Vryheid Travel Guide

Lack of signposts for places of interest - We used Vryheid as a stop over on our way home from Kruger National Park (4 - 6 Jan 2014). Our sole purpose was to visit the Battle fields in the area. We were disappointed to see the lack of interest in signposts to these various sites. Some signs were the old brown colour which were faded or the lettering had peeled off (one Nkambula sign). Some sites one couldn't even get to - no path or road in particular Scheepersnek along the R33. The entrance to Blood River was appalling - poorly sign posted. In fact we stopped to ask a local if we were on the right road. 21km on dirt road, which could do with a grading, resulted in our ultimate destination. Blood River has just celebrated 175 years & yet is hard to find. Maybe the road signs need money spent on them rather than millions spent on another memorial site depicting the Zulu side of Blood River which incidentally is closed to tourists on a Sunday! We found this strange when weekends are often prime time for tourists, like us local South Africans, to visit interesting venues. The potholes on our roads are something to be seriously looked at - some have been patched (badly) while others are large & could do serious damage if one were not able to dodge the holes. Not all can be blamed on Vryheid as we noticed we passed through three municipal areas on our 70 km trip just to Blood River. Maybe all municipalities should work together for the betterment of South Africa? I would like to see pamphlets and maps readily available at shops, garages etc to places of interest within the Vryheid area. This will allow tourist easier access to information rather than trying to follow the information sign to a venue somewhere in town.

Poor roads - It is a pity that a tourist destination such as Vryheid, in the midst of the cultural heartland and the battlefields route, has to make do with roads in such a poor condition. Due to the internationally recognised battlefields, large numbers of international tourists visit the area and are exposed to some of the worst sections of roads in the country. We visited the Bloedrivier heritage site on 28 April 2013 and was appalled at the condition of the entrance road, as well as the non existent route markings. Accidentally, also at the turnoff, we came across an international tourist party, consisting out of 9 Hertz vehichles trying to find their bearings on their GPS's looking for the turn off. This state of affairs creates an impression to the outside world, we South Africans do not take our own heritage and cultural diversity at heart. Tourism is indicated to be the biggest growth point in the economy, yet the resources needed to grow the economy is neglected.
