Does somebody drive recently this 4x4 trail ?
Is it a one way drive ? Can you stop and get out at some places ?(at our own risks, I suppose)
Easy drive in july or need some some technical 4x4 drive knowledge ?

Hi Dalene

My apology for late reply. I am currently in the field and unable to access my emails during the day. I only have a chance to respond in the evening between 22:00 - 00:00.

Please note that Madlhabantu has not been used by guests since January floods. The conditions made it difficult for graders to repair the road as it was wet for most of the time. It is a one way road and people are not allowed to get out of their vehicles. We expect the road to be accessible at least by late July.

Way to burn the midnight oil, Stephens. :clap:

Let us know how things go for your trip, Goronta! The adventure trails are something I'm keen to try but haven't had a chance yet.

Hi,

Can anyone advise if this trail is still operational?

Is it at all possible to pre-book?

Hi Stephan, we will try and find out if it is open again; but I do know you cannot pre book. You can only book on the day you want to do the trail, at reception, when they open at 7am; or the night before.

Hi again Stephan

Lesego followed up with Kruger:

It is still closed and was scheduled to be fixed during March but the floods past weeks disrupted the schedule.
