I got the following email from Gideon van Zyl this morning.
Jis Thys

Wil jy nie vir ons dit gaan opsit op die forum nie. Ek is eers more weer op die internet. Dankie

Dit was voorheen familie van my se plaas in Redelinghuys. Daar het ek my eerste en enigste land rover bestuur in die tagtigs, ek was 15 en hy is bleikbaar nog steeds daar op die plaas en loop nog steeds, 27 jaar later. Hy was saam met die plaas verkoop nadat die oom oorlede is.

Ons kan nog eendag die roete gaan doen, klink baie uitdagend.

Here's the piece he wanted me to post.

Izak & Marinda

We drove this trail in 2007 and it was a lot of fun. Apparently their camping facilities have improved a lot since that time, when Izak was busy increasing the number of campsites and ablutions facilities.

Jakkalskloof is situated close to many Sandveld trails and a nice challenge (breakaway) would be to make a 4 day weekend and drive a different trail in the vicinity every day. Klein Tafelberg, Scheppie Saus, Koningskop, Marcuskraal are all within an hours drive from Jakkalskloof.. :thumbup: :thumbup:
