    Roads are decent, relative to what one is used to.
    Which route are you looking at after Vryheid? Are you towing?

    Roads are fine. Nothing to worry about. Best route from vhd to jozini is, to pongola and then onto jozini.

    Potholes here and there between dundee, vhd and pongola.

    And cattle, especially once past Vryheid. Also, try not to drive after dark.

    From Dundee, about 20km before vryheid the road is a bit uneven with a couple of potholes. From vryheid towards jozini via louwsburg, magudu and then pongola, the road isn't too bad. Watch out for speed bumps and cattle though
