4×4 Offroad Adventure Club – Ten Year Celebrations

What a function! If you missed it, sorry for you. It was awesome. Thanks for all of the 80+ families that took the time to come out and celebrate with us on the evening. We were hosted by Hans Steinkopf (Dealer Principle) and his crew from the newly created Halfway Toyota Honeydew organization. They spoilt us with a stunning venue, great warm soup and 2 curries as well as the honour to experience the unveiling of the new FJ Land Cruiser. What a winner! Thanks for the great memento 10 year caps donated to all attendees too. Thanks guys! What a stunning ‘partner’ to have in the club.

The members arrived in droves, and with our specially invited guests and potential members plus VIP Suppliers, we topped 220 people at the event. We had great raffle draw prizes to the value of just over R147 000, and the Keenan family walked away with the top prize, sponsored by URI ADVENTURES. Were they stoked, especially as daughter Natasha spent her 16th birthday away from boarding school and with us on the evening. Dad was away on business, so Mom’s luck was in! Read more

Maliba Lodge 4×4 Trails with Roads to Roam Adventure Holidays

Through one of the off-road forums, I heard that Maliba Lodge wanted to investigate the 4×4 trails in their area and offered my assistance. All was set up and pretty soon I headed for Ts’ehlanyane National Park to boldly go where no vehicle has gone before. At the time I did not know how true those words would be!

The original plan was to explore the tracks in two vehicles, but due to an unfortunate mishap, the second vehicle had to be withdrawn. This meant taking extra care not to get into trouble on these trails, as there was no vehicle to assist should there be a recovery situation.  It has been an extra-ordinary wet season and rained almost every night during my stay at Maliba. It made for some interesting off-road driving the next few days, but the driving conditions were probably at its worse and should only improve in dryer conditions. Read more
