Drakensberg 4x4 trails

There are 4x4 trails in the Drakensberg that are amongst the best in the country

There are 4x4 trails in the Drakensberg that are amongst the best in the country, taking you to places you never dreamed of being able to visit. Natural obstacles - steep slopes, rock steps, sand river crossings, mud shale slopes - will take your driving skills to the limit.

And there are 4x4 offroad training courses for the uninitiated and specialist obstacle trails for the truly dedicated. Or if you prefer the less rugged, make it an easy outing, using a map of the area and GPS co-ordinates to explore all that the region has to offer.

Provided you take reasonable precautions 4x4 trails are an immensely rewarding experience.

Drakensberg 4x4 Trails

  • Mikes Pass - This 4x4 trail is located in the Cathedral Peak Section of the Central Drakensberg. This 32km trail is one of the most scenically beautiful anywhere. It includes some steep climbs and a hair-raising 7km downhill on the pass.
  • Sani Pass - This is a fairly challenging 4x4 route with access from Himeville in the southern Drakensberg. The pass twists and climbs upwards, beneath towering cliffs and buttresses, reaching the top of the Drakensberg escarpment at 2 873m. You need a passport to cross the border post into Lesotho at the top.
  • Thule Beacon Trail - From St Bernards Peak in East Griqualand. This trail is renowned as a tough 4x4 trail that takes you high into the southern Drakensberg mountains. The experts say that this trail is much tougher than Sani Pass.
