    Default Woodlands Primary School, Sabie - Sabie Adventure Drive

    This weekend the Woodlands Primary School in Sabie held a fundraiser and called it the Sabie Adventure Drive. We had a great day to Hartbeesvlakte. Nowadays, Hartbeesvlakte can only be visited if you do the Fanie Botha Hiking Trail (I think). Unfortunately, due to poaching, it is virtually impossible to get a permit to drive there. They have put up camera traps to monitor the area for poachers. I have tried to arrange permits for our local WhatsApp 4x4 group to drive there, but was not able to get that.

    This make this day even more special as this must be one of the most beautiful areas in the Lowveld. It looks as if the school might do this as an annual event which means that we will be able to visit this area next year again. See some photo's taken during the day. I am busy preparing a YouTube video with some dashcam footage and some of the photos below. I will post the link as soon as it is done.

    Before we set off, we were treated with an early breakfast with coffee, muffins and rusks.

    We must just hope that we will be able to do Hartbeesvlakte again. With all the poaching taking place they have put up cameras now and it is basically impossible to get a permit to go and drive there. The school was fortunate to eventually manage to get a permit for this trip. But I was told that they are not sure if they will be able to get it again next year. So they will have to find another route.

    It is such a pity that such nice areas become out of bounds. With very little effort, I am sure they will be able to set up guided drives and make some money with it also. I am sure it will not become so busy that the area will be flooded with vehicles. I am even prepared to play guide for free.

    But yes, sometimes it is easier to ban something completely rather that to manage it properly. Then I have also seen efforts to do something, but then the prices asked are so way out that the kite will never fly. But this is a topic for a separate thread.
