Latest Four Wheel Drive Club News...

Sat 31 May - Sun 01 Jun - Three Provinces 4x4 Adventure Trail
This is surely one of the best weekend 4x4 trails around and one of the club's favourite destinations. Somehow we seem to always get lots of rain there, so we have decided to go in the winter with the challenge of cold nights, but with camp fires and hot water bottles this will just make for a great weekend. This venue has been “highly recommended” by Drive Out Magazine, and is featured as a “Top Ten Trail”. The trail is on the farm Waterval just outside Volksrust (two-and-a-half hour drive from Johannesburg) where the three provinces, KZN, Mpumalanga and the Free State, meet. See all the trips and outings here.

About the Four Wheel Drive Club of Southern Africa

The club is a family-orientated, recreational club for 4x4 owners that stands for responsible off-road driving. It was established in March 1972, when a dozen 4x4 enthusiasts gathered to form ‘The Four Wheel Drive Club of South Africa’ which became ‘The Four Wheel Drive Club of Southern Africa’ when the Botswana and Swaziland sections were incorporated. Currently the club consists of ten branches with about 1600 members.

For newcomers, the club gives you a chance to evaluate vehicles by communicating with other members before buying. Most people buy before joining, but if one joins first, one has an opportunity of making a better choice. Watching  4x4s in action at our monthly Sunday outings and talking to owners will give you useful information. The club is also involved in the following:

The club owns a property called Base 4 which is situated near Johannesburg off the R511 between Doornrantjes and Hennops - to see a map click here.
