5 Best Travel Destinations for Off-Road Caravans
If you are a camping enthusiast and love to let off steam by following the road less taken, you probably enjoy 4×4 getaways just as much as we do. Fortunately, off-road caravans offer the opportunity to take the entire family on an unforgettable trip into the beautiful bundus of Africa.
If you are looking for inspiration for your next trip, take a gander at some of the destinations below. Whether using off-road caravans or 4×4 trailers, you can have the adventure of a lifetime without leaving any needed belongings behind.
- The Nuweveld Trail.
If you are a fan of the Karoo, the Nuweveld 4×4 Eco-Trail is right up your alley. Exploring the western part of the Karoo National Park, this trail features dry river crossings, rocky hillsides, and steep terrain. If your idea of fun is to be surrounded by vast African plains, herds of gemsbok, zebra, and rhinos, this is an eco-trail to try.
- The Mafunyane Trail
This 4×4 eco-trail explores a northern section of the Kruger National Park and covers a distance of about 270 km over four days. Inclines, mud, and rivers and streams can only be tackled by 4×4 vehicles with off-road caravans and trailers. Real wilderness doesn’t get any more real than this.
- The Marakele Trail
The malaria-free eco-trail in the Waterberg Biosphere Reserve features a guided tour over three days. For a challenging expedition where lots of wildlife and beautiful plant species can be spotted, the Marakele trail is perfect.
- The Wilderness Road
For a shorter 4×4 trail, the Wilderness Road trail takes travellers through the Augrabies Falls National Park in the Northern Cape. While the trail takes about six hours, there are various detours and stops one can take for further exploration. The Orange River Gorge and Augrabies Waterfall, in particular, are sights you will want to take in for yourself.
- The Namaqua 4×4 Eco-Trail
If you fancy the Northern Cape but want a longer route than the Wilderness Road, this trail might suit your fancy. As the longest 4×4 eco-trail in South Africa (about 600 km), it boasts areas like the world-renowned Richtersveld and the hard-to-navigate Road to Hell.
