I can't remember now, but I think a 4x2 with diff lock is also allowed. Will try to find out.

I do not see much info on the forums regarding this trail - and we did it a year ago. Here are pics I took then.

We loved it and thought it was very scenic. Had some nice sightings along the way too.

Yes, very easy to miss. And we did. The track along the tele lines is NOT the route to go.... as we discovered after a good while when according to the gps were traveling away from the Olifants River, instead of towards it :roll:
