The Dunes 4×4 Trail, Lamberts Bay, The West Coast

Western Cape 1 The DunesThe name of this trail is a dead giveaway. More than 250 hectares of rolling, snow-white dunes lie just outside Lamberts Bay. Under the trusty guidance of Oom Joos Engelbrecht, you can negotiate this sandy playground on a number of routes.

While getting airborne on a dune crest may sound like fun, it can cause some serious damage to your vehicle. A combination of power, momentum and deflated tyres is what is required to conquer the sand like a pro.

However, there are also escape routes throughout if you feel you should need them.

The Dunes 4x4 TrailThe way there: The trail is 10 km before Lamberts Bay on the R364 from Clanwilliam.

Accommodation: There are a couple of options in nearby Lamberts Bay. Contact: Theunis and Susie Engelbrecht tel 027-432-1244. email, website.
