    Default Route Advice - Jhb to Twee Rivieren, Kagaligadi

    Morning all, just a quick one:

    Fastest route from Jhb to Twee Rivieren.

    We have heard that the road from Van Zylsrus to Ashkam is really bad.

    Is it faster to go to Upington then head north?

    Thanks.

    This has been discussed on this forum quite a few times.

    My preferred route is from Van Zylsrust cross into Botswana at Middelpits, lovely tarr road all the way to 2R. Border crossings 10min each. Will cost +- R300 road tax. Just check your time as these border crossings close 16:00, I normally overnight in Van Zylsrust

    Quickest route is probably via Upington as long as you do not get stuck behind the trucks. Tobie's route is far more pleasant. The other route is to go in via Bray, down the A20 past Tsabong and onto TR

    Thanks for input chaps, much appreciated.

    I would love to take 2 days to get there, but we have to be in Jhb on Monday night and then in Twee Rivieren on Tuesday night. Gonna be a 15 hour tow.

    Will leave Jhb at 03;00. Long day.

    Thanks guys.

    I have done TR to Pretoria in 1 day via Upington - 1000km. Can be done since you have no delays at borders and no restrictions what can be taken in or out.
