Not that big, not that hectic, but still around knee deep in places.

The Southern Cape has really got some awesome places to ride.

About 10 years ago on my XT 500, Biedouw Valley in the Cedarberg...made it through even though I forgot to take the height of the airbox into account  :)

The air intake is a very good design on the KTM 950/990. The height of the snorkel. Many a bike will suck water, where the KTM is still sucking air!

Yip, my 950 can go much deeper than the 300, just make sure the airbox is water tight!! :thumleft:
