    Thumbs up Jakkalskraal - 40km into the mountains near Plettenberg Bay

    My dad had a job to do out on a farm and he was told that a 4x4 was needed to get there, so i volunteered my services for the day.
    I bought my little girl, a 2005 SSangyong Korando 2.3l Petrol, about a year ago and to be honest, she hasn't done too much offroading in her time with me as i've been busy with work and haven't had a lot of free time to take her out.
    I've done a few trails and tested out the low range on a few more hectic sections, but nothing prolonged.
    Well, today was the day. A nice early 8.30am Saturday overcast morning start...
    I knew it was all gravel once we left the N2 and headed past Wittedrift towards Angies G-Spot on Route 62 at DeVlugt, but i was nowhere near mentally prepared for what we found!
    It turned into a 3 hour drive out from Plett. We stopped a few times for breakfast and some photos, so i'm guessing the actual off-road was around 2h of driving out there and around 2.5h return as we had to do a slight detour to look at another cottage on the way back.
    The road started off with loose rock up and down the hills, and got gradually worse, to the point a small kid coulda gotten lost in some of those ruts where the water had cut into the road on the steeper hills!
    It was a zig zag path up the mountain, and down the other side, trying to keep the tyres on the highest point so as to avoid catching the underside on the loose rocks.
    It was bloody good fun though, and, being my first proper offroad experience, something i definitely want more of!
    There were sections where i wondered if my girl was gonna make it, but after engaging Low Range she just climbed up even the steepest bits of rugged track! I was seriously impressed! Not a seconds problems at all, and all the time I was getting a lot better feel for handling and positioning on the inclines and declines.
    We had a river crossing across the upper parts of the Keurbooms river too, over medium sized round river rock, and she bounded over them with no worries at all. Thankful i think for a bit of a wash on the way through!
    So we arrived there, my dad did the bit of work he needed to at the main farmhouse, and we were given instructions to the cottage by the river that we needed to visit on the way back...
    It was a 10km detour which returned to the track we had driven in on, so we didn't need to back track which was nice.
    As I was leaving, one of the guys who work on the farm asked me how my girl had handled the trip up there. I replied that she'd been sweet.
    He warned me that the road to the cottage was pretty bad in places...
    So, forewarned, we set off to find the cottage, about 7km away...
    We turned off of the main track and onto the cottage track and it didn't seem too bad at all. About 3km in the road started to wind downhill and the terrain got a bit worse. Loose gravel and rock and deep ruts, so the zig zagging returned again to try find the best lines.
    The road also started to get more and more overgrown as we drove, with the middle man mostly fynbos and grass as high as the bonnet!
    I took it pretty slowly cos i was not sure what was under the grass that i might hit!
    Finally, after a few more up and downs slowly getting more and more enveloped by the forest, we saw the cottage by the side of the river and a small dam.
    I parked her on the main (if you could call it that) track and we took a walk to the cottage to have a quick look at sum things and then returned.
    By now it was approaching 3pm and with the overcast weather not having lifted, it was starting to get a bit darker and we were still in the middle of nowhere! I think if a plane had flown over us they would have struggled to see a car in the foliage we were pushing our way through! Haha!
    I'm pretty sure that no car had passed this way in a good couple of years!
    As we ventured further along this track, with the hope of meeting up with the main return track at some point, the vegetation grew all the closer and higher!
    In some sections, there were baby pine trees already growing in the middle of the road, maybe roof height, which i had no way of avoiding, so everything just got slowly driven over and popped up again behind us as it finished cleaning the undercarriage!
    Then we came to a steep downhill and a small river at the bottom with a very steep exit uphill on the other side.
    I could immediately see that we would never have the entry and exit angles to get out the other side, so we stopped and walked ahead to scout out the stream.
    We collected rocks from further down the stream and piled them up to make a crossing. I then slowly edged her forward in Low Range with the guided help of my dad from the front until i was over the stream and headed up the other side. Not even a slip of the tyres! Very impressed indeed!
    Eventually, after another half hour of driving over all manner of trees and newly sprouting foliage, we joined up with the main track again, and headed back towards DeVlugt, still another 1.5h drive away.
    Where we had driven in up steep rutted hills, we were now slowly making our way down trying to keep out of the holes and ruts and not to scrape the bottom or get stuck anywhere.
    We finally joined up with the Wittedrift road just as it was going dark, around 5pm! A long day in the wilderness!
    After what we had just spent the better part of a day traversing, the gravel of the Wittedrift dirt road felt like the N2 highway, and the N2 felt like we were gliding on glass!
    I must say that i am seriously impressed with my girls handling of everything that was thrown at her today! I know for sure that my driving skills certainly have improved after the day out, and this has made me even more excited to get out and do it all over again...maybe not that exact route, but certainly some more technical trails in the near future!
    I have heard from others with 4x4's that the Korando is a tough little bugger and can hold her own on even the most difficult of terrain, and after today, i can well believe that.
    Its been a brilliant day out, and a lot of fun.
    The bug has truly bitten and i cant wait to get out and do it again!
    To my little girl..."very well done!"
    And to all you Ssangyong drivers out there....don't let anyone put you down cos you own a Korean import...we'll go anywhere they can go with their much more expensive fancy cabbies!
    Peace

    Two years later - can you believe it! Time really flies!

    Het toe oorspronklike fiber glass snorkel uit Singapoer uit gekry vir die Musso. Bilstein shocks, 17" rims en General Grabber 265/65/R17 later...

    Hi Nitebob,

    Dit was so R2800 met invoerkostes ingesluit. Ek is deel van die Ssangyong forum van Australie en UK en het toe gehoor van die snorkel. Ek moes so bietjie speurder speel om dit in die hande kry. Dit was die laaste een wat beskikbaar was.

    Visited Honingklip Farm today with my Rexton. Was surprised by how far I was actually able to go, but chickened out at the last 1/4 of the trail, where the 'Big Red Hill' () started. Walked the last major uphill and the rains must have turned that uphill from a Grade 3 to a Grade 4, because I couldn't see us going up there without any diff lockers!

    Was extremely surprised what I could do and where I could go with my standard Rexton! Very pleased with her!! Will post the pics later...

    Some of the pictures as promised from my trip to Honingklip Farm 4x4 Trail with my In-Laws…
    There was a section classified as grade 3 during which we did not take any photographs, which we both made it through. As previously stated, very impressed with the Rexton's performance and ability.
    The Honingklip Farm trail is in a truly beautiful location with stunning views and a challenging course which I would most definitely recommend and attempt to do again in the future...
