    Default Safest Route Nelspruit to Tzaneen

    Wife has to fly to JHB and then travel by road to Nelspruit and from there to Tzaneen and then back to JHB, week after Easter weekend.

    Travelling from JHB to Nelspruit and Tzaneen to JHB is known to us.

    Which is the safer/better route from Nelspruit to Tzaneen.
    - I don't like the Hazyview, Bushbuck Ridge, Hoedspruit route - heard of to many accidents

    - What are the road conditions and traffic like on the:
    a) Nelspruit, Sabie, Graskop, R532 up to R36 and from there to Tzaneen, or
    b) Nelspruit, Lydenburg, Ohrigstad - R36 to Tzaneen like

    According to Garmin distances are similar. Rental car will probably be a VW Polo or similar.

    Landcruiser 79 Series D/Cab 4.2L Diesel

    I travelled the Graskop route to Tzaneen on Friday. Except I opted to go via Pelgrims, so didn't do the 532. I thought the road was fine. There was a lot of rain when I did the route, so a few potholes are possible. The last stretch on the 36 towards Tzaneen is built-up (township) and mostly 60km/h speed limit. I thought it was fine as well.
