Grootwater 4×4 Trail, Lephalale, Limpopo Province

The best part of the Grootwater experience is the challenging rock driving – and the rocks and stones along the trails are mostly smooth, so they are not likely to damage your vehicle or tyres.

That said, vehicles require good ground clearance, so take care at all times and don’t get overconfident; the steep descents can get nasty.

Once you’ve tackled all the routes, it’s up to you to choose whether you’d like to go for a hike, test your quad, go canoeing or just relax next to the pool or in the bar.

The way there: Take the N1 north from Johannesburg and turn left towards Modimolle at the Kranskop Tollgate. On the Vaalwater road, turn right at the Lephalale sign. After 50km, at the Witkop sign, turn left onto the dirt road. The turn-off for Grootwater is 11 km further.
