Motozulu, please post responses here, then they're of benefit to everyone.

And be careful of "advertising" your services - not acceptable.

Okay than for everybody,

Long Story:

There is no way through from St. Faiths to Bizana. Only the tarroad to Harding. The road from St. Faiths to Umtentweni gets also more and more tared and loses his magic. But left and right from these road there is still a lot of gravel left.

From Port Shepstone you take the main hardingroad and take the shortcut in Izingolweni to the road between Port Edward and Bizana.

The turnoff after Bizana towards Holy Cross is hard to find, there are no signs. 1 km after Bizana while you are going uphill, turn left. This road will bring you to Holy Cross. In Holy Cross you turn right on the tared main road. At the end of Holy Cross you turn left to Lusikisiki, there is also no sign.

From Lusikisiki to Mboyti you have to find your way yourself. I havenĀ“t been there yet. But there is a lodge as far as I know

regards

Thomas

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
