    Default Monteco closed?

    Hallo all,

    I just called Monteco's number and got a message that they're closed to the public and are not taking any more bookings for camping or the 4x4 routes.

    Anybody know what's the story here?

    A couple of us just starting out in 4x4 wanted to go away for a weekend and were looking for an area near Cape Town that has a few easy-ish trails to do and Monteco seemed to fit the bill.

    Any other suggestions perhaps?

    cheers

    Eish... that'll be very bad news! I know the farm was sold a while back with talks that the new owner wanted to close down the 4x4 trails.

    Glad i had the opportunity to visit there. A magnificent group of trails and a not so bad camping site, with mossies.
    Nice pool after a long days drive. Some nice water crossings there as well. I know Simon also enjoyed it.

    Confirmed by neighbours. The new owners are going to reestablish facilities. They may reopen in a few years time again.
