    Default Mafefe/Lekgalameetsi Route

    Hi, so after speaking to some top okes on the forum regarding the Lekgalameetsi reserve @joubertjg suggested i do a route i have also been eyeing on google maps, but according to Gmaps imaging there is not a designated road only bush with a thin line/ clearing going through.

    I just want to find out if someone have driven this route to Mafefe Camp?

    The route from Pta will probably as follows,>>>

    With the end of this route leading to Oesterd, and then in a northernly direction looking something like sani pass from the aerial view. If you zoom in at the "walking" part there is a "road" simmilar to a pass with switchbacks. >>>>>

    https://www.google.co.za/maps/dir/Ma...=en&authuser=0

    We will be 3 vehicles (2x hiluxes and a Cruiser 79) and be totaly self-sufficient. The plan from there will be to do a circular route through the reserve before camping at Mafefe (or bushcamping) the final night before returning home via the normal entrance route crossing the olifants river that is shown on the website (This wil be happening over the long weekend in June)

    If some of the knowledgeble okes on the forum will part with some info regarding what hopefully is a hidden gem of a route it will be much appreciated.

    Ek gaan nou daar in die omgewing woon en is reeds in beplanning om die Wolkberg goed te verken.

    Hi Vian,

    Ek het nou wel nie daar gaan ry met n 4X4 nie ,maar wel daar gaan stap.

    Daar is n pad maar jy sal net so tot by die "kamp plek" kan kom, daarna sal selfs die beste 4x4 en iemand wat baie meer ondervinding het as ek nie kan verder ry nie. wat ek wil se is die paaie lyk in die algemeen baie sleg ten minste daar waar ons was. Ons het van Mafefe se kant ingekom en net begin stap.

    Ek het n google earth file aangeheg om al die punte te wys wat ons besoek het.(verskoon asb die benaming van die punte)
    Mafefe.kmz

    Wat ek wel vir jou kan se is dit is ongelooflik mooi, dit voel soos ongerepte natuur waar geen mens al sy merk gemaak het nie. Ek stel voor jy beplan nie net die uitstappie nie maar voer dit verseker uit.

    Daar is n hele paar bobejane wat jy net voor moet oplet maar andersins is dit n heel lekker en rustige plek.

    Dankie vir almal se input, ek het na die kmz's gekyk en is nou besig om n finale roete op te trek. Hopelik is al die paaie nie te oorgroei na die nat somer nie.

    Groete Vian
