  • Please do not forget to change money or get South African Rands from the ATM machine at the airport as you have to pay petrol and tollgate fees in cash – they do not accept foreign credit cards.

  The nicest route in good weather conditions:
Drive via Mbabane on the N3 towards Motjane/Oshoek. To view the Ngwenya Glass Factory and Shop, pass the turnoff N1 and carry on straight until you see Ngwenya signposted.

The best route in rainy weather conditions:
Drive via Mbabane on the N3 direction Motjane/Oshoek. Approximately 8 km before the Oshoek border post is the Ngwenya Glass Factory and Shop – where trained glass blowers create lovely items from recycled glass – well worth a visit. From there drive via the Oshoek border post towards Lochiel. Then turn right into the R541 towards Badplaas. Before Badplaas take the R38 to Barberton. When you see the sign R40 turn left into the R40 towards Mbombela/Nelspruit. Drive straight through Mbombela/Nelspruit to White River.

Important:
Please do not take the border post at Bulembu/Josefsdal as the road is very bad, partly gravel road and it will take much longer.
