    Default The Downs

    I have a trip to Tzaneen soon and was thinking of driving The Downs from the R37 side up to Tzaneen. Has anybody driven it recently that can give me an idea if it is ok to drive it as a sigle 4x4.

    Thanks for the reply's the R37 is full of mines mostly platinum so there is a good chance the Downs road has mines on it. I have heard it is very scenic and if it has been done with 4x2 then I am going to go that way. I will give feed back whe I get back.
