    Default Jobedi Game Reserve

    Hi there guys

    So leaving for Jobedi tomorrow for about 2 days and then the Kruger.
    Was thinking of doing the 4x4-trails at Jobedi but have read threads that suggests it's a no-go for non-serious drivers. We are driving a LR Discovery II with C/difflock and a LC 100 VX with C/difflock and R/difflock (R/difflock not working...I think).

    As far as I know, there are two routes, one difficult and the other one not so difficult...ofcourse we don't want any damage as we still have a long way to drive.

    So what do you guys suggest we do, stay away or go for it?? Which route should we rather take to avoid damage but still have some fun??

    If someone has some photos of them doing one of the trails, I would appreciate it alot if you could share....

    Thanks
    Armand

    all the rough sections can be bypassed I suggest have a look and decide on the conditions, also I did it with a 2002 Disco 2 no CDL. With enough roadbuilding in certain places its not so bad.

    Hi Armand

    We were there at the same time. If I only saw this before we went I would have came and said 'Hi'. We did the whole trial with a Terracan and had to do a lot of road building in some places. One section we did showed it was 4x2 friendly and I found that this section required 4x4. I did point this out to them when we left on Sunday morning. Will certainly go there again.

    We plan to go camping there end of Feb 2011. What is the camping spot like? Ablutions? Shade?

    Lots of shade en grass ( not lawn, but great for camping )
    3 Ablution blocks, of which two had hot water.
    Massive big swimming pool - not at the camp sites, probably about 400 meters walk
    Make sure you visit the "Swemgat" - does not seem to keep the water in, but still a great spot to visit

    Can anybody please tell me more on the facilities at Jobedi? Are the ablutions clean?

    There where three ablution blocks when I was there last year. Two with hot water. I think the other one was in the process of being equipped with a gas heater. The facilities are basic, but they where well maintained and clean ( at the time).

    Would I go again? Absolutely!

    Default Jobedi Photographs

    Some more shots from our December 2010 visit. Why does it feel such along time ago

    The 4x4 section at Tierkloof probably does not look too bad on these photos, but there was just no way that my Ranger was equipped for that piece of road, neither did I think that my level of experience was sufficient to tackle that part of the trail.

    Except for the two really difficult sections ( that you can avoid by taking an escape route), the rest of the track is really nice. Start early, take a big cooler and picnic basket and enjoy lunch in the bush.

    Take walking shoes and mountain bikes if you have them, (they have a couple for rent, but some of them are a bit battered) You are allowed to walk and cycle over the whole of the reserve.

    PeetS,

    Nice pics!

    We camped there this weekend for the first time. You were posting your pics while we were there!

    Far to drive, but worth it. Friendly reception, ablutions slightly run down, very basic but clean. Nice shade.

    We have not experienced such a variety of trees, animals and birds in a long time. We enjoyed the game drives so much we never got round to the 4x4 trails - perhaps next time!

    PS (I differ with the Stamvrug caption - it is probably a Mispel or Moepel? But it could be a regional name too - not sure?)

    When we left there I wondered if I should ever say anything about the place or just keep it a secret....

    Jammer vir jou Subok. Dankie Bogaards, vir die inligting. Reeds besig om plek te bespreek

    Ok - as dit dan moet....geniet dit!

    Pasop net - die pad tussen Nylstroom en Vaalwater is in aanbou en is baie gevaarlik met diep uitgrawings langs die pad, slaggate, swaar vragmotors. 3.5 ure gery van Centurion af op 'n Vrydagmiddag.

    En geen 50ppm in sig nie...

    Vaalwater SPAR het ook die nuutste Weg tydskrif sodat jy nie die hoenderpotjie resep uit jou kop uit hoef te maak as jy al die bestanddele saamgebring het, maar die resep is by die huis...

    SUBOK, die stamvrug lyk nogal anders as die wat ek ken van ons plaas naby Lydenburg, maar daar kom heelwat Mispels voor en ek moet erken ek het nog nooit 'n rooi een gesien nie. Die ander Stamvrug_1 foto hierby is uit die Kruger en Mapumalanga boomboek. Die stamvrugte wat ek van die plaas af ken, dra ook die meerederheid van die vrugte so teen die die stam, en die minderheid aan die takke. Miskien is dit wat ek as stamvrug afgeneem het, iets heeltemal anders. Die vrugte was egter redelik gewild onder die plaaslike bobejaan bevolking. Ons het heelwat gekoude vruggies in die pad gekry.

    Bly julle het die plek geniet!

    Die naam van die vrug wat julle oor wonder is n suurpruim.As hy ryp is soos op die foto,is hy inderdaad soet.Rol hom so 3 keer in jou mond en spoeg dan uit.Te veel van hulle maak jou tong rou.

    Ja - jou stamvrug fotos is hoe ek meneer Magaliesmontanum ken. Van die grootse voorbeelde by Jobedi gesien, alhoewel dit op plekke in die Magaliesberg se klowe 'n stamomtrek van seker naby 'n meter het, veral waar daar baie water en min lig is en moet uithaal om by te hou by die kiepersolle, witstinkout en karees.
