Good Day All

First I want to wish all the members a very prosperous 2017 full of wonderful sightings in this magical place.

I would like to know what will be the best route to take from Joburg to Orpen gate, I do believe that there is some potholes on the Dullstroom route as I will be pulling a trailer I do not really want to have issues with major potholes. So I was thinking on taking the N4 to Nelspruit and then from there up to Orpen does anybody know what the condition is of this route, or are there any other routes that you can suggest.

Thank you in advance for the information.

Which camp are you staying at on your first night?

If you leave early enough, you could enter one of the gates in the south, and drive to the first camp inside the reserve?
