JHB to Sodwana - Scenic Route??
« on: January 16, 2013, 02:47:53 pm »
Hey

We are heading down to Sodwana the beginning of Feb for a diving long weekend (the diving kit will be taken down by some mates)

Looking for recommendations for scenic route down to there.  Gravel will be welcome but route must be doable in one day.

Any ideas?

Nice route to go, although mostly tar, would be S48 from Villiers to Vrede, via Cornelia. Then from Vrede to Memel, to Vryheid , Louwsburg to Candover, Josini to Sodwana. (Done this route before.... reasonably scenic... not too much traffic) :thumleft:

We are staying in a lodge on the outside so this should not be a problem

Yes Dries,

Ek het Jhb - Sodwana gedoen Junie 2012 en aangehegde roete gevolg (Villiers - Cornelia - Memel - Utrecht - Vryheid - Gluckstadt - Nongoma - Hluhluwe - Sodwana). Dit was 'n baie goeie kombinasie van grond en teer, en 'n paar mooi bergpasse ook.

Ek kan wel bevestig dat hulle my op my bike nie by die hoof kampeerterrein wou inlaat nie, ek moes by "Maak 'n Lalie" by Jan-maak-'n-jol kampplek kry!

Cheers, veilig ry
