Over 1000 miles: think Edinburgh to Milan! At least two days of solid driving. Not the most interesting drive. Explains why most folks fly. Would not class it as unsafe, personally.

About 1813 Km, depending from where you are in Cape Town, and assuming you head for Malelane gate (1125 miles). A good 20 hours driving time, excluding stops for fuel, refreshments, etc.

About two days worth of driving!

It is perfectly safe, if you watch out for other drivers' potential mistakes, and do not drive after dark ( animals and pedestrians on an unlit road are a bad combination)

See some of the country? imagine those road movies in the states with miles of undulating vistas that go on unchanging for ages . . .! We forget that when travelling around our "little"island with its beautiful, varied scenery. It is hard to describe the isolation between towns too and I am used to the relatively underpopulated moorland regions of the UK. I also love driving long distances and am currently planning a long drive down to Croatia. Enjoy your trip. There is a daily morning direct flight to Nelspruit from CT and that is still 2.5 hours long.
