4×4 Routes through Southern Africa

20 great routes and detailed maps with GPS points compiled by  Phillip Sackville Scott

4×4 Routes through Southern Africa is a selection of top off-road guides and operators have contributed chapters about routes that they regularly travel with groups of off-road tourists. They range from club guides to part time
commercial guides and full-blown off-road tour operators. What they all have in common is a love of the outdoors, an appreciation of nature and a willingness to promote the off-road
lifestyle and share it with the public. These professionals know their routes like the backs of their hands and are able to impart information on the places of interest along the way, while ensuring
your safety and enjoyment of the great outdoors. (See page 222 for more information on them and their companies or clubs.)

We have selected 20 tours in Southern Africa, eight of which are within South African borders and the rest to neighbouring states, with the Serengeti migration tour being an extended
expedition up to Tanzania. This is by no means a comprehensive coverage of Southern Africa’s off-road destinations, nor do we wish to imply that they are the most popular. Suffice it to say that they
are all routes that we, the guides, love and enjoy and they are a good sample of what you can expect the next time you venture
off the tar.

Jurgens Schoeman of Live The Journey Tours shares his
immense knowledge of the Angola, Khaudum/Caprivi and Namib
Desert routes, while André van Vuuren of Explore Africa Adventures
shares his Serengeti Migration and Liuwa Plains experience.

Simon Steadman of Mafunyane Adventures describes the Kgalagadi and
Central Kalahari Game Reserve trips, and Johann du Toit of African
Expeditions takes us on a tour of Lesotho. Andrew Brown of the
Offroad Adventure Club writes about longer trips to Botswana
and Zimbabwe.

Johan Snyman, who is an expert on the Kaokoland
area of Namibia, has submitted a chapter, as has Hugo Potgieter
of Mozambique 4X4 Safaris on his favoured area of Southern
Mozambique.

Of the trips within the borders of South Africa, Dave van Graan
of Masazane Expeditions writes on the Soutpansberg, Greg van der
Reis of the 4X4 Offroad Adventure Club covers the Richtersveld,
and Philip Sackville-Scott of Sackville Safaris presents adventures to
the Tankwa Karoo and Cederberg, the West Coast, Namaqualand
and the Transkei Wild Coast, and also follows the Molopo River
and the Old Ox-wagon Route.

Some routes are only operated by concession holders, while other areas pose too many dangers for you to attempt venturing there on your own. The benefits of being led by a trained and
experienced off-road guide are many – not only from a safety point of view, but particularly in that you will be taken to, and shown, sights that you could easily have driven straight past, not knowing
that they were even there. As most of these destinations are hundreds if not thousands of kilometres from home, who knows when you will get the opportunity to return?

This book is aimed at all off-road enthusiasts, irrespective of your experience and the type of vehicle you own, or wish to own some day, as long as it is a 4X4. We hope that you enjoy reading it
and that it leads to your contacting one of the 4X4 guides to book your family on an off-road adventure of a lifetime!
