Self Drive KawaZulu Natal

We are thinking of hiring a rental car and touring this area in early Jan. Any advice please about doing this trip. Are the roads busy and is it safe? Is it an easy self drive?

Roads are pretty safe though you'll be able to do some research and find just a few places to avoid - for example, we did KZN then Kruger and chose to avoid the Hazyview area on the way up.
Driving in daytime is fine, I've heard suggest best not to drive at night.
Roads are in excellent condition for the main ones and variable for rest but mostly pretty good unless very remote such as on way to Ndumo which are worst roads I've ever driven!
GREAT places to see and stay.
Here's my unfinished trip report from June 2004.

Also look for older messages from Hanl and Celia who have also enjoyed road trips in this region.
