    Default 4x4 close to Pongola

    Hi Guys

    So next weekend we will be going with some of Swambos colleques to a reserve close to Pongola (not sure which one...).

    Does anyone know if there are any 4x4 routes/trails closeby?

    Thanks,

    Ok, just got the name of the place;

    It is called Rolling Valley Farm. Anybody heard of the place? I can't find it on the internet...

    "Pongola" is a big area...
    There's a nice 4x4 route in the Ithala Game Reserve, it starts just past the Ranger's quarters and heads down to the Pongola River. It costs about R80 if i remember correctly, and depending on recent weather conditions can be anything from a Grade 2/3 to Grade 5.
    It makes for a wonderful picnic down at the river - just watch the Chardonnay consumption before heading back...
    Cheers
