Hi Guys, Has anyone driven from Barberton to Piggs Peak, Swaziland recently? If can you please give me an indication of road conditions.  Thank you.  Vinod

Hi, I was there about two months ago.

We were on bikes but we saw loads of normal passenger vehicles.  The tar on the Swazi side of the border is a little broken up and pot-holed but easily passable. Even the dirt road alternative routes were in good condition.

Never been to Pig's Peak but the Barberton to Swazi border pass is absolutely amazing.

Hi Vinod
Hope it rain a lot before you go.
It is lovely in dry conditions but much more fun in the rain.
I have been up and down to Bulembu from Badplaas side  in the rain.
That is SUBARU FUN.
