    Most reputable campsites/caravan parks/resorts are fine safety wise. For a gentle game drive go to Rietvlei game reserve. Plenty of camping places in Dinokeng as well.

    Many people would disagree with you and actually recommend the Royal battery. I have just bought a Royal 1150k for R1550 excluding old battery, which means I could buy two of them for the price of...

    Re: Castrol GTX CI-4 Diesel oil any good?

    Mine is on 150 000km and is serviced by my indy who has been looking after my vehicles for the last 20 years and I trust him! On the XUV500 it is mineral oil and that is done every 10 000km.

    Re: Castrol GTX CI-4 Diesel oil any good?

    If the service interval is 20 000km then it should be synthetic oil, which is what is used for my 2015 Scorpio Adventure model. With mineral oil it would be every 10 000km.
