    I'm coming from the south but I think option number 2 might be in a better condition and maybe faster.

    everyone asks this question.

    Take it via Upington. Longer in distance but at least tar all the way. Too often the other road is heavily corrugated.

    I once drove via Van Zyls and I vowed to never do it again.

    The road was in a terrible state.

    Define best route

    We have ran to Middleputs, crossed into Bots and used the new tar rd down to Two rivers. On the way back we have ran to Tsabong, Werda and out at Bray.

    Both way better drives than Uppington or Van Zylsrus / Askham. Much more relaxed on the Bots roads.

    Leave Alberton at 5 am and we are at Bray by 12:00

    Lusted for a Landy but the Pajero was sexier and bigger in the right departments, just like my Missus.
