Congrats Hans- Sensible decision after my fine cut in 2012 when little one came at 3am Weds morning (week early) having arrived back in UK midday Tuesday!!!
Piers- I'll second Hans' Mpila camp. We stayed there (2011) and did a guided 4 day tour where you sleep in a base camp in the bush for 3 nights. It was sensational though I would recommend a sleeping bag as despite the 4 blankets I was freezing. We then drove from there to Drakensberg and spent the weekend there after Comrades. We did a 4 hour and 8 hour walk and the second one left the legs worse than the race. There was no issue with driving the day after.
