Most interesting route from OR Tambo to Hazyview?

Hi

Heading to Hazyview for the night from Jo'burg airport in just under two weeks time.

I was planning on leaving the motorway at Belfast, driving through Dullstroom before turning right at Lydenburg.

Are there any major roadworks i will need to avoid and is this a good route to take?

I know it will be quicker to stay on the motorway and go via Nelspruit but was looking for a more interesting route.

Thanks

It for sure is the most scenic route to take.

Not aware of any major roadworks there.

No major roadworks there at the moment but the road between Belfast and Lydenburg does have the odd pothole, in one or two places you need to navigate carefully between the potholes so drive carefully and avoid driving at night. The road has no shoulder most of the way. As Klaus said, it is quite a scenic route and worth the extra time it will take.

Definitely the better, more scenic route to take. And not that much longer either. There are a few potholes to look out for as Onne mentioned but for the most part they have been repaired. You may also get caught behind the odd logging truck. You also miss the Machadadorp toll gate.

I just drove through there - both directions - and I came down from Sabie to Hazyview for the first time. Just lovely, and I do recommend going that way when you leave Lydenburg.
