4×4 Adventure Excursions

The Overberg is one of the most scenic areas of the Western Cape, with a combination of mountains and ocean, nature reserves, conservancy areas, private game reserves and farmlands. The Hottentots Holland Mountains and Groenlandberg form the backdrop for these adventures. With altitudes ranging from 500m to 1590m, the terrain is rugged. Weather conditions in the mountains can be unpredictable. The reserve area has approximately 1300 species of mountain fynbos, including several rare and endemic plants. Birdlife is prolific with over 110 different species having been recorded including some magnificent species of raptors.


Self Drive Routes

South Africans just love getting out into nature and putting their 4×4’s to the test. There are a number of routes close to Grabouw. Convenient stayover at Kunguru Lodge in Elgin Valley allows access to the self drive routes within 15 minutes, 35 minutes and 1 hour, respectively. The routes are graded easy to moderate, traversing magnificent terrain bursting with natural fynbos. It is always wise for a minimum of two vehicles to travel the route together.
