    Default The 3 Provinces Unbeatable Trip with some Old Wheelers.

    The 3 Provinces Unbeatable Trip with some Old Wheelers.
    When:
    5,6,7 February 2021


    Where:
    3 Provinces 4x4 Trails and adventures: Link > General Information
    Only three hours’ drive from Gauteng, near the small town of Volksrust, lies a gem of mother nature that is well worth exploring. It’s a place that has been blessed with abundance. Waterfalls elegantly find their way to the streams below and black eagles soar in the skies above.

    Why:
    I haven’t been there in about 3 years and this trail is an absolute must once a year. With all the rain, trails often change. 3 Provinces with its vast views and splendour is an absolute Gem.

    Who:
    Anyone that wants to come and join, can come and share a fire with us.
    If you are wanting to 4x4, please note that it will require a 4x4 with low range, reasonable ground clearance and proper tyres. Make sure you bring your recovery gear, compressor and good wit.


    What: is the plan
    We arrive on the 5th February
    , check in at the old reception house where Ronel and Herman will meet you. You then wander up the hill and set up camp or drive through the west side of the farm to the Log and Rock cabins. That night we will have a braai at the camp area and sit and meet new people if any or just catch up with old ones. Bring wood.
    NB# When it rains and gets windy, it rains and gets windy properly. So have proper camping gear. Trailers welcome.

    Next morning 6th February, we breakfast and meet at 08h00 am for the divers briefing at the camp. Then we do the main trail. Take along refreshments and something easy for lunch as we will stop along the way. This will take about 4 to 6 hours depending on no of vehicles and weather conditions. If it rains, it will be fun… trust me.
    After the trail we head back to camp, open a cold one, or hot one depending on the weather, and prepare a feast for all. Braai, potjie, whatever you want around a big fire. I will make a legendary Potjie to share.

    You do not have to camp the night before, so if you only want to arrive early on Saturday morning and join before the briefing, you may do so, then camp Saturday night. You do not have to do the trail if you just want to come and enjoy the view and braai.

    Sunday 7th February: Early breakfast again if you haven’t overdone it the night before and If you are up to it, drivers briefing once again at 08h00. We will then depart and do 2 short trails after consultation with Herman on which is best.
    This will either be: Bobbejaankrans- & Tierkloof trails, Tierkloof Extreme and or Walletjiestraat 4x4 Trail
    After these 2 or 3 trails, we head back to camp, have a quick lunch, pack up and head home. Nobody is rushed, so if you want to stay over again, you may do so.


    Accommodation:
    There are numerous accommodation options available from Camping to Log cabins to Rock chalets all around the farm
    Our 1st choice is below.
    Camping: Rooibektiptol Campsite
    This is where we will be camping

    Camping:
    There are 50 stands & space for +/- 70 persons – no electricity – You need to light a donkey for hot water (we provide wood)
    1 Vehicle & a maximum of 6 persons per stand are allowed.
    R220 for first 2 persons per stand per night plus
    R110 per person (Children from 3 years and up) for extra persons per stand.
    Children under 2 years are free.
    Important - please take note:
    There is an allocated generator area if you need to bring your own generator with. Please mention it when you confirm your booking.

    Bookings can be made directly to Ronel at 3 Provinces.
    Email: [email protected]
    Tel: 082 785 8002
    Website: 3Provinsies4x4.co.za




    4X4 TRAILS & ROUTES:
    When entering the property of 3 Provinces, the tariff of the 3 Provinces 4x4 main trail is also the Entry fee for any 4x4 vehicles, as well as the minimum fee payable when using any other 4x4 trails, when that other trail would be the only trail what is going to be done.
    We do not book quads when we have a 4x4 club booking, however it is possible if the club has no problem with it.

    3 Provinces main trail: 34 km takes 4-6 hours
    R320 per 4x4 vehicle
    R220 per quad or motorbike – bring your own quad (not for hire)
    Short trails
    Bobbejaankrans-&Tierkloof trails: 5km takes about 1 hours& 8km takes about 2 hours.
    Cost remains the same if you are doing either one or both trails
    R200 per 4x4 vehicle
    R165 per quad of motorfiets
    New Trails
    Walletjiestraat: 1km takes about hour and longer if it was raining.
    R100 per 4x4 vehicle
    R80 per quad or motorbike
    Tierkloof Extreme: 9km takes about 2-3 hours - Cannot be done if it was raining the night before.
    Need a Guide - trail is not marked
    R210 per 4x4 vehicle
    R175 per quad or motorbike

    Guys please note this is not a car damaging trail, but if you do something wrong it can kill you so, no drinking will be allowed before or on the trail, afterwards you can do as you please.

    Please make your own accommodation bookings and then confirm your booking here please- Please mention to Ronel that you are part of Rechardt's group for that weekend.
    I have a copy of the reservation form if you need it. PM me with your email address and I will send it to you or you can get it from Ronel.

    See you at camp!

    Has there been maintenance done to the trail? I'm just concerned about your comment "Not a car damage trail" last year we went and the felt/bush has started to overgrow the path, therefore getting a lot of pin-striping. also the rains have washed the route, so where the main route used to take ~ 1/2 a day to complete, it took us the whole day. Taking the Tunnel back was an interesting experience

    With the amount of rain we have been having I will be surprised if some parts are not washed away and challenging, Herman has had his hands full trying to maintain it week after week.
    I guess this is what makes us always go back to 3 Provinces. It never seizes to surprise or amaze us.

    I have confirmed with Ronel, yes there has been lots of rain but Herman is been very busy on the trails.
    Our weekend is open as there is no other big groups yet.
    So put your name on the list.

    This is one if of the best trips that you will do. In the rain the foofy slide will be fun.
