Places To Go In Your 4×4 Trailers
4 Great Places in SA to Take Your 4×4 Trailers
We all have different ideas of what the perfect adventure is. For some, it’s the thrill of the unknown, venturing where few have gone before… For others, it’s finding a tranquil spot and relaxing while simply taking in the serene beauty of nature. Whatever your perfect getaway is, one thing we can all agree on is how much better modern 4×4 trailers have made these outdoor escapes. With sturdy construction, compact storage, and every basic amenity you can think of, 4×4 trailers have allowed us to traverse the countryside with little effort and a lot of comfort.
Luckily, there’s no shortage of absolutely breathtaking destinations scattered across our amazing country. For most of us, however, it’s been a while since we’ve been able to load up our 4×4 trailers and enjoy a carefree trek into the bush. To get you inspired, here are four excellent destinations you should visit:
- Nossob Eco 4×4 Trail, Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park
Want a truly rustic experience where it’s just your crew and what you packed? Embark on this four-day journey through the red sand dunes between Twee Rivieren and Nossob in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. At an impressive 214 kilometres, this route is rated grade 3, and requires a qualified guide to accompany visitors.
- Mafunyane 4×4 Eco-Trail, Kruger National Park
This four-day, 270-km trail lets you explore the rarely seen portions of the north-western section of Kruger National Park, between the Olifants and Luvuvhu Rivers, and is only open for visitors between March and November. Pack everything you need, including tents, water, food, and firewood.
- Nuweveld Eco-Trail, Karoo National Park
This grade 1 off-road trail will see you conquer the sandy riverbeds and steep, rocky hills that scatter the almost 90 000-hectare Karoo National Park. It’s the ideal destination for the casual off-roader. You have the option to overnight at the Embizweni Cottage and enjoy the spectacular views of the Nuweveld Mountains. Keep an eye out for herds of eland, gemsbok, and individual black rhino.
- Bedrogfontein, Addo Elephant National Park
The Addo Elephant National Park in the Eastern Cape is one of South Africa’s biggest conservation success stories, and often referred to as the most diverse game park on Earth. Discover the treasures and breathtaking views it has to offer by embarking on a life-changing journey between the lush Kabouga and arid Darlington sections of the park. This is a grade 2 to 3 trail.
