The Klipspringer 4x4 Trail
This trail accommodates both the novice and the experienced 4x4 enthusiast. Ratings from 0-5 make for an adventurous 4x4 experience. The 4x4 trail also overlaps with our 21km hiking trail and can make for a combination of both. Enjoy a relaxing drive up to Platkopvlakte where after you’ll need to concentrate while you start climbing the Tsaris Mountains up to the Tsaris viewpoint. From the turn-off to Komkophoogte up to Bakleiklip and the descent to Dopsteekhoogte you will need extensive 4x4 experience and an experienced guide. From Dopsteekhoogte, you just need basic 4x4 experiences to complete the trail.
