Trip to Namaqua National Park

Post by Mauro » 07 Nov 2017 16:56

Hi, My name is Mauro and I need some advice on the road condition bertween Groen River and Hondeklip Baai where the campsites are situated. I will be camping at the Kwass se Baai campsite at the end of August next year.
I will drive a Patrol 4.5 Petrol towing a "4x4" caravan (1600 kg GVM). As far as I know there are deep sand streches. Anybody has experience about it?
Thank you.

Welcome Mauro. My dad drove it a couple of years ago. 2.7 Hilux with a heavy camper body.

He came across the stuck fortuners, one with a caravan, and managed to tow them both through after getting them to deflate.

If you deflate properly, you should be ok?

Thanks Peter for the advice. The problem is that usually I deflate when it is too late but on this occasion I will try to remember it at the right time. :biggrin:
