So I looked at your route and you're taking us through Death Valley, a.k.a Sosh and Mabopane.........those places make the Cape Flats look benign.

That is why I said that I have not personally driven most of this route and it might be going from bad to worse. I did wander about the section through Shosh.

I agree that the N1 will be the quickest...... but not necessarily on that weekend. It will coincide with the builders break. So both the N1 and Moloto roads could be extremely busy. I don't know what your plans are, but it may be better to leave either the Thursday or Saterday.

But yes many things to take into considering when planning a trip.
