My wife and I have limited time in KwaZulu-Natal but wanted to get out to see the Drakensberg. The only way for us to fit this into our trip would be to drive from the Airport on to Underberg and then spend the morning and afternoon of the next day going up to Sani Pass and doing a short hike before heading back to Durban for an evening event.
My question is: is it dangerous to drive the route from the Durban Airport to Underberg at night? Our flight is arriving in Durban at 7:10 and it will probably be close to 8 by the time we get our bags and hire a car. Google Maps say its nearly a 3-hour drive, so we'd be arriving around 11.
Thanks in advance for your response!
