Dalk kan ek saam met iemand ry. Julle moet 'n fotograaf ook saamvat want daar was nie regtig tyd vir foto's neem nie, ons moes die heeltyd pad bou...
Anton, hoekom nie met jou Patrol nie?

Done this twice and do not underestimate it. All depends what time of the season you do it. Early in the season, everything is washed away and it is very tough. Later in the season, becomes easier and easier as many before have built a road.

I have been doing some research (looking at youtube videos) and the Caravan up Baboons Pass was incorrectly named... It should have been Baboons take caravan up pass!! :naughty:

Anyway looking at the various videos I would say that the big killer here is people overloading vehicles. I will be packing light.

I will probably bringing the fandamily along and leaving them at a resort while we do the trip...

Ja, Michael, at that altitude, the "every tree is lavatory" motto does not work so well, as the bushes are quite small to hide behind.
