Hi all, how safe is it to roadtrip from Plettenberg Bay to Durban via Mthatha in a camper van?

If you can time it to pass through mthatha early on a Sunday morning , infact try do the whole trip on a Sunday as all the towns and road is a lot quieter, other then that be alert as you would be driving anywhere in SA, and you should have no problems.

two roads diverged in a wood and i took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.

Daai huis is in KZN. Bietjie ver vir'n dop. Onthou net jou gemiddelde spoed deur die Transkei is maar stadig. Spring vroeg weg.

We travelled last week Thursday from Durban too Knysna through Mthatha. Got to Mthatha at 16h00 and it took us exactly 1hour to get through town. Even Mount Frere and Qumbu was a nightmare to get through. Also a lot of roadworks before and after Mthatha. Was getting dark and did not want to use the bypass road. 

Travel  back tomorrow to Durban and will go Queenstown, Matatiele,Kokstad way and definitely not Mthatha during the week.
