Papkuilsfontein 4×4 route.
The 4×4 trail of Papkuilsfontein is about 16 km long with the turning point at the magnificent Oorlogskloof canyon. The trail has a difficulty rating of 3-4. It extends over rocky mountainous ground, which can be wet in winter. The road climbs gradually to the edge of a 180-meter canyon with breathtaking views. It then follows the edge of the canyon with a view to both the left and right of Oorlogskloof canyon and also the Oorlogskloof Nature Reserve. Both low range and diff lock is required at eg Skerpioenkloof. The difficult sections, and there are a few, are named after the emotional responses of some of the farm workers involved in the construction of the trail. Omdraai, by way of example, is where the tractor driver refused to proceed any further for fear of rolling over.
What the trail lacks in length, it makes up for in the degree of difficulty. Progress is slow for most of the way – but as a driver you are never bored.
When the canyon falls in your rear view mirror, the track turns and heads back towards the Teekampie, along the so-called Houtpad section. It’s a comfortable grade 2 all the way back to camp – an easy half hour ramble in high range. If you do not want to camp, opt for the very comfortable and beautiful cottages on the farm.
