    p.s. - Have you done a trip?
    I personally haven't but my in laws did a few years ago- they said it was great- lions in there camp's at night - moderate off roading - nothing to hectic.

    Hi, we did the Mafunyane trail through the Kruger. You enter with a ranger and 5 other vehicles. Sleep in a different campsite every night. No electricity or water, have to bring your own. Trail is 4 nights camping, you enter at Phalaborwa and exit at Punda Maria. Was a great experience.

    Interesting thread, I also have an itch for something like this.

    The first one that comes to mind is the River Trip that im sure alot on here are aware of. I really hope the stars align for me this year so I can join the guys on this one.

    If I come up with anything cool, I will definitely post it on here with the estimated cost, and we can do a trip to make new pals in the community... a couple of beers around a fire after a day on the trail is always good!!

    I have done a few Lesotho trips, but would like to try some new areas.

    The most common problem I have come across is the fuel price , ie the cost to get to the trail and then the trail fee and and and . adds up to be expensive . So I am in this same boat as well . Day trail , sandwalle has just become boring and no challenge , but second common problem is the word challenging , just mention it and you will see the people running from attending as they are not keen to go damage their near million rand 4x4 on a difficult trail . and if you arrange , be sure to go and clear the trail beforehand as the moaner will have you for breakfast if you cant offer them a highway.
    Multi-day self sufficient challenging trails would be like hitting the jackpot . But I dont think they are to be had , not official trails by any account .
    That said , I am keen to go explore . keep me in your contact list .

    Hey Neon Deon
    Thanks for your input here bud.
    Definitely agree with you re: people worried about damaging their rigs. But these are not the type of adventure seekers that would join this type of challenge anyway. I do believe there is a fair amount of us out there that are keen to do these types of trails, and we will eventually get there.
    I have some routes that I have in mind and will start recce'ing later this year when I am done with a current work project. I will post all this information on this thread for any adventure junkies who feel like joining for a good time... keeping in mind that there might be some work needed on the routes- which just freaking excites me to no end- proper pioneering stuff.

    Adventure is out there, we just need to find it!

    Interesting thread!
    I have done both 4x4 routes in the KNP and please don't expect a challenge of any kind. I will definitely not recommend the KNP routes if you are searching for a challenge.

    In Lesotho you have the Baboons pass (2 days for us but some claimed 1 day was doable for them)- videos available on youtube

    A lessor known track is the one to the Venstervalle next to the Richtersveld. Starts at the town Kuboes and join civilisation at Eksteen fontein. This is a solid 2-3 day journey if you camp at the venstervalle (no facilities)

    I recently did the Mafunyani trail. It was awsome and definately not a suspension wrecker. I am very keen to do a few others. I would love to join other members of this group if possible. It seems the right way to go.
