    Yes no problem. You just won't be able to do the two 4x4 tracks

    IIRC, one of the tracks is accessible to 4x2 with diff lock.
    It's not leaking oil, it's sweating power!

    Just to clarify: The photos were taken by another camper at the site, we were not present at the time.

    Hi,
    As Paul said we will be there later this month.

    Last time we were close to Tantor, but this looks real close - to close for comfort!
    Must find a way to protect my PV panel.

    My PV panel was out and was fortunately not affected being a distance away from the vehicle itself.
    I need to get the Suuz CV done first otherwise I would join you folk there - such a great campsite, the way we like it.
    ENJOY!!

    I have only ever seen the elephants at Ithala though binocs, but I think the encounter that Peter's Suuz had was quite the other extreme!

    There is a lovely picnic spot on the LHS of the road as you head north and downhill in that vicinity. Had many happy breakfasts there.

    Peter were you guys in Hluluwe recently.

    Think 24/25 September or it could have been 9/10 September.

    Thought I saw a Suuz with red sticker on the windscreen with powered by the 4x4 community?

    Geez Peter, that's a bit close for comfort - a few weeks ago I drove down the road to Doornkraal in a little hired Suzuki Swift. I got a bit creeped out thinking "what if an ellie appears in the road" and I eventually turned back before I got to Doornkraal. Seems like I made the right decision!

    Yes Danie, we (together with Riaan and help from Shemula) organised the mini get togther from 23 - 25 Sep (The long weekend) so it was most likely us that you saw. Must be the only one with the red rhino horn on the roof as well.

    I'm not sure that I would take a small platkar like that on some of those roads but if you got that far then you might as well have continued ... the ellies are usually some distance away - you would be at equal risk on the tar in KNP!

    Hi Guys,

    I'm planning a trip and just wanted to know if there are any stands that are the best or are they all much the same?

    Thanks

    There are no real marked out stands, you select an area to not encroach on your neighbour and pitch.

    We normally get close to the river and further away from the communal areas.
    2 weekends past we were next to the river and close to the one lapa (our normal spot occupied).
    When it rained we went to the lapa for shelter.

    Some people prefer to pitch close to the ablutions which is at the top end next to the communal kitchen.

    Have a walk around and try to be there early.
    A views on one of the trails, rain and late night supper.

    Forgot to tell you it is an "awful" place, most people hate it but they keep on returning for punishment at the same camp (others go there once and never return).
