Just seen on the news there are protests on the R71... was going to drive that road tomorrow morning as we are going up to Shingwedzi... and thought we would go in at Phalaborwa. Can anyone tell me if it is safe or is it better to drive up to Punda Maria and drive down to Shingwedzi
Thanks Bevi

Can stil do route but take Mooketsi way around from Polokwane to Tzaneen. Not much longer, just a few km.

It is always advisable to avoid protests RobertT gave you a good alternative route.

Enjoy your stay. :thumbs_up:

We are going that way on Saturday, so I will keep in mind your advice, RobertT. Thank you.

We are going to use RobertT's route tomorrow, just in case. It is always nice to try new routes, see new scenery etc. and he says it is not much longer.
