I heard a talk on RSG radio about 3 weeks ago where a proposed new (vehicle) overland trail was discussed by a member of the HR's - it is called the Mafunyane trail which will operate in the area that was this famous elephants home range .

Any official news from SanParks on this ?

HI, Ndloti

It is indeed true that we are planning to open the Mafunyane Trail by 1 April 2014. We are currently in the final stage of this project and will only have a brochure about this trail early next year.

The trail is not yet open. Some of the facilities were used to accommodate the Nyalaland wilderness trail after its facilities were destroyed during the February floods. This prevented the launch of the trail.

The eco trail will open next year, probably in April, after the rainy season.

Visitors may however participate in another rustic experience which utilises some of the overnight facilities:
