    Default R 36 between Lydenburg and Machadodorp

    I just returned from our Kriger Holiday.

    On our trip from Kruger to family in the Free State I drove the R 36 between Lydenburg and Machadodorp (N4 highway).

    BEWARE this road is TERRIBLE! I would not advise anybody to travel on this road. The potholes is so bad and at some places the road simply dissapears.

    I heard that its bad. I always use the road from Lydenburg to Dullstroom and then Belfast. It's not completely pothole free but definitely in a much better condition.

    Just to confirm, drove this road from Bambi to the Kwena dam turnoff on 3 & 5 May 2013. Terrible in some places. Take great care if you are driving this section in the dark!
