Driving from Joburg to Durban/Richards Bay

Jump to last reply

We're taking a last minute trip to South Africa and my other half wants to drive to the coast from Joburg. We know the distance and time but are unsure of the driving conditions and whether it is safe or indeed worthwhile.

We are also unsure if Richards Bay is worth a visit or if we should head to Saint Lucia instead. With Durban we have the impression that the city itself is not worth visiting but places on the outskirts are.

We are arriving next week. Thanks!
