4x4 Adventure Tours

 

Highlights

Cape Town is blessed with many visitors each year and there is a good reason why!  We are pleased to offer our visitors something different, unique, full of excitement and guaranteed to get your adrenaline flowing…….
 
If you are looking for adventure and would like to get away from the hustle and bustle of a very active city, leave the shopping malls and restaurants behind and experience a taste of the true African spirit, enjoy the beauty of nature, take a peek out of "God's Window" with the knowledge and comfort of knowing you will be returning to Cape Town on the same day.
 
Many people visit the city not realising that there is a wealth of beauty waiting to be seen within a few hours drive. However, you have to know that these places exist, you need the right knowledge to take you there and you need the right vehicles to help explore the surrounding beauty.
 
We offer exclusive 4x4 day trips that are taken in reliable, luxurious and purpose built extreme 4x4's, Hummer H3, Range Rovers and Defenders that have been modified to different degrees to suit both the timid and fainthearted and those who have a real sense of adventure.   A guided driving experience guaranteed to leave you with a smile from ear to ear and a memory to treasure.


 

The Vehicles

Hummer H3
 
Has been upgraded to offer extreme 4x4 abilities, increased ride height and increased tire size to give extra traction when required with the comfort associated to the Hummer name. The H3 is a derivative of the US army's Humvee used in the gulf desert war.  It has the characteristics of small windows and a tight compact cabin from the outside, but to the contrary, offers good visibility to passengers in a comfortable luxuriant air conditioned cabin. The perfect machine to take you to places that many standard 4x4's cannot get to.
 
 
Land Rover Defender TD5
 
Unmodified as the Defender is well renowned for its versatility off road.  Extra ground clearance gives the Defender the ability to go places many cannot.  Its cabin is less luxuriant but has fantastic all round vision.  The Defender has been in Africa for many years and although it offers less creature comforts, it is ideal for those who want to get a real taste of the African spirit.
 
 
 
Range Rover HSE
 
Has been upgraded to offer extreme 4x4 abilities, increased ride height and increased tire size to give extra traction when required.  The name Range Rover has been in Africa for many years and needs no introduction.  The Range Rover HSE offers a comfortable cabin and large windows for very good all round visibility.  The perfect machine to take you to places that many standard 4x4's cannot get to.
 

 

4x4 Dune Eco Driving Experience

Spend the day zipping along the dunes in a 4x4. Within a 30 minute drive from the centre of Cape Town, your adrenaline will soon start to flow as you see the dunes you are about explore.

The dunes are a natural phenomenon and can change their formation overnight depending on wind direction; your driver has the experience and knowledge to navigate all types of dunes.  We always send 4x4's in pairs as you have to be prepared for the un- expected.  Even the most experienced driver can get stuck and caught out, a dune may suddenly start to collapse and you'll need to hold on tight while the driver takes control of the situation and navigates you safely to the bottom.  
 
There will be regular stops giving ample time to get out the cameras and capture those special moments.  A sand board is available for anyone wishing to ride the dunes under their own steam.
 
A mid day traditional South African braai (BBQ) will be served at lunch time along with refreshments.
 
We take care of everything from your point of pick- up to the safe return to your hotel later that day.

4x4 Rocky Eco Driving Experience

Spend the day exploring the surrounding beauty of Cape Town.  The trail is within a 50 minute drive from the centre of Cape Town.
 
Your Guide will take care of the necessary preparations to your 4x4's suspension and tire pressure.   The rocky terrain you are shortly to commence climbing will be pointed out and as you get closer and observe some of the climbs I am sure you'll feel your adrenaline start to flow.  We travel to a height of roughly 800 meters.
 
This trail is not for the fainthearted.  There are some extremely steep climbs and descents, however the trip can be calmed down to suit the entire family.  There is plenty of wildlife on the farm and if we are lucky you may catch sight of the Zebra, Eland or Kudu that roam the farm.  
 
There will be regular stops giving ample time to get out the cameras and capture those special moments, fantastic scenic views, plenty of wildlife, birds and fynbos.
 
A mid day traditional South African braai (BBQ) will be served at lunch time along with refreshments.  Whilst your meal is being prepared you can relax by a small lake and enjoy the stunning views as far as the eye can see.
 
We take care of everything from your point of pick-  up to the safe return to your hotel later that day.

4x4 Mountainous Eco Driving Experience

Spend the day exploring the highest mountain in the Western Cape!
 
This is not Table Mountain at a mere 1086mtrs.  Matroosberg towers them all at a height of 2249mtrs.  The trail is a 2hr drive from the centre of Cape Town, but you will see the mountain range you are going to explore well before you reach your destination
 
On arrival your Guide takes care of the vehicle preparations and obtains the necessary daily permits.  The trail carries a moderate 4x4 rating and takes about 6hrs to complete. In winter time, when there is snow on the mountain, it takes a serious 4x4 to be able to get to the top.
 
There will be regular stops giving ample time to get out the cameras and capture those special moments.  We make a point of stopping at the ½ way mark as there is a large plateau where we can park and guests can then stretch their legs.  For the brave, you can crawl to the edge of a 1000mtr shear drop. This is not for the fainthearted or anyone that suffers from vertigo.  EXTREME CAUTION has to be taken if you approach the edge!
It is HIGHLY recommended you CRAWL. Parents are advised to keep a close eye on their children; it is particularly dangerous in strong winds and LIVES HAVE BEEN LOST AT THIS POINT.
 
We will endeavour to serve brunch at the half- way plateau as well as a mid afternoon traditional South African braai (BBQ) sitting on the top of the mountain observing "God's creation from his own window", weather conditions permitting.
 
We take care of everything from your point of pick- up to the safe return to your hotel later that evening.
