Good day all.

I am busy planning a long over due trip of the eastern cape interior and I was wondering if anyone could help. Our plan is to travel up from PE to the Mountain Zebra National Park and spend a few nights there and then head over to Nieu-Bethesda for a few nights and end off at the new camping site in the Camdeboo National Park.

I was wondering if anyone knew the condition of the R61 which links up the N10 from Cradock and the N9 to Graaff-Reinet? What is the Wapadsberg pass like? Would this be quicker that following the N10 north and the linking up with the N9 south to Graaff-Reinet?

If only we had more time we could head across to Beaufort West and visit the new lions at the Karoo National Park. Next Time!!

Any help with this and any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Yes, Wapadsberg is the way to go...the tar road is in a good condition.

Our visit is now finalized and booked
Camdeboo 21 jan 13 - 25 jan 13
Knysna (timeshare) 25 jan 13 - 01 feb 13
Ebb & Flow 01 feb 13- 04 feb 13

What would be the recommended route from Ebb & Flow to MZNP.
Is the R337 from Willowmore to Cradock a proposition? Anyone has done this route?

Thanks in advance,

I have travelled along the R329 from Willowmore to where you get on to the R327 and it is a concrete strip road. It was in excellent condition at the time, about 3 years ago and was really a lovely route. To get to Willowmore from Ebb and Flow I would go back to George and over the Outeniqua Pass and along the N9 to Willowmore. Very long straight stretches and a bit tiring.
