The Best 4 x 4 Tours in Johannesburg for the Off-road Adventure Seeker
Johannesburg is known as the financial capital of South Africa and the continent, but it is also abuzz with a very active and passionate off-road 4×4 community. Johannesburg residents frequently feel the urge to escape the city’s urban buzz and venture out into the great outdoors. In addition, visitors to the city seeking to experience another side to the modern and cosmopolitan offering Johannesburg has to offer also fall in this group.
For those looking for a destination that is easy to reach for a day or an overland trip, there are a number of excellent 4×4 trails to choose from. If you do not have your own 4×4, you can also hire a 4×4 off-road vehicle to enjoy an exciting tour in Johannesburg’s rugged surrounds.
