All Revved Up with Plenty of Places to Go

All Revved Up with Plenty of Places to Go

If you are a 4×4 enthusiast, then the following routes will definitely have you all revved up and absolutely have to be put on your to-do list. If you are not a 4×4 enthusiast, you should continue reading anyway because by the end of this, you just very well might be. The great news is not owning a 4×4 doesn’t leave you exempt from tackling these trails; there are plenty of 4×4 vehicle hire, Toyota hire and other SUV rental options out there for you to get trail-blazing all the same. 

1.     The Augrabies National Park 4×4 Trail

Travers through roughly 100km of raw African land as you enjoy the wildlife sightings and experience a few water crossings. As if that wasn’t grand enough, The Augrabies Waterfalls are there for your viewing and hearing pleasure. The Khoi people called this dazzling location “Aukoerebis” – place of Great Noise. The trail is easy enough for novice 4×4 drivers and stunning enough for experienced 4×4 drivers.

2.     Sani Pass or ‘The Gateway to Lesotho’

The pass is accessed through Kwa-Zulu Natal (also called the Kwa-Sani district) and is a beautiful, steep climb up the solitary road that exclusively crosses the summit of the High Drakensberg to gain access into Lesotho. The views are spectacular and epic mountains become even more hypnotic with blankets of blooming flowers in summer. For the very brave, experience frozen waterfalls and snow in the winter – remember to dress warmly!

3.     Namaqua Eco-trail, Northern Cape

Really feeling the need to escape? The Namaqua 4×4 Routes hold the title of being the longest ones in South Africa, spanning over an impressive 600km whereby each kilometre travelled further engulfs you in the beauty of the Northern Cape. Fields of gold is all we can really say.

Some of the best trails include having bragging rights for going on ‘the Road to Hell’ as well as Richtersveld and The Caracal Trail. This trail offers something for everyone, from the least experienced to most experienced 4×4 drivers.

All Revved Up to Get Going?

We don’t blame you! If you do not own a 4×4 and wish to hire one so that you can experience the wonders of the above trails, contact South Africa 4×4 or visit their website for more information.
