    Default De Wildt or Hennops

    Hi Guys, which is better, Hennops or the De Wildt,

    I contacted the De Wildt yesterday, it is 14km off road and R160 per vehicle, and R30 per adult there after and kids under 10 years R10.

    Any one done these?

    Both offer a good day off the tar. Driven both twice and they probably offer the same sort of thing. De Wildt has a nice braai area with place for the kids to play. Hennops also offer braai facilities.

    Start with De Wildt if you want my opinion

    Done both and would say the “Koppie” at Henops is a bit more off a challenge. DeWildt is more off a nature trail, done it with my son (Likewaan) in his SUZUKI. DeWildt got one rocky spot that need some effort.

    Mogatle was a nice trail that was worth the money. The old Blazer could even beat the “Klip”

    Check out my picasa albums for pics of both done various times, was at De Wildt yesterday, the rain gives it a bunch of traction. Hekpoort if you want mud after these rains. Not sure what Hennops does after rains, but I think it could also be slippery.

    I do not like one of these trails or similar. They are to mild and over rated.... for the money they are charging anyway.

    I'll rather spent an extra few bucks and make a weekend of it somewhere.

    Different thing though when you are a beginner, or need to teach a beginner to trust his vehicle and gain some experience

    Of the two I prefer Hennops, the rocky section is a bit more challenging. Although it does tend to attract the "Brandy Brigade" on Saturday/Sunday afternoons, especially at the donga section which can become a bit unpleasant if not even dangerous.

    De Wildt is more of a day out with the family that includes a bit of a drive through the bush. Has a nice pool as well.

    Both are expensive for what you get!

    I use Hennops as a training/refresher course for myself and my mates as well as testing the effects of modifications to my car.

    I wouldn't really want to go more extreme (although I have occasionally) because the chances of vehicle damage start getting high at difficulty levels above this. My car is my everyday driver so I cant afford to ding it.
