Hi, what will be the best fastest route to travel with caravan to Hoedspruit and Orpen Gate? How long will it take us from Pretoria?

Is the road via Polokwane better option?

Please advise.

Hi Christine.

The route I recommend is the N4 to Nelspruit-White River-Hazyview-Busbuck Ridge-Acornhoek-Klaserie. You can calculate the distance and time.

The road between White River and Hoedspruit is now very quiet since the transportation of ore by road from Phalaborwa has ceased.

Thank you. So you guys strongly recommend, we drive the N4 to Nelspruit, and then take the R40 towards Witrivier, then R538 towards Bushman Rock, Hazyview. I see then you get the R40 again. On the maps I can see alot of "shacks" or low cost houses you must drive through. Is this road safe?

My GPS recommends the following? The option to stay on N4, then take the exit towards Lydenburg on the R36 to Orighstad, then R527, R531 towards Moholoholo.

{We are driving to Moholoholo Nature Reserve}

PS We are taking the caravan.

Should have warned you the GPS sometines directs you on the old road to Hazyview.

Just out of White River is a traffic circle. Take the first exit,  No townships. Just beautiful scenery.

Dankie Hendrik. Ja die GPS bly maar rekenaar, dit is waarom ek gedink het "nothing beats experience". Dankie. Dan vat ons die Witrivier pad.

Ek hoor op die radio daar is betogings op die pad tussen Acornhoek en Marite, Marite is tussen Bosnoktand en Hazyview.  Waar presies weet ek nie. Dis 'n hele ent pad. 

Wanneer beplan julle om te ry Christine?

Twee alternatiewe om Bosbokrand te vermy. 

1.  N4-Belfast-Dullstroom-Lydenburg-Origstad-Strydomtonnel-R527 na Hoedspruit en dan regs op die R531 na Klaserie. Iemand anders sal moet se wat is die toestand van die pad.

2.  Draai regs by Hazyview na Skukuza. Ry deur Kruger vanaf Phabeni of Kruger Hek en gaan uit by Orpen na Klaserie. Langer maar beslis meer interessant.

Hou maar jou ore op die grond ivm die betogings.

Sterkte.

Sal interessant wees om te verneem watter roete julle gery het en die toestande. 

Geniet jul vakansie.

Hi almal. Die pad van so voor Dullstroom tot Orighstad kort-kort gate in. Egter nie onrybaar nie, maar wel slegte gate. Moet dit glad nie in die nag ry of donker nie.

Ander pad wat julle kan oorweeg na Phalaborwa is miskien Pietersburg, Tzaneen om? Ons dit Julie 2014 gery en was mooi.
