Drive from Jo'burg to Mafikeng

Oh, and another question:

there is a conference I would like to attend in Mafikeng - Is it safe for me to drive there by myself as a woman, provided I drive in daylight hours?!

I would say yes, as long as you have a reliable roadmap. I wouldn't attempt it without one, but you must make sure you are driving the whole time in daylight.

In general I would say yes. As long as you stick to main/busy roads and only travel in the day.
