    Default Gauteng trail with sand???

    Hi all,

    Does anyone know a trail in the Gauteng area with sand? Like a river bed or similar that one can practice sand driving in? Needs to have camping facilities too

    Cheers

    Next time you are in Kathu, we can go sand driving. Nice place about 90km north of here. Heven't been there myself, but want to go soon!

    Hi Craig.

    Still enjoying Sishen? I will probably be there in the next two months. Will make sure I come over a weekend so we can go and explore the sand

    Will let you know beforehand...

    Yip, still loving it here. Can't wait for the first rain to clear the dust!!!

    I will try to drive out there sometime soon to get a look at the place.

    Other options are Witsand (120km), but the sand trail is VERY easy. Mountain trail is tough and too long IMHO. Lost a mudflap - small price to pay.

    Boegoeberg is awesome and a tough trail, but a bit far. 250km if I remember correctly.

    Anyway, let me know when you are heading this way.

    Noel Lancaster Sand. It's just outside Cullinan, I'll try and get you some details.

    Oops, sorry, it's a Jeep thing for the time being. Once it's completely opened and set up, we'll let others play as well.

    Yes on both counts. There's no facilities at the moment, so Les does not want 'intruders' before everything's done. AFAIK they are busy with EIA's, and several routes will be opened on the farm. There's mega playgrounds there, some really really nice rock crawling space as well.
