The Wildebeest's Review of Drive Out 4x4 Trail Guide - 2011

The Wildebeest reviewing a book

If ever you needed convincing about upgrading your current vehicle to a 4x4 then this magazine could do it! It features descriptions of 101 4x4 trails across South Africa and Namibia. There is something quite exciting about 4x4 trails and to me the attraction is that they take you away from the crowds. Unless the route is a popular one near a city you will not being doing too much waiting around.

Each route in the magazine, or perhaps magbook, occupies a full page. There are a couple of photographs and a general write-up of the route and some of the more challenging obstacles that you will encounter. The “What you need to know” section gives you some information on accommodation, other activities available, nearest town, best time to go, route distance and a guide as to how long it will take you. Contact details are also provided. The footer of each page gives various symbols to highlight key bits of information including, and most importantly, the difficulty of the trail.

I think that this is a great publication and one that any serious 4x4 owner should buy. My only complaint is that there are so many routes located in the Western Cape against, for example, only 5 in KwaZulu-Natal.
