Getting off the Beaten Track....


SA Adventure’s introductory 4x4 Training Course is a great way to get started in the world of off-roading! It is suitable for all types of 4x4 vehicles including "soft-roaders"!


The course is designed with the beginner in mind and we work on the basis that you know nothing or little about off-roading and your vehicle and its available features! We slowly build your confidence levels throughout this fun filled day at our purpose built off-road training course north of Johannesburg. Our 4x4 Training course is a great way for participants to learn the theoretical and practical aspects of off-road driving and enhance any previously learned knowledge.


Our dedicated 4x4 instructors will teach you all about those buttons, dials and levers you have been curious about, and how to get the most out of your 4x4 vehicle, safely and responsibly! Our aim is to provide you with the highest quality 4×4 training in all off-road driving situations, whilst having fun at the same time!


We believe that once drivers become fully competent in handling their vehicles, and build up their confidence, you can fully enjoy the true off-road 4x4 lifestyle with minimum impact on the environment and your vehicle, allowing you and your family the chance to experience the fun, family-friendly world of 4x4 off-roading in a safe and responsible manor.



Location, Location, Location


Our 4x4 training course is located near Hartebeespoort Dam at the Hennops Off-Road Trail, just far enough out of town to feel like you are in the Bush! Surrounded by the pristine African bush on a wildlife 4x4 trail that boasts Zebra, Blue Wildebeest, Kudu, Impala, black backed Jackal and a host of other indigenous species! 

We will venture into the heart of the 4x4 trail to our boma styled classroom for coffee and tea.  This is where we conduct the theroy part of your 4x4 training.  We will then move to the specially designed 4×4 training course that simulates terrain typically found in Southern Africa to teach you to cope with off road situations that you will encounter in your 4x4 adventures into the great Southern African outdoors!
