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.
