A SPECIAL AND UNIQUE DESTINATION IN THE SANDVELD
13 – 15 JULY 2018
GOOD COMBINATION OF SAND & MOUNTAIN DRIVING
of obstacles on the trail. This is definitely one of the more exciting trails in the Western Cape, offering a good combination of mountain and sand driving, where drivers’ negotiation skills will be tested. Cederberg 4x4’s previous visit to this 4x4 trail was more than 3 years ago and therefore worth the long overdue visit.
The trail consists of two sections. The first section of the Jakkalskloof 4x4 trail, to be driven on Saturday, consists mainly of sand in a riverbed, offering a variety of challenges to participants and ensuring great excitement for all. As sand driving is always very popular, this section of the Jakkalskloof 4x4 will be the highlight for sand driving lovers. The second section of the trail consists mainly of tracks in the mountains with a variety of challenges and technical driving sections. The guidance through some of these obstacles by your co-driver or guide will be an advantage. Peace of mind can be enjoyed by all drivers in regard to the safety of vehicles and passengers due to the many options of bypasses at some of the more difficult obstacles, reducing possible vehicle damage to a minimum. Further reassurance with regard to safety will be enjoyed being surrounded by like-mined people while enjoying the benefits of an experienced guide sharing many helpful driving hints and tips regarding obstacle negotiating, safety when recovering stuck vehicles and environmentally friendly habits.
The camp offers top class ablutions facilities, a Lapa for social get-togethers and a swimming pool that is always very popular, especially during the warm summer months. Very few of the trails we visit, throughout the country, offer this type of top class facilities at their campsites. Spoil yourselves in more ways than one and join other enthusiasts on this weekend in the Sandveld, where you will take home many highlights experienced and share them with your friends and family on your return.

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 spare fuse for this excursion.
