Traveling from Durban to PE

Good day,

We want to travel from Durban to PE but heard so many horror stories about the N2 theough Mtatha.

Now we are planning to take the route from Kokstad to Grahamstown and then PE. Will that work? How is the road condition and SAFTEY?

We drove around Mthatha in May last year, on a Wednesday, and it was perfectly manageable. Fridays and Saturdays are the worst and Sundays are the easiest. The roads have been improved with a couple of main streets now being one-ways. Signposting good.

The roadworks near Grahamstown are largely complete - went through there 6 weeks ago.
