Hi all,

Friends of mine are staying at Varswater campsite in December. I would like to visit them, but I don't have a 4x4 anymore.

Will I be able to make it with an Isuza D-Teq 4x2?

I do have some sand driving experience and they recon if I deflate to about 0.8 bar, I should be fine. :hmz:

Some photo's of the tracks will also be appreciated.


Thanks.

Wessie, if you are entering from Koekenaap and drive up north to Varswater you should have no problem with a normal 4x2 with high ground clearance.

The sandy parts are still to the north of Varswater towards Hondeklip bay.

Thanks Blackie.

Just found out that a colegue of mine is going to Delwers the same time.

If I get stuck, I'll just get him to assist. :D

Wessie, I doubt it that you will get stuck on that road. Just deflate your tyres once off the tar to around 1.5 and if you hit thick sand take it further down to about 1 - 1.2 and you should be fine with some momentum.

Blackie.
