HI all.

I popped into Debengeni falls for 10 minutes on the way home from Phalaborwa. I must say that you have to give credit to the relevant departments that manage the place.

Yes the road is still very bumpy but it is "Tazz-able" without to much trouble.

The one comment that I have is that we found the place a little tricky to find when we went there two years ago. Some of the sign had fallen down/been removed and once you turned onto the road leading up to the falls you were never quite sure until you go to the entrance that you were on the right road but since then, nice new signs have been put up in both directions on the main road so that you know exatcly where to turn off and there is a big board announcing the debengeni falls picnic site and telling you how far ahead along the sand road the fals are.

In addition the picnic sites at the falls seem to be enjoying a better standard of upkeep than previously and there was a lady there with her broom sweeping the paths and the parking area and you could see that the picninc site had recently been swept of all leaves etc.

Overall I must complimnt all who are involved in keeping the site well maintained. It was pleasurable to beging with but it seems that the level of upkeep has been improved even further.

Well done!

All roads are Tazz-able!!!! If you drive it right! :P

If more people knew that, 4x4 sales would drop by 90% :D

It is with great sadness that I heard that Toyota have stopped production of this awsome model :(

What will I do for my next car if I can't afford a Land Cruiser as a replacement? <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

Get yourself a rental car. Not even a landcruiser can compare!

Jenny Norman was relating a story to me of a Tazz rental car that came all the way succesfully down Sani Pass even after the raod had been closed from the SA side due to a rock fall.

We have to sadly bid farewell to one of the best cars in the last 20 years in my opinion. Price vs performance... no contest. Yes the Yaris is probably equally as sturdy as the tazz, after all it is a toyota but at the same time is is considerably more expensive.

I notice that VW apparently did an about turn on the chico and after both them and toyta decided to discontinue their chap models, VW decided to keep theirs on. Is the chico going to become the new tazz?

I know too many people who have rolled their citi golf on a dirt road to know that off road, it is no comparison to a Tazz. Sad but true :(

I think many passengers in my car who have screamed their way down a windy mountain sand road will confess that the suspension on a Tazz is just awesome.

I dare anyone to come with me to Debengeni from the Polokwane side on the R71. That mountain pass down into Magoebaskloof from Haenetsburg.....
