Hi cathy, sorry but i only saw your request now when i opened the monthly newsletter. after a little more research we decided to do the trip in one day without stopping, we did the trip on a sunday as figured the route would be a lot quieter, towns and roads. we left margate at 2 am on a sunday morning with the intention of passing through mthatha before the town wakes up which we did, we went through mthatha around 7.30 am that morning. the whole trip from margate to yellow sands took 9 hours, we did stop once for fuel at a garage approx 20 kms before mthatha , the garage is in front of the b and b were we had planned to stay over but chose not to. i can’t comment on the place as we did not go in for a look , however looking at the place online wilst it looked the part the communications both telephonically and online left a lot to be desired hence we chose to drive through in 1 day, tiring but a good day, we had a quite trouble free trip. we left yellows sands at the end of july this year and are now at green fountains caravan park at port alfred.
