A couple of days spent in Joburg, visiting, work meeting, wedding, sibling tea party (all 6 of us) and by mid day 24th Sep we were on our way to timeshare outside Hazeyview. Was ripped off at toll road :evil: gave exact extra change and was given change ignoring my extra. Went scenic route view via Sabie arrived after dark on pot holed road.
