Regarding road conditions, we are still experiencing good roads with limited road works along the way. Allow yourself 9 hours (from Gauteng) to get there and you will be safe.
The new road from Maputu to the Kosi Bay border post has been tarred, so you can drive to STRAB via Komatipoort border post. This route is around one hour shorter, but then the N4 toll road to the border are quite expensive. also keep in mind that the last 8km to Malongane is still sand road, so you will still need at least a “bakkie” or SUV to get to Malongane.
Regarding border pickups:
Reminder that no cash will be given to drivers at the border. Your border pick up and drop off are paid on-line. You will print out your border pickup and drop-off vouchers (two separate vouchers) before you leave to give the applicable one to the driver when you are using the service.
If you are first timers and you have any questions regarding the festival, look on our website and download the STRAB Guide. That document will tell you what you need to know, other wise just mail us and we will assist! If you still don’t have questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org .
We will see you there!!
