Slagboom 4×4 Trail, Zuurberg, Addo Area, Eastern Cape

Eastern Cape SlagboomThe route, named after the battle of Slagboom, has five sections that wind their way along the Zuurberg.

To conquer all of these would be a serious achievement, as two of the sections are graded five.

Much of the trail requires low-range to tackle the steep inclines and tight angles.

That said, it attracts beginners and experts alike and there’s plenty of time to take in the sights and sounds of the surrounding natural beauty.

The way there: Follow the signs on the R335 from Port Elizabeth.

Slagboom 4x4 Trail, Addo Area, Port ElizabethAccommodation: Slagboom Outdoors offers three self-catering farmhouses from R300 a unit a night and two campsites from R50 a person a night, one of them on the banks of the Slagboom River.
