You won’t be disappointed! With 5 different 4x4 trails to choose from, there is absolutely no shortage of 4x4 obstacles, even for the most experienced 4x4’er!
The 4x4 trails offer varying degrees of difficulty. You can expect rocks, mud, stream crossings, side slopes and steep mountain tracks on all of the 4x4 routes. Being all natural, the routes constantly change with the weather, and are completely different from one season to the next.
A map for all 4x4 routes are provided on arrival. It provides a clear top-down view of the routes and contains GPS coordinates and descriptions of interesting sights along the route.
3 Provinces 4x4 Trail - This is the longest and most spectacular route on the farm, taking you up to where the boundaries of Mpumalanga, Kwa-Zulu Natal and the Freestate meet. The meeting point is on top of a 100m high cliff, called Langkrans, at 2 253m above sea level. Apart from the spectacular views over the countryside, the cliff is also home to a breeding pair of Black Eagles.
The route is 34km in length and will take 4 – 6 hours to complete. The difficulty of the route has been rated by Drive-Out Magazine as a 3-4 out of 5, however some obstacles have a 5 rating.
One such section is ‘Helshoogte’, a 300m long steep incline with loose boulders and a stream running down the track. Only experienced drivers with a very capable 4x4 vehicle should attempt this obstacle!
Tierkloof 4x4 trail - short but challenging, with a few interesting obstacles. Navigate over huge boulders inside thick bush, before taking a short steep rocky climb to the top of the mountain. After a short scenic drive you’ll have to drive down one of the steepest downhill sections on the farm. The route is 8km in length but takes about 2 – 3 hours to complete.
Bobbejaankrans 4x4 Trail - another short 4x4 trail. Starting just outside the campsite, it winds its way through thick bush and over rocky terrain, with a few hair-raisingly steep up- and downhills. This route is only 5km in length and takes just 1 - 2 hours to complete.
Tierkloof Extreme 4x4 Trail – Recently Opened - An amazing new route with spectacular views, very steep ups, downs and a few scary slide slopes. It is 5kms in length but takes 2 - 3 hours to complete.
Walletjiestraat 4x4 Trail – Recently Opened - Take a steep drive down into a ravine and drive upstream, navigating sharps turns, a muddy axle-twister and a small log bridge before climbing out on the other side. Chances are that you will get stuck, so remember to bring recovery gear and a friend, or a winch, or both. It is only about 1km in length, and if you are lucky, it should take only 30minutes to complete. If you get stuck though, it could take a while...
