The place is fairly primitive but offers some breathtaking scenery and a very good 4×4 alternative for those who have done Hennops and De Wildt for the umpteenth time!
Water crossing over a rocky section of the river close to the bar.
Great fun and an awesome place to takes pictures of your 4×4!
The neighbouring game farm also has a lovely spot with a cluster chalet setup that can accommodate up to 10 people. This is a very scenic spot and further extends the 4×4 route.
There are also sections that very few will be able to conquer – at least for now until such time that the loose soil and rocks have settled.
The trail won’t damage your vehicle if you take care, you will be able to walk all obstacles and make a decision.
You will also be able to make recommendations in terms of what you would specifically prefer in further expansion of the route.
There are basic camping facilities with an awesome view of the river and plenty of shade.
