    Default Ferndale Adventures 4x4 Weekend: 16-18 Oktober (Cathcart Area)

    EC Offroad Adventures will be doing the Ferndale Adventures 4x4 trail in 2 weeks time.

    We have driven this trail before and we cannot wait to do it again. Dirk has also done it a few years ago and if all goes well, the bright yellow Jeep will be joining us there!

    It's by far the best trail we will be doing in 2009, because this is the highest rated trail in the Eastern Cape and one of the best in South Africa according to Drive Out magazine.....and we fully agree with the magazine! There is a scenic trail and 2 extreme trails on the farm. We will only be doing the extreme trails. Come and experience the best the Eastern Cape has to offer the 4x4 enthusiast, but this is definately not for the faint hearted.

    Date: Friday, October 16, 2009 - 17:00 - Sunday, October 18, 2009 - 17:00

    Vehicle Cost: R290 (4x4 trail fee for the weekend)

    Other Costs: Camping R70 for adults, R50 for children.

    Meeting Place: Meet at the Ferndale campsite by no later than Friday evening.

    Entry Form:

    Directions to Meeting Place / Trail: Entering Cathcart from Queenstown on the N6, turn left at the 4-way stop street into Main Rd (right if coming from East London). At the Ferndale sign board (1st stop street / First National Bank), turn left. Travel 2km out of town. Turn right at the Henderson/Bacela sign. Travel for 23km down into Henderson valley. Turn right at the Ferndale Campsite and 4x4 sign (at the hangar & windsock) and follow the road for 1km to the campsite on Thomas River at the base of the krans (cliff).

    4x4 Experience Required: Good driving experience required.

    4x4 Equipment Required: Ensure that your vehicle has correctly rated recovery points!

    Other Requirements: A sense of humour! A sense of adventure! Snacks and drink for the trail. (NO ALCOHOL DURING TRAIL) We will be camping, so you just supply all your own camping equipment and food for the weekend. We will provide the fire wood!

    Vehicle Types: 4x4 with low range. Diff-lock is highly recommended as well as good ground clearance. Most standard vehicles will stuggle unless you are a highly experienced driver. Standard vehicles will also be more vulnerable to possible damage. NO 4x2's or low slung SUV's.

    Trail Length: 6-8 hours. It will be a long and hard day's 4x4 driving!

    If you are interested and want more info, please post here, or contact me directly via a pm or e-mail.
