    Bolts for Jimny seats

    In my infinite wisdom I have lost the bolts to attach the rear seats of my Jimny to the floor. Does anyone know where I can replace them? I removed the seats and need to put them back!

    Re: Checking interest - Would anyone camp here:

    Sounds amazing. Looking forward to hearing more.

    Privacy, shade, well maintained ablution, bucket shower and fire pit is all one needs.

  16. Re: please advise on route Johannesburg to Kasane 2 weeks

    Also if you want to do CKGR I would stay for 3 nights or even do it as a separate trip. You really have to slow down and just experience the place rather than race through.

  22. Re: Camping Advice: Bhanga Nek Beach Camp, Little Paradise or Utshwayelo

    Suspect over the December holidays it will be much busier? Yes you are right "the Beach Camp" is on the lake and 300m from the beach. That doesn't bother me though - might make it more private and...
  23. Re: Camping Advice: Bhanga Nek Beach Camp, Little Paradise or Utshwayelo

    Did you manage to take a look at the campsite? Not too concerned about run down, but if there is rubbish everywhere etc. that's another matter
