    Default Bass Lake or Bass Lakes

    So I have an afternoon off and just want to go for a slow ride in nature.

    I have never been to Bass Lake and got quite confused now while looking at it.

    So there is 2 bass Lakes? One near Cullinan and one near suikerbos rand. Both about 100km from me. One south and one north.

    Which one is easiest for a 3 to 5 hour drive.

    Bass Lake near Cullinan on the Moloto road is a conference and camping venue - very nice but no nature drive and they are also quite strict in terms of access if not camping there and no pre-arrangement.

    Bass Lake to the South of Jhb I believe has a nice 4x4 route and the scenery also not to bad - not sure what the options are in terms of not 4x4-ing.

    Other option is maybe a drive in Rietvlei? This will also exclude the major busy highways on a pay-weekend.

    Enjoy :-)

    You can camp or stay in the tents at Basslake. Not sure what the prices are though.

    En toe kry ek amper pak.

    Een of twee van die cross axle slopes was bietjie erg vir Mandy. Die bakkie hang so en wieg met links voor en regs agter in die lug.

    En ek is bekommerd as ek nog vorentoe gaan, gaan die angle erger raak.

    Ai maar ek het 'n lang preek gekry.

    Toe ry ons rustig uit en mis so paar hindernisse en sit nou lekker onder 'n lapa met 'n koue een.

    Is daar enige kampplekke daar, of net tente?

    Yip, we did the Bridgestone challange there a few years back. Some interesting obstacles depending how you attack them. Also don't know of camping facilities.

    Yes compared to Dewildt and Hennops this was quite a bit more fun


    I was sorry I had to bail half way.

    I still need to wash some mud off to inspect for damage.

    There was some unearthly scraping sounds when I slid off my line.

    I hope it is on the bash plate, I thought it was on the side steps but they are fine.
