I did Drakensburg in 2011. You can get a bus there v easily from Durbs. I stayed on a horse ranch and went into Lesotho, then bussed it up to JHB and got on a trip to Kruger.
in 2012, i picked up car in Durban and drove up the coast, eventually going to the battlefields (destroying hire car, had to pay extra after!), then crossed thru game park to St Lucia and tried to get to Moz but cos of sand i couldnt (long story) so ended up in Sodwana Bay where I did my PADI! then drove up to JHB and dumped the car!
I pre booked car from home...Nelspruit is near Kruger and you could rent stuff there
Hey windsor, i hired a car after 2012 and drove around for 3 wks- one of the best things I have ever done. Only hairy moments were going down dirt tracks in a polo, the ants that moved into my car and driving thru the bush fires! Oh and the short cut thru the game park when i was suddenly confronted by a rhino mum and baby!
Think you still have to pay for fuel cash only and you cant fill up, someone does it for you. Didnt drive in JHB, only to OR tambo
Just saying hi to remind you all I am still alive. Running has taken an inevitable back seat to various work issues for now. First marathon for me will be Seville in Feb. Amazed at how speedy you all are - seems this forum gets faster each year!!
Think cos if my shocker of a run this year I am way back in G so hopefully I can jump one pen up!!
