Gecko Rock Eco Adventure 4×4 Trails, Touws River

Gecko Rock Eco Adventure 4x4 TrailDepending on your experience, you can choose the hand-built, grade-four trail or the more scenic grade-two drive, which is suitable for 4x2s. Ideally you should try both.

A qualified guide leads groups. If you want to do the tougher nine-kilometre route, you’ll have to demonstrate your abilities at the test terrain beforehand.

Vehicles must have good ground clearance, low-range and a diff lock is recommended.

The 12-kilometre one-hour trail is great for novice drivers and there’s a training course for 4×4 drivers.
