The SANParks Honorary Rangers, Wilderness Region, are calling 4X4 enthusiasts to the “Road Less Travelled Off-Road Experience” in the Garden Route National Park on the 6-7 October.

The event gives 4x4 enthusiasts and nature lovers the opportunity to travel along roads normally closed to the public. Participants get to experience indigenous forests, fynbos, sparkling streams and sweeping mountain views.

“We are delighted to open the route which is an existing footprint to allow participants to come as close as possible to nature,” said Area Manager for Wilderness, Sandra Taljaard.

“The drive is scenic and picture-perfect which is what the Garden Route is famous for.”

There are three routes available (graded 1-4), with each route offering a unique landscape setting and off the beaten track to showcase the magnificent natural features of the Garden Route National Park.

The routes will take participants along roads less travelled through Karatara Forest, the Goudveld Forest, the Voortrekker Route and from Windmeulnek to Platbos.

Funds raised from the event will be allocated to conservation initiatives in the Garden Route National Park, as identified by SANParks.

Last year the event attracted close to 100 drivers with friends and family. Entries are limited so be sure to book early to avoid disappointment.
