"Road journeys will take longer than you think" Hoedspruit Warnings Or Dangers Tip by CatherineReichardt
Hoedspruit Warnings and Dangers: 4 reviews and 0 photos
I would caution you to be a little conservative in calculating travel times when you're planning your itinerary in the scenic eastern part of Mpumulanga.
Because of the steep topography, distances that look short 'as the crow flies' on the map often take much longer to cover than you think. For example, to get from Graskop to Hoedspruit takes well over an hour because you have to take the Abel Erasmus Pass down the escarpment and come through Strydom Tunnel. This road (and many others in the region) can be slow, as they are winding, pass through villages with speed restrictions and carry quite heavy traffic - all you need to do is get stuck behind a truck on one of these sections and your travel time will markedly increase.
On a happier note, you won't want to progress all that fast, because the scenery is so stunning that you'll want to savour it! So remember that the journey is as much part of the travel experience as the destination, and allow yourself plenty of time to stop and linger en route - you won't regret it!
