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 06- 07th October 2018. Last year the event attracted close to 100 drivers with friends and family.
The event gives 4×4 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.
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.
Area Manager for Wilderness, Sandra Taljaard says ‘we are delighted to open the route which is on existing footprint to allow participants to come as close as possible to nature. The drive is scenic and picture-perfect which is what the Garden Route is famous for.’
The event is scheduled for the 6-7 October 2018. Entries are limited and those interested should book early to avoid disappointment.
