South Africa provides some of the best off-road driving experiences in the world. While some are along the lesser traveled and poorly maintained roads in outlying areas throughout the country, there are a number of areas where one can go completely off road and blaze a trail of your own.

Also known as four-wheel driving (because the vehicle provides power to all four wheels simultaneously) this is definitely a growing niche market in South Africa where many families own a 4x4 and take their holidays camping in the wild outdoors.

Four-wheel drive vehicles provide good handling on just about all terrains and there are many areas waiting to be selected to test just about every driving level.

Various conditions can be catered for from sand, rock and mud providing ample opportunity to test ones skill and driving prowess.

A number of inner city, privately owned tracks, provide safe environments to test ones skill before heading into the less forgiving outdoors and unless you are an avid 4x4 enthusiast it is advisable to undertake some tutoring at one of these facilities.
A word on 4x4 Trails & Tours:
  Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves. ~Albert Einstein

�Have you ever noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac?� George Carlan

Drive slow and enjoy the scenery -- drive fast and join the scenery....Doug Horton

Safety:

Check your vehicles ground clearance and traction to ensure it is suitable for the terrain you are entering. As all enthusiasts can testify there are some vehicles better suited for certain conditions than others.

Always have spare tyres, a tool box, winch and air compressor with you in order to adjust your vehicle for the conditions and in case of emergency.

Don�t forget to pack your first aid kit. By definition you will be entering remote areas where medical assistance is not easily accessible, ensure you are adequately supplied with routine medical aid kit material plus a snake kit, sunscreen and ample water supplies.


Interesting Facts:

  • Jeep was originally developed by American Bantam but mass produced by Willys and Ford and it went on to become the most popular all-wheel drive make in World War 2.

  • The market for �go-anywhere� vehicles initially developed due to military demand but were quickly adopted into the outdoor leisure market.
  • The name Four Wheel Drive was first used in 1948 and has gone on to become a complete sector of the market with more luxury style vehicles coming onto the market in more recent times.
