Three Southern African 4 x 4 Trails to Conquer in 2017
Aside from the many excellent 4×4 tours the Pretoria region has on offer, there are many more exciting trails that await in the rest of Southern Africa. Thrill seekers cannot deny the world of driving possibilities when presented with a map of the region and all the world-class routes available to them. Oftentimes 4×4 enthusiasts are not satisfied with any other tours except the ones that lead to areas that cannot be reached via normal roads, but just by off-road it with an appropriate 4×4 vehicle.
Southern Africa has an off-road culture like nowhere else in the world, and attracts adventure seekers from all over the globe every year. Our exciting trails are often described as a world within one country. But with so many other countries within close proximity, there really is a lot more possibility to explore.
African Ranches River Camp – Botswana
If you are in the mood for something else this year other than a 4×4 tour in the Pretoria or Gauteng region, head to the African Ranches River Camp in Botswana. This bushwhacked experience is aimed at city slickers who want to head back into the heart of nature in one of the most wildlife-rich countries on earth. This campsite is ideal for anyone looking for a stopover on their way to the northern part of Botswana. It is the best place to unwind before you hit those off-road trails in your 4×4.
Baviaans Kouga 4×4 – Eastern Cape Parks
If you are looking for a scenic way to reach the camping area within the Baviaans Kouga, this trail is where you should be headed. Baviaanskloof is also a World Heritage Site, and this just adds to the unrivalled natural beauty of the area.
De Wildt – Pretoria North, Magaliesberg
As a popular 4×4 tour, this is definitely the route people working and living within the Highveld of South Africa can enjoy. It is roughly 60 minutes from Johannesburg, and only 30 minutes from Hartbeespoort Dam in northern Pretoria, making it a great weekend escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.
