    Default 3-5day trail options from JHB

    Hi Guys

    I am looking for some ideas please on a off-road holiday.
    Is there a trail to drive up to the top of the Drakensburg? Can you camp up there?
    I am looking for a 3-5 day trail. It doesn't have to be the Drakensberg, other suggestions would be appreciated.
    Looking to depart JHB on the 7th January 2019

    Some of your options would be to do some of the famous/well known Eastern Cape passes. See the attached 2 Google Earth files for 2 trips that I have done from up north. You can also Google the Ben 10 Eco challenge. Some of the passes there is covered in my 2 trips.

    On these trips we did not camp. My friend traveled on his Adventure bike. The 1st trip I accompanied him in my 4x2 Ranger and on the 2nd trip in my 4x4 Ranger.

    Summary of trip 1:
    1) Volunteershoek Pass
    2) Tiffendell. My friend did the Ben MacDhui Pass on his Adventure bike. This was before it was opened as an official pass.
    3) Tiffindell-Tenahead Traverse
    4) Top of Naudesnek Pass
    5) Kraairivier Pass (Tar)
    6) Joubert's Pass
    7) Lundeansnek Pass. This is a must do for the views.

    Summary of trip 2:
    1) Lundeansnek Pass. Cannot do this enough time.
    2) Barkley Pass (Tar)
    3) Bastervoetpad Pass
    4) Bottelnek Pass
    5) Otto du Plessis Pass
    6) Kumajaba Pass
    7) Tsitsa Falls
    8 ) Tina Falls. Quite a unique one.
    9) Buffalo Neck Pass
    10) Ongeluksnek Pass.

    Feel free to contact me for any info.
