About Mateke 4x4 Trail

The Mateke Game Reserve is only a little over two hours’ drive from Pretoria in Gauteng and spans some 2 000 hectares. The 4x4 routes here comprise of a number of trails that can be enjoyed on their own or linked together to form the more challenging Mateke 4x4 Trail.

This is a 23 kilometre trail that takes between four and five hours to complete. It is a self-drive route, but parts of it require a navigator, as they can be significantly more challenging than they may appear to the eye. There are some really steep inclines and declines, as well as rocky areas in-between that necessitate a low range and a high ground clearance.

Thanks to temperate weather conditions, the Mateke 4x4 Trail is suitable for driving throughout the year.

Mateke is popular for its gorgeous views and pretty landscapes. The Mamba River provides gorgeous spots in which to cool down during the course of your excursion while keeping an eye out for the many exciting bird species that have made this their home. There are also several hiking, walking and cycling trails here, which add to the Mateke experience. Areas that can be undertaken in soft-road vehicles are tamer, but still provide a stunning, memorable adventure for the whole family.
