Graag wil ek verneem watter pad die beste is na St Helena baai, is dit via Upington, via Kimberly of via N1. Afstand amper geen verskil, dit gaan oor die pad se toestand.

Dankie mense, baie dankie.

Ek het al drie gery met werk.

Het baie tyd gehad en kon verken langs die pad.

Paaie 2as in n goeie kondisie.

As jy haastig is die N1.

Tyd het Uppington.

Baie tyd het Kimberly.

Sleep jy en nie is voertuig gelaai.

Dalk gee ander meer.

Veilig ry.

I drive to Upington often and never go via N1 and Kimberley. I take the N14.Although you go through a few small dorpe it is quite quick and the traffic is much less than on N1 --and also no toll Road. Iusually take 8 -9hours to Upngton with rests in between (Vryburg = breakfast or lunch, Petrol station outside Ventersdorp + Coffee and Kuruman = Coffee). Road is very good and pleasant to drive. The drive trough time of the small towns and villages  is negligible and you make up easily  when on the open and straight road.

Upington to St. Helena Bay via Springbok and then N7. Road is in excellent condition and very little traffic. I prefer it to CapeTown - St Helena Bay (Road construction ? and lots of traffic).

You could also drive from Upington via Kenhardt and Calvinia .....good road and even less traffic. (and I never saw a speed cop......

Would advise against stopping in Kuruman due to high crime rate.

If you have time I would suggest driving a route that you have not previously driven, in this way you get to see more of the country and towns you drive through...

Stopping in Kuruman I would also not do, except at MacDonalds...

Do you drive the full distance or stop overnight somewhere. I prefer to stop overnight on these long trips.

Hennie2809, regular stops and not to long traveling period is major safety factor, so if you have time, limit traveling time to max of 5 hours a day, use this forum to plan your route and staying spot, .Why 5 hours, that way you don't start to early, might travel in the heat of day, but then the overnight stop you don't arrive to early (most state book in only from 14:00h onwards), so at spot still  time to slowly overnight set up and explore the area

Stay Curious
