  1. My ultimate road trip experience was last year for my birthday celebration. I have a bunch of crazy friends who made sure this birthday was a memorable one. We were hosted by Maliba lodge, went to Afriski, the stops and photos we took is uncountable. None the less I'm looking forward to go on another road trip to Lesotho for the braai festival happening in November. The landscapes of the 2 countries is amazing.

  2. My best memories are traveling from Johannesburg leaving early hours to our destination that's Mpumalanga stopping at most of the amazing waterfalls that I haven't seen in my life ,even going to the 3 rondavals pot holes many many more beautiful nature including the blyde river canyon that was epic.

  3. My favorite Travel memory is how myself,my siblings and my dad used to get from place to place when I was little, we didn't have a car and most times we didn't have much money either.We would often hike from Johannesburg to the Freestate to visit my Granny,Often Jumping off at different towns and catching a new lift before reaching pur destination.We played I-Spy and many other made up games. Each time we traveled, It was so exciting and fun, I felt like we were going on adventures, ofcourse back then it was safe to do so. We met so many different people on our rides and heard so many interesting stories. Our traveling memories are definitely ones I hold onto.

      1. Best trip, I had won a weekend stay and I could pick between 4 places. I chose a spot in Koster, and thought we can drive to sun city from there. My sister and a friend decided to join so we booked an extra room. So all 4 of us got into my little VW Polo, with luggage in the boot as well as my mom's Massive electrical oxygen machine, so I had to remove my backboard so that everything could fit. They didn't tell us that as you get closer there is a few kms of gravel road. Now trying to manoeuvre with 4 adults, boot full with heavy oxygen machine on gravel. My mom kept saying turn around let's go home because of how slow I had to drive and she was so nervous. We were luke 95% there and she is saying turn around lets go home. But we made it to the lodge. Obviously the next day leaving to sun city and back was a experience using the gravel road again.

        When we left the owner did say they planning on levelling out the road and putting tar as they know some cars struggle.
