I still haven't decided which road to travel to KNP. I will be travelling from Thabazimbi to Phabeni gate. The nearest route is via Bela Bela, Groblersdal, Stoffberg, Roossenekal, Lydenburg etc. My question is have anyone driven the De Berg pass R577 between Roossenekal and Lydenburg to give me some advice on the road.

Roossenekal to Lydenberg is in great condition with low traffic volume.

A beautiful road and if I am not mistaken it is the highest tar road in Mphumalanga.

We drove it years ago and it is lovely. Yes, I think it is the highest point in Mpumalanga.
