    Agree that the Cobb is best for roasting. I have a small portable braai that I take. Just big enough for 2 people.

    Re: Alldays to Mapungubwe road tarr.

    I travelled that road end of November last year. It is tar but very potholed. You should be OK as long as you keep the speed down. Parts are better on the gravel verge.

    Which road - Bloemfontein to Zastron?

    Mid February I will be going to Zastron via Bloemfontein.

    Which is the better route - N6, R26 or R702, R26? Although the N6 is slightly longer is the road condition better?
