    Default Limpopo: Bewaarkloof Wolkberg Agatha Lekgalameetse

    I am planning my first off tar four day trip to Limpopo during early March and are considering to visit the Bewaarkloof Nature Reserve, Wolkberg Wilderness Area, Agatha Forest Reserve and
    Lekgalameetse Nature Reserve and surrounding areas. I plan a solo (one vehicle) trip and we are interested in exploring the area from a nature perspective.
    Some points that are drawing my attention is the Orrie Baragwanath Pass, Huge Outeniqua Yellowood tree in Lekgalameetse, crossing the Olifants river south of Lekgalameetse around Ga-Mokgatho and Ga-Mamogola and huge Sunland Baobab tree.
    Has anybody crossed the Olifants river here recently? How doable is it with standard Fortuner 4X4. Any proposals on the best scenic roads, places to visit, roads to take and self catering accommodation will be appreciated.
    I have read about a cycad forest somewhere - anybody with directions coordinates?

    Orrie Baragwana is easy ( some parts still old tar road)

    Cycads is at Modjadji (rain queen)
    Lets see what the more closer members say.

    Hi Poggie, only saw your post now.
    If you have not left yet or on your way to Wolkberg I can e-mail you the .gdb file for Garmin. Upload to PC-Mapsource and install to GPS. PM me if interested.
    I would not recommend the mountain offroad route (best sightseeing route) for a lone vehicle, no assistance or cell reception.
    With the heavy rain that fell in that region the mountain road may be blocked and I do not know how crossable the 1 of 2 rivers may be. Have encountered large boulders in the line of crossing after heavy rain. It may be cleared by other offroaders by now?
    Fog may also be against you with low clouds and rainy weather. One can get lost very easily and turn around is very scarce. Usually if not a sunny day.
    At the campsite there is 2 toilets and showers with a "donkey" geaser. Camping fees are very affordable.
    From the campsite you can return to the tar road with what used to be a good gravel road and exit at Moria.
    The offroad route may take up 3 -4 hours.
    If your trip to the mountain is on a weekend I will gladly accompany you.
    Google Map:- You enter the route at R528 tar & gravel and exit at R71 tar & gravel. Campsite is at gravel 3.
