It is standard 4x4 practice to get out and inspect the road ahead in a situation like this, but Park's standard policy never to leave your vehicle is in contradiction. I believe Park's should make an exception in a situation like this - allowing to leave the vehicle for road inspection (on own risk), or stop allowing 4x4ing on roads where it is necessary to do so.

WeskusKlong, as far as I know you are allowed to leave your vehicle on the 4x4 routes. I cannot find any rules relating to the 4x4 routes in particular but:
.........You should take great care at all times, especially when alighting from your vehicle, and keep well away from animals...........

From here.
We'll ask Lesego to confirm.... or not. :)



I have sent an email to Mapungubwe to get more clarity on this :thumbs_up:
