For those visiting the PE/J-bay area over December, I'll be at the Brakkeduine dune trail on the above mentioned dates. Join me there if you want.

Some info and directions:

The trail fee is R200 per vehicle

Time: Meet at the trail at 9am

Waypoint: S 34 07.796 E 24 33.944

Directions to the trail:
Humansdorp down mainstreet , turn right at T. 1km turn left to Oysterbay . Proceed to Oysterbay turn off 19km ( do not turn left ) carry on straight for 5.5km turn left to Palmietvlei. 3.5km turn left at Brakkeduine . 1Km to bridge, after bridge turn right at 4x4 sign. 1Km take right hand at Y to camp site

Trail description:
This trail is by far the most popular trail in the Eastern Cape. It features a sand driving experience you cannot find anywhere else close to PE. This a must do trail and even if you have been there before, it is never the same more than once and it's always a great experience.
Although some driving experience will help you, this trail is often driven by complete novices, so anyone with a suitable 4x4 is welcome.

4x4 with low range preferred. Some low slung vehicles will struggle, and some vehicles without low range will do well in the sand. NO 4x2 vehicles allowed.

What you need to bring:
-For the trail, make sure you have a tyre guage, there is a big compressor to inflate your tyres again.
-Bring your own snacks and drinks for the trail. NO ALCOHOL allowed on the trail at all, so don't even think about it!

Toemaar Thomas, ons het toe nie 19de gegaan nie.

Probeer vir Woensdag as jy kan. Die sand is lekker nat op die oomblik so jou MTR's sal goed werk, al het jy nie die wêreld se krag nie.
