    Default 4x4 Trails in & around KZN

    I wanted to see if there were some 4x4 Trails in KZn or near by, that i could go on since my kids are still very small; and long trips will not work for me at the moment.
    Did some research and came up with quite a few that one can have a look at going on for a weekend. I tried to get the most accurate info.
    If anybody has been on these trails, and can update the grading or other info on them - it will benefit us all. If you know of others i missed, we would all love to hear about them too!
