The 4x4 trail is one of the leading off-road experiences in South Africa. The trail is driven by participants in their own vehicles under guidance of our experienced marshals. The trail has different sections with a variety of challenging natural obstacles, each with its own character and each offering varying degrees of difficulty, including river crossings, mud sections, steep ascents and descents and plenty of rocky areas, all under expert guidance. For those who do not want to participate in the extreme sections, it is possible to take a detour. Safety, vehicle care and enjoyment are the cornerstones around which the 4x4 trail was developed. Cross country drives and trips in the scenic surrounding forests are available for off-road vehicles without low range.

4x4 Driver training is presented on request and includes level 1, level 2 and level 3 courses covering the topics of environment, vehicle information, offroad techniques, recovery and practical training, driving through a number of obstacles. Advanced courses include navigation, GPS, advanced recovery and other specialised skills to ensure a safe offroad experience.Riverwild and The River's Edge - both unique in their setting, offers guests a choice of accommodation and ambience to experience.
