    Hi guys, Has anyone done the 4x4 trails at Mabote river camp in Limpopo? Were going there later this month and would like some more info and hopefully some pics. Thanks.

    Hey D/B

    We were there 2 years ago, in July or so. Very nice cabin & stuff.

    Anyway, seeing it was July it was dry and the three courses were easy. Aparantly the one is a lot more difficult after some rain.

    We had some good fun and even my wife loved doing some 4x4'ing there. No photos readily available though.

    Hi Guys,

    This is one destination I can highly recommend, everyone enjoyed the weekend. Even the girls had a turn driving. We will definitely be going back later next year. Of the 4 routes we did 3, we planned to do all 4 but we ran into a bit of trouble on the last day, had to do a recovery which took as a good 2 hours. We stayed in the main camp which I can highly recommend outstanding facilities and great views. Many thanks to Esmè for her hospitality over the weekend.

    Cool Mabote 4x4 info

    Hi DefenderBender, just knew the temptation would be to much not to post the pic with the snatch strap attached to the Sorento. But just wait till the suspension lift is done and proper A/T tyres fitted, we'll see who recovers who . But yes, it's a great destination for all, including the kids, nothing to extreme, just great fun. We'll definitely be back there soon
