  2. Re: beaches a no no in garden route...what else to do?

    This was the condition of the road in September for probably 90% of the route. The 2 rockier sections are the 2.5km climb from De Vlugt and the 1km climb from Dieprivier (the next little river...
  3. Re: beaches a no no in garden route...what else to do?

    It's not a trail in any way. You can do it in almost any car except those with dropped suspensions. The rockier sections are a small percentage of the route and there shouldn't be a problem if you...

    Re: Mountain Zebra

    MZNP is a great park! I've done all the 4x4 trails in a Renault Duster 4x4 but i can definitely see that after a bit of rain that they could take on a totally different character. I found the Juries...

    I highly doubt that you will get any time savings by coming down the pass but it is a way more scenic route. If you want to see more of the forest you can also turn right on to Kom se Pad at...
