    Default Kungwini or De Wildt?

    We are planning to go and sharpen our teeth over the next 2 weeks but taking Swambos and flock with so will do a braai afterwards. Track more important than braai or other facilities.
    Which of the 2 tracks would you recommend - Kungwini or De Wildt?

    Why not considering Moegatle as well, we normally braai in the dry river bed, very nice.
    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.

    That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Another vote for De Wildt, but Kungwini is not bad.

    De Wildt is a lovely venue with a nice easy beginners trail.

    Kungwini is also OK, but the facilities can't compare - the track at Kungwini is in two parts
    - the worlds most boring drive.
    - the river section which is very difficult but great fun.

    If you are a noob - go to De Wildt, it is a great starter track...

    Thanks for all the advice! De Wildt seems to be popular . Have been there about 2 months ago and they have great facilities. Was looking for a venue where tracks are a bit more challenging . Will check out the other suggestions like Sandwani. Thanks for everyones feedback - public holiday action on Thursday are taking shape....

    Philosophy is a wonderful world!

    They also say if you fail to prepare you prepare to fail.... - and then I don't like the latter!

    Preparing for our Lesotho trip in October and doing Old Mill Road Pass on the way and closing the trip with Baboons pass. 5 vehicles with 2 guys with their new vehicles (Patrol and LC bakkie). Want them to get to know their vehicles and be PROPERLY PREPARED for the trip.


    Decided to try somewhere new and based on all the feedback above doing Moegatle tomorrow. Will let you have our feedback on Moegatle but telephonic arrangements etc has been smooth so far.

    Moegatle was nice experience. Found more track than at DeWildt with the rock being a serious challenge. Not many venues will in my view however match the general facilities at DeWildt but the basics are there wrt overnight, swimming pool, braai etc. and a nice pub.

    You do meet the local community along the route and we had a beer in a local pub (sjebeen) which was nice. If you are not into that a part of the route might not be enjoyable.

    Will definitely go back for another visit. Thank you Alex!
