Wel probably start our adventure at 10 so a trail that doesnt take longer than say 4 hours. Would like to be back by 5 latest. I stay in jhb so something not further than about 1 to 1,5 hrs drive...

Ive been to hennops, de wildt, groenkloof, basslake and kungwini, so id like to try some place new. I can handle a grade 3 to 4 and i dont mind side step damage. I have an old damaged set on my fortuner now that i use for trails. I have a brand new set at home that i want to sell. When i save enough i plan on putting rock sliders.

Can you guys suggest some place...

You could try Rhino Park (I think they only have one Sunday per month and you need to book) and not far from Kungwini or Sandwani which is about 30km north of Pretoria - nice scattered obstacles. There should be some photos and videos of previous GTGs there.

Would like to know more about these trails as my FT is also stock with no lift/mods etc.

Aside from this I'm also a novice and only been to Hennops.
