The Thangami Game Reserve is idyllically set within the exquisite Umfolozi Valley, in the northern part of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. This reserve is home to four 4 x 4 trails, each of which offers visitors something unique, picturesque and very special. These trails are all interlinked, as they criss-cross around the game reserve.
The 4 x 4 trails of Thangami Game Reserve have varied terrains. These include river crossings, unstable rock, logs, steep incline and declines, loose sand, and challenging mud. This makes for challenging, fun rides that offer visitors a wide spectrum of experiences. The various routes will keep drivers occupied for a full weekend, and then some.
The shortest trail is eight kilometres long and takes about two hours to complete. It is the easiest for those who want to feel the exhilaration of 4 x 4 adventures with less experience. The longest of the four trails is 20 kilometres long and takes about four hours to complete. It includes river crossings, mud and steep slopes.
On these trails, drivers are advised to keep their eyes open to appreciate the untouched splendour of the plant and animal life that is found so abundantly in the Thangami Game Reserve. This reserve is less than 75 kilometres from Vryheid, a small town significant for its mining and agriculture industries.
The Thangami 4 x 4 trails are self-drive trails, meaning that an experienced guide is not necessary. They are open and suitable all year round, and can be paired with beautiful game drives and the excellent facilities in the reserve.
