Peregrine Falcon,
We are booked in Punda for a couple of nights starting April 15th. Flying into JNB on 14th and planned on spending the nights around Polokwane. I was warned by other forum members regarding the drive up north on the N1 on April 14 and 15 because of annual pilgrimage to Moria (Zion Moria Church). Apparently hundreds of buses (if not thousands) make their way north toward Polokwane. Maybe you are in luck and start your drive a day before all hell breaks loose, but why not check with South African forum members.

I ended-up changing my route and will travel via Lydenburg, entering via Phalaborwa and doing a long game drive north to Punda. on the 15th.

In any case, I am sure we will bump into each other in Punda (whether we will know it or not).

Best for your travels.

Hi all,
many thanks for your good wishes and I just know we'll enjoy ourselves.

Thanks for the warning ernani but we have experienced this before.
Several years ago we stayed in Polokwane but arrived on the Thursday before Good Friday, it was a little busy but we didn't find it to bad.
Hopefully arriving a day earlier it will be quieter, we'll soon find out.

ernani, we're staying in the tents at Punda Maria so you'll know where to find us, just look for the car with the yellow ribbons and you'll be most welcome to join us for a cold one or a glass of red wine.

We can't wait for Thursday to arrive. :dance: :dance:.

Take care wherever you are.

PF and DD.
