Are dongas all kinds of holes or only the canyon-like ones washed out by erosion?

Re: What is a "donga" exactly?

Dongas are gullies washed out by erosion Toks, usually about 8 foot deep. The radical 4x4 competitions are usually held in or near a donga which forms one or some of the obstacles.

The Landy and your Hilux would make a pair MD, it's got just on 300,000 kilometers on the clock. Also fitted with long range fuel tank, water tank x 2, winch, Terrafirma suspension, drawer system etc, but certainly no red shuvel or chrome anywhere to be found, just a good solid overlander.
