Road conditions from Clarens - R712 or N5?

Hi. I'm really hoping someone can give us some advise on which road is safer and better to use travelling from Clarens to Hlalanathi resort.

R712 or N5??

We have never been and want to avoid any unnecessary stress 😉

We recently drove that route in reverse from Royal Natal Park. We did the R712 , no problems, the odd potholes but nothing too bad. Slight road wash out near Little Switzerland resort but traffic lights for a short single lane part. Stunning scenery and quiet traffic wise.

Yes correct, which is on the route they'll have to drive to get to the resort after turning off the R712.
