Geocache Description:

Lucky Strike

For 4X4 enthusiasts!!

The location for this cache hunt is at the De Wildt 4X4 Game Park.  It is recommended that you do the course which should take no longer than 2-3 hours.  There are another two caches in the reserve, one of which is also on the course, so it will be well worth the effort.  The fee to do the course is R140 per vehicle (includes 2 people) plus R30 each for additional people.  It is also possible to cycle (mountain-bikes of course) in which case the cost is R40 per bicycle.  One can opt to hike, but unfortunately I’m uncertain of the cost there, if any (a day visit costs R30 per person).  The reserve claims that you will see more game in one hour than in a week in Kruger (that wasn’t our experience but we may have been unlucky, like we are at Kruger).  Accommodation is also provided.  For further information go to .

The above co-ordinates will NOT take you to the cache.  To find the exact location you will need to solve the following from WPT1.

Using the Afrikaans word provided, make up two English words formed by using all the letters.  Each letter may only be used once. 

* The first word’s definition is “that which grows from little acorns”  Use only the first word.

* The second word’s definition is “was in a state of conflict and uncertainty between two opposing options”

Once you have the two words apply the following to arrive at the final waypoints for this cache hunt.  It may be possible to solve these two words without doing WPT1.  If this is the case, you can simply confirm this when you arrive at WPT1 and continue on your way.

Assume that a=1, b=2, c=3, etc. and that word one is 1 and word two is 2.

Calculate:  S2y ab.cde

                  E2Z AB.CDE

y        = ([2.2]-10)

ab      = ([2.1]*2)

cde    = ([1.3]*[2.3]*5)-([1.1]+[2.2])

Z        = number of letters at WPT1

AB      = ([2.1]*2)+([2.2]+[1.2])

CDE   = ([1.3]*[2.1]*4)+([1.3]-3)

Enjoy the hunt!
