The beautiful South African province of Mpumalanga has so much to offer in the way of natural splendour and bounty. This can be explored in a number of ways - on foot, in a vehicle, by air, or on bicycle. Those who get a rush out of 4x4 trailing will, no doubt, love their time in Mpumalanga when they get to enjoy it from the thrill of one of the local formal trails.
The Riverwild 4x4 Trail is a 12 kilometre route that takes between three and five hours to complete on your own (that is, without a guide). It has a grading of between two and four, making it suitable for a variety of expertise and experience levels. It comprises nine individual trails, which create a fun and exciting network for visitors to explore. This includes river crossings, mud, rock, sand and challenging dongas. Steep ascents and descents and some areas of rock crawling make for loads of fun. While this route is open all year round, drivers should check in after heavy rains as some of the areas may be inaccessible.
The nine individual trails take drivers through the scenic Weltevreden Valley, in the heart of the tall, dense woods of South Africa. They comprise natural obstacles that present fantastic challenges, while not being particularly dangerous. Where the trail becomes more technical, there are escape routes available.
Riverwild makes advanced and entry level 4x4 driving courses available to visitors, adding plenty of value to time spent here and ensuring that drivers feel prepared. These courses need to be booked in advance.
The prettiness of these surrounds is also enjoyed by hikers, cyclists, bird-watchers and those with a desire to get their adrenalin pumping as they abseil down the face of the mountains. The Riverwild 4x4 Trail is only 42 kilometres outside Mbombela, which is the capital city of Mpumalanga, and has all of the amenities and facilities of big towns.
