    Default Outing - Mini Overland tour, with a trail at the end. (Soft Roaders Welcome)

    __________________________________________________ _______________


    This event, or "outing" is about travelling on some scenic bushveld gravel roads, and camping at two different spots. Like a mini overland trip. The trail at the end, is to mimic a "Rough trip through rough country" in the "overlanding theme"

    We might even see some game, especially sable and even golden wildebeest.
    __________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ ____

    We gather at Honey Nest camp just outside Boons, and spend Friday Night at this, very nice little caravan park.
    The next morning we breakfast, set up camp and travel to the next camp spot via a gravel route with very scenic bushveld landscapes. The route travels through some game farms and bush lodge areas and we are sure to see, sable, hartebees and wildebeest.

    The next camp will be Karee Krans, a little camp spot set on the side of a little stream. with Kranse and Kloofies around you. We camp and kuier, next morning we breakfast, and:

    At Karee Krans there is a 4x4 route that all of us deemed as fantastic, but the new owners closed it for a while to rebuild the venue. It has been re-opened since November last year, and I would like to try it, on the Sunday.

    After the trail we head on home. You should be back in Gauteng before 4pm

    __________________________________________________ ___________________________

    When:
    22 to 24 June

    Where:

    Karee Krans - R80/p/n (Ablutions, hot water, and power) - Note: I know their website states R320/site, but I have been quoted R80/person, so never fear.
    Trail - R250.00 (rating 3 to 5) with escape routes


    Who:
    Anyone who has a vehicle that can travel dirt roads, the dirt roads are not always well maintained.

    You thinking of going with the Forester? I'm considering, but lots need to fall in place before then.
