Join like-mined outdoor people for a fun-filled family day with activities for each member of the family. Atlantis Dunes is always a popular venue for a day of great family fun. On Sunday 30 April, Cederberg 4x4 will be hosting a family fun-day filled with activities for each member of the family. You will have the choice of partaking in one or all of the activities mentioned above or just enjoying a relaxing day in Atlantis Dunes exploring the area in your own time. Once all have arrived at the rendezvous point we will depart to the communal activity point in the dunes where base camp will be made for the day. Participant will have the choice of partaking in as many activities as they wish.

 

GPS Treasure Hunt


A GPS will be required to partake in this activity. You will be required to find 12 x treasures in the Atlantis Dune area after receiving the GPS coordinates at the communal activity point after base camp has been set in the dunes. There will be a time limit placed on the GPS Treasure hunt, adding to the level of excitement. Scoring will be based on the most correct answers in the least time required in finding all the hidden treasures.

 

Blind Driving Competition


The blind driving competition will be completed in low-range 1st gear ensuring the safety of driver, vehicle, co-driver and spectators. A specific course with various types of obstacles will be required to be driven by the blindfolded driver receiving all the instructions from his/her co-driver. Each obstacle will carry a specific number of points and for each mistake points will be deducted. There will be no time limit on this event. The winners will be the driver and co-driver with the highest points upon completion of all the obstacles in the shortest time.

 

Sand boarding

 

The base camp will be set in close proximity to a dune that is sand boarding friendly for the children and within sight of the parents at the base camp. Should you have your own sand board, you are welcome to bring it along. Even adults may wish to try their hand at sand boarding.

 

Communal activity point/Base camp


As Atlantis Dune does not offer any natural shade, we suggest you bring an awning, gazebo or sun umbrella to create your own shade for the day. Remember your table and chairs. You have the option of bringing your gas braai to cook your lunch or bring a picnic lunch. No fires are allowed in Atlantis Dunes.

29 MHz TWO WAY RADIOS

 

Communication between participating vehicles on any 4x4 excursion is important for many reasons.  It ensures the safety of drivers, passengers and vehicles while on a 4x4 trail, where drivers can communicate with one another as regards to their location and situation, not to mention the interesting information that is shared with participants.  The fun part is the many interesting stories that are shared among participants.
 
We suggest all 4x4 vehicles that don’t have a 29MHz two-way radio, HIRE one from us at a nominal fee of R200-00 for this excursion.

 

Should you be hiring a 29MHz radio, please ensure that your lighter socket is working.  If you intend running more than one item from the lighter socket, ensure to have a double adapter handy as well as a spare fuse for this excursion. 

 

NB:  If your vehicle is fitted with a 29MHz radio, please make sure that channels 1, 14 and 23 are open and working for this excursion.

 

Should you wish to make a once-off investment and purchase a 29MHz radio, we have negotiated a special deal for all Cederberg 4x4 participants.  For more information, contact Marina on 021 910 1363.
