About the event
The SA Adventure introductory 4x4 training course is an awesome way to get started in the world of off-roading! It is suitable for all makes of 4x4 vehicles including "soft-roaders".
Our 4x4 training course is designed with the novice in mind and we work on the basis that you know little or nothing about off-roading, your vehicle and its available features! We slowly build your confidence levels throughout this action-packed day at our purposely built off-road training course near Hartebeespoort Dam. Our 4x4 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 enthusiastic 4x4 instructors will teach you all about those buttons, dials and levers in your 4x4 that you have been curious about, and how to get the most out of your vehicle, safely and responsibly! Our goal is to provide you with the highest quality accredited 4×4 training in all off-road situations, whilst having fun at the same time!
We believe that once drivers become fully confident in handling their vehicles, they can start to explore and enjoy the off-road 4x4 lifestyle with minimum impact on the environment and their vehicle, allowing you and your family the chance to experience the fun, family-friendly world of off-roading in a safe and responsible manner...
Where do I do my 4x4 Training?
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 4x4 trail that boasts Zebra, Blue Wildebeest, Kudu, Impala, black-backed Jackal and a host of other indigenous species, including our famous 'Zonkies' Harry and Oscar, a premier destination for off-road training in Gauteng...
The 4x4 adventure takes us to the heart of the trail, where at our boma styled classroom we have morning coffee or tea. This is where we conduct the theory part of your 4x4 course. After the theory, we move to the specially designed off-road trail that simulates terrain you would typically find throughout Southern Africa. It's here we teach you to deal with off-road situations that you will encounter on your off-road adventures into the great South African outdoors!
So What Will I Learn?
Our 4x4 course starts off with a theory session that covers all the basic's about your vehicle and off-road driving. We don't spend hours and hours on this as we believe it's better to see things in a practical environment. Once you understand the theoretical side of things we move onto the off-road trail where you will actually drive your vehicle through various obstacles in a practical teaching environment. The instructor will always be there to guide you through and answer all your questions throughout the day.
