Sorry to tell you but the Leeuwdrill 4x4 trail is closed indefinitely due to lack of respect from drivers who have severely damaged the dunes ... :wall:

Sad news.Was hoping to drive it the end of this month.A special privilege destroyed by selfish people who thought it was their own personal 4x4 racetrack and playground.

that is sad news indeed
I just advised some one to do this trail visiting the park during a short stay coming all the way from the other side of earth looking for the Kgalagadi feeling

Is there any plans for this trail to be reopened?

I'll be there in May and really want to drive it.
