If it's the road I'm thinking about, watch out for potholes & cattle.

There was trouble on this road some months ago but all is quiet at the moment.  It is almost all through deep rural area with hectic traffic where you would not want to break down.  I have done this, but I would think twice to do this again.  You can also go via Louis Trichardt and Thohoyando, but the same reservations are valid there.  The alternative is via Tzaneen and Phalaborwa, but then you enter KNP much further south.
