing mail
The Chriseemeer route is excellent tar with NO trucks allowed.
I live in Hillcrest.
Hope this will help.
Regards,
Ad Rem.

Just don't go via Dundee where we camped. The road works just before Dundee would be terriblefor an on road van. We turned off the N11 at Ermelo and the roads to warmbad were in good order...

Ray the last time I used this road you asking about it was in fantastic condition. The road to Badplaas from Carolina was also in very good condition. The road between Carolina and Wonderfontein past Goedehoop Bricks and Morelig Combined School to the N4  is very old and uneven/bumpy with some potholes and to be avoided. Road is shown in white on googlemaps without a route code.

I travelled the Carolins Crissiesmeer road 3 weeks ago with the Penta. Excellent and quiet road.
From Carolina to Badplaas, fairly new road and well maintained. Good condition. Some trucks though. Rode this one with the motorcycle a month or so ago, no problems. Good for towing. Just take care where you go down from the escarpment via Rooihoogte pass. The first left bend following a fairly straight downhill portion, has a sharp curve to the left when one least expect it. Rather travel at 80 down the pass. Rest is fine.
Enjoy. Beautiful part of the country.

Eish, so much for Carolina and Chrissiesmeer's spelling, and I grew up in that neck of the woods.

I drove the road from Ermelo to Carolina about three months ago, en route from Hilton to KNP. Nothing wrong with it. No need to detour via Chrissiesmeer

Nee kan nie onthou nie. Is reeds in 1966 uit die gebied uit.
Het op Breyten gewoon en ge-laerskool maar was elke vakansie by familie op plase buite Chrissiesmeer en Carolina (almal le Roux).
Onthou wel ds. Ebersohn van Chrissiesmeer en nog so paar van die boere.

Dankie Pieter. Net gewonder of julle nie in die "helse" groot dorp gebly het nie. Ek is voorgestel in daai Kerk op Chrissie al was dit 70km van die plaas af. Dit was ons naaste Kerk. Het heeltemal in die boendoes groot geword en op Carolina in matriek gewees. 90km van die skool af gebly.

Ek dink Ds Ebersohn was 1 of 2 predikante voor Ds Strydom.
