About Leeuwenboschfontein 4x4 Trail

The Western Cape Province of South Africa is home to a plethora of natural attractions and intriguing terrains. The Karoo is one of these, and showcases a different array of fauna and flora that only add to any experience of this destination. It is no wonder, then, that the Leeuwenboschfontein 4x4 Trail, which is nestled within these landscapes, is recommended for those with a penchant for the pristine countryside of South Africa.

This trail consists of one main circular route with some optional loops and a short obstacle course. Thanks to the local topography, drivers can expect rocky terrain with some gloriously adrenalin-inducing descents, as well as cross-axles and side-slope climbs. The Leeuwenboschfontein 4x4 Trail is 20 kilometres long and has achieved an official grading of between three and five. It takes approximately four to six hours to complete, thanks to the challenges of the harsh, craggy mountains.

Still, no formal guide is necessary, and the trail is open all year round. Drivers should note, though, that winters can become very cold, with the possibility of snow, while Karoo summers are sweltering and dry. When wet or snowing, the grade of the trail increases in places to a five. In the cases of there being very steep hills, there are eco-friendly traction mats to assist drivers and prevent slipping.

The lookout point promises breath-taking views from an excellent vantage point; an idyllic backdrop for your 4x4 adventure. The countryside is made up of hardy renosterbos and succulents, and is the habitat of choice for many different mammals, insects, birds and reptiles.

Thanks to the stunning setting, the Leeuwenboschfontein 4x4 Trail is recommended for those who love the outdoors. These ones may also enjoy going bird watching, hiking, mountain biking, or fishing in the area. At night, the black sky is illuminated by millions of stars, which are all the more bright due to the total lack of city lights. Star gazing offers an escape from the real world within exquisite surrounds.
