TR to De Aar driving question

Unread postby wildcatzoo » Wed Oct 16, 2013 11:09 pm

Hi all,

We need to drive from Twee Rivieren to De Aar in a few weeks. The online mapper gives an estimate of 9 hours for the 680 km drive; does that sound about right? Any road works?

Hi Nancy.
It should not take longer than 7 hours to drive from TR to De Aar.
I last drove the section between Britstown and TR in May going up to KTP and there was very little road works.
I have not driven between Britstown and De Aar so cannot comment on that section,but it is only about 50kms.

Will be travelling this road,N10 and R360 enroute to KTP on the 5th November returning home on the 19th.
Will be able to update you on road works then,if you are travelling after this date.

Hi have to agree with Enrico.

Upington to De Aar is 427 kilometers. so that should not take you more than 4 and a half hours. Upington to Kgalagadi is 2 and a half hours drive. So all in all 7 hours, not speeding and not stopping for to long.

My dad will be driving down to Victoria West this weekend, I'll ask about roadworks when they return. :thumbs_up:

Thanks Enrico & Lion Queen. We'll be doing that drive on 5 November, after 10 nights in KTP starting 26 October. I'll do a trip report after we get back!
