    Default Camping only accessible by 4x4 in a 500KM radius from Pretoria

    Hello all, feeling that adventure itch again.

    Could anybody advise me on a nice camping spot only accessible by 4x4 with maybe some nice green scenery, rivers, that sort of thing that is not too far from PTA? somewhere like the MP or Upper KZN regions?

    Me and some friends want to do a bit of relaxed tented camping in a safe and scenic environment, so far my searches around this forum only yielded results in the Western Cape which is unfortunately a bit far for us.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    I think look at Kosi bay, some nice remote camping spots.

    Don't forget the Soutpansberg (Buzzard Mountain, Zvakanaka, Cloudforest Camping, etc). Still some nice wild places there.

    Camping at three provinces 4x4 is worth it, however not “wild” camping.

    kalahari 4x4 camp in Mabalingwe.

    lekgalametse in Limpopo.

    botsalano game reserve

    will think of a few more

    There's Serendipity 4x4 Echo Trail just outside Naboomspruit. When we camped at the mountain camp it was very rustic, donkey heater, bush loo looking out over the valley, 4x4 accessible and they have some nice 4x4 routes.

    eSwatini - enter at Bulembu, camp at Mololotja Nature Reserve. Relatively easy 4x4 drive inside the reserve to the Nkomati River. Take any of the back roads around Maguga Dam. Also near there is the Ebutsini trail on the SA side.

    Also check my blog (link in my signature) for some ideas - Blouberg Nature Reserve, Woodbush Forest (stay at Coral Tree Camp), and Mafefe 4x4 Camp with a drive through Lekgalameetse.
    Cheers,
    Frank.
