For those who are considering signing up for the Nossob 4x4 Eco Trail in KTP, I would highly recommend it. Below is the link to a trip report and many photos from our trail ride in April 2012. Enjoy!

Canuck-Robin-Chats,

Thanks for sharing a great trip report with us and all the beautifull landscape shots. Luckily you had a bit of rain making the dune rides easier. :clap: :clap: :clap: :wink:

Did any one tried out driving to the top of Bertha dune? :whistle:

Graham looks like an excellant guide and put in lots of effort fixing the road, watching out for predators and cleaning the fire. Well done Graham. :thumbs_up:

Also you had some excellant cooks on the trip that just make it more special. Glad to see you had such a great time in sunny SA. :dance: :dance: :dance: Just don't make us too :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thank you for sharing this with us, it was such a lovely read and I loved the photos of the scenery. The gemsbok pictures in the grass are very evocative. One question - what did you do to get around the aardvark hole?

We gave the hole a wide berth (because the tunnels can extend underground quite far beyond what is visible above ground), following carefully in the guide's tracks, as it was necessary for us to go off road.

Wow, I've just had a look at your trip report. What a wonderful time you had. What a wonderful place to go. Nice to be off the tourist roads and be really in the bush. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Canuck-Robin-Chats, this report has to be one of my best reads in a while :clap: :clap: I just HAVE to partake in one of these trails so now I think I will add it to our next years bookings!! A great advertisement for this trail with stunning pics too. Well organised and everyone seemed to just 'fit in' and get on with having a fabulous time. Thanks for sharing :thumbs_up:

Happy to learn that you enjoyed the report and photos. I would highly recommend the trail - it was a wonderful experience, and so different from our usual visits to Kgalagadi. Book early - the trail is very popular!
