    Default KZN GTG Mlalazi/ Ongoye Forest 6-8 Nov 2020

    After discussion with Marais and Heinz ( and scouting venues) we decided to hold our next GTG at Mlalazi/ Mtunzini, which I have found to be a lovely venue. A bit about the venue:

    https://www.sacampsites.co.za/Campin...azi-kzn-parks/

    https://www.4x4community.co.za/forum...94#post4019594


    We will be camping in the larger Nkwazi camp from the Friday and on Saturday do a day trip through the Ongoye Forest on the 4x4 trail, stopping halfway for a brunch and then heading back to Mlalazi once we have exited the northern grassland section.

    On Saturday we will venture north and enter the Ongoye Forest from the south, drive the 4x4 trail and exit on the northern section and loop back to Mlalazi. Trail conditions I am unsure of currently, once myself and Gavin Fordham have done the recce I will advise.

    A pic attached of the grasslands, a really wonderful part of Zululand Ongoye is.

    Other activities planned I will update as and when, for now I have a cast iron ( flat bottom and potjie pot) cooking demo I want to do on the Saturday night, for those who might be interested.

    EDIT 1: The camp can be contacted on 035 3401836 for further info and booking is done through central reservations on 033 8451000.

    EDIT 2, 03/03/2020: I have Provisionally reserved 10 campsites - there are 33 available in the Nkwazi Camp so if more attend there should be available.. The rate is R360 per day and includes three adults - even if only two PAX you still pay R360. So your weekend for two nights will cost R720. Please use reservation number 473639 when making payment. Payments need to be made before 2nd April on this reservation and have to be done by yourself direct with Ezemvelo.

    EDIT3: 24/04/202 Date has been changed to 6 to 8 November

    It would be great if you could make it Estee, in fact, it would be rather splendid.

    We would love to join - but no confirmation at this point in time.
    Will advise closer to the date.
    I am so happy to see this revival of activities in the kZN Region - big thanks to the organizers who take up time and effort to get these things going and successfully completed.

    PS: Remember that I have the newly refurbished banner with me.
    If we cannot attend then it will have to be collected (AND returned in similar condition)
    Hopefully we will bring it along ourselves as in the past.
