    Our only concern is safety, N1 road noise wouldn't bother us ;D
    I like both places as we have the choice to camp or take a room if we arrive late.
  11. Re: Route and accomodation - Bloemfontein to Crocodile Bridge

    Harrismith would be a private visit ;D

    Standerton would be the perfect match. Is the Riverpark safe?
    On Google, it looks like its one of these places where locals go fishing, nothing against this...
