    Re: Amatikulu Nature Reserve

    Hi Koos

    Just out of interest, the Raffia Palm trail at Umlalazi, is it safe? I felt a bit creeped out looking for vultures there last year.

    With regard to Amatikulu, I agree with you - our last...

    Re: Doing a 4 x National Park Tour

    Drive cautiously in the Tankwa Karoo vicinity. The slate bits that often top the roads around there are real tyre eaters. Even the gentle 4x4 tracks in the park can result in tyre problems.
