The N8 is a national route in South Africa that connects Upington, Kimberley, Bloemfontein and Maseru in Lesotho.[1] It is maintained by the South African National Roads Agency.


The road starts at Groblershoop in the Northern Cape, at a junction with the N10 from Upington. It runs east through Griquatown to Kimberley. From Kimberley it runs south-east into the Free State, on a recently upgraded stretch of road, to Bloemfontein. East of Bloemfontein, the road runs through Botshabelo, Thaba Nchu and Ladybrand to end on the Lesotho border at Maseru Bridge.[2]
