The launch of the two Adventure Trails will also see the existing Nonokani 4 x 4 Adventure Trail which runs through the wilderness areas of Phalaborwa section up to the Olifants River being permanently closed. “We experienced a number of visitor related problems in the past that affected the experience of tourists who took part in the Nonokani 4 x 4 Adventure Trail and that is the reason we are closing it now;” said Mr Ben van Eeden, the Regional Manager of Nxanatseni Region.

Furthermore the trail will be closed as of from the afternoon, 31 Oct 2009.

What a shame, what a loss :evil: . To think that the actions of a few flippen hooligans have ruined this :evil: :sniper: . What about the other trails? Are they also going to be closed?

Unfortunately the damage has been done, but what the authorities should have done, and that is just a suggestion, is to allow only 4X4 owners on the trail, who are members of an accredited 4X4 club and who are in possession of a letter recommendation from the club.

Unfortunately it won't help with the chancers who just illegally go down the route thinking their standard cars will be good enough! :evil:
But I agree, what a great pity it is spoilt for the genuine 4 x 4 visitors.

Here you could enjoy this most beautiful view , the Xanatseni South regional manager informed me that the reason for closing it was that there was at times a visual impact of 4x4 trailists for the Olifants back pack trailists walking on the opposite river bank .
