    Default Marakele 4x4 Eco Trail

    Good day forum,

    We are planning a weekend trip to Marakele and we can't find any new information on the 4x4 Eco Trail. I have emailed them, but I am definitely more trusting of you guys, as you give objective opinions.
    Just a few questions:


    1. What is the cost of doing the trail, if any?
    2. Do we need a guide or can we drive ourselves with just a map?
    3. What are the necessities such as vehicle gear, etc?
    4. Any other useful info such as route grades, etc?


    Thank you very much in advance!

    I was there about 2 weeks ago, and they informed us that it was closed. It was closed with a gate and boulders. We did not inquire why.

    Kruger National told be the eco drives are closed due to rhino poaching.
    Which is rediculous as
    1. An extra set of eyes to see on the road leas travelled

    2. How many game rangers have been cought as part of the syndicate
