Trip Report - Leeuwenkloof 4x4 Adventure Trail
We went past a few points of interest, a mine tunnel that was dug by hand, which most of our group climbed through and exited further down the valley, the open cast mine and firing kiln used by Willemís family that had worked this land many years ago in removing lead and calcite from the rock used in different applications. This made such a pleasant change from just trail driving. Read the full trip report here.


Trip Report - Spookspruit 11 July 2020
It was a rather cold day to start and the rain bucketed down on the drive down there. We started off with 12 vehicles and finished with 14 and we had to do a recovery on the first muddy obstacle. Read more on this trip report here.
