    Default Lebombo 4x4 Eco trail

    We are planning to do this trip in October, but I was a bit shocked to see that it costs R8600 for the 5 days/ 4 nights. It seems a tad expensive seeing that you have to be totally self-sufficient.

    Has anyone on the forum done this trip and is it worth that amount of money?


    Life is a journey, not a race. Enjoy it!

    My opinion, don't slaughter me for it.
    We did the Lebombo trail in 2008/9 can't remember. To us, it was a feeling of patrolling the fence for Sanparks at a huge expense to us

    Yes, the camping in the bush was ok, the ablutions not well kept, the radio's they supply not working etc etc etc. We saw more game on the normal roads when visiting a camp to freshen up and stock up on supplies, than on the trail.

    I would not do it again, not for half that money.

    Thanks JP.

    As I have added to my first post on other forums, I am not a "cheapskate", and would pay the money in a heartbeat if I can see the worth in it. I just feel they are charging a bit too much. I might be missing something so that's why I would like to hear from guys like you, who have actually done this trip.

    Exactly my thoughts. Did it in about 2004 and although it was many less rands, we still thought it was overpriced. Also, the two really nice campsites, and the other 2 not as nice ones, you arrive at about 5pm and leave at 7 am, so you can't even really enjoy them.
