4x4 ROUTES

There are almost 28km's twin-track farm roads. Most of these roads are accessible to 2x4 vehicles with enough ground clearance and can be negotiated comfortably while the scenery is being admired.

 

Other tracks are only accessible to 4x4 vehicles but they are the most rewarding because it leads to beautiful scenes over the Vanderkloof dam and the surrounding area and is a good challenge for the 4x4 enthusiast.
