Driving to Ponta do Ouro via Goba Swaziland

We just returned from Ponta to Pretoria via Goba. We recommend this as a scenic and relaxed drive. From Ponta to Goba it is mostly tar with some dirt in between with virtually no traffic. The dirt roads are in good condition and one can average 80km/h. Inside Swaziland the road is tar and in fair condition. There is some road works and from Manzini there are many speedbumps until one reaches the MR3 which is then mostly 120km/h.

To further skip traffic we took the road via Machadodorp. Beautiful and scenic.

You can get to Ponta with a sedan, but every place there requires 4x4

You cant attach maps to these chats.

Just to to http://Maps.google.com

put start as Barberton (spell it correctly)

and then end at Ponta do Ouro (Spell it correctly) and google will show you the way.

Note your best route is probably via Ressano Garcia
