Who we are

More about All Terrain 4×4 and it’s origins.

ALL TERRAIN 4X4 has been in operation in the 4×4 industry for the past 15 years. We strongly uphold and support eco-friendly practices and that is why we train the way we do – personalized, practical and with a strong emphasis on eco-friendly driving techniques. We strongly believe in sharing our knowledge to preserve the earth as we traverse over it. To date we have trained over 4,000 people, and were involved in many corporate and private events; all centred around 4×4 driving experiences.

Our Skills

More about our skillsets and experience.

Through collaboration with an accredited training company, Baobab ~ Excellence in Training, we also do offer Transport SETA (TETA) accredited 4×4 training courses.

We are extremely proud on our own facility and home based on Zevenwacht Wine Estate on the outskirts of Cape Town. This facility offers world class 4×4 tracks and training venues, and Zevenwacht’ s hospitality and conferencing services are next level. Therefore, it is no surprise that some of SA’s major motor manufacturers prefers our facility for all their official product launches, training and customers days. Natural to say that 4×4 enthusiasts and clubs enjoy their time out on the trails fully.

Our involvement in the 4×4 industry however reaches far beyond training only. A range of 4×4 vehicles allows us to render wide-ranging services to, amongst others, the film industry. We can transport both personnel and equipment to remote locations, normally only accessible by 4×4. Highly experienced drivers ensure that safety, comfort and service receive the highest priority.

Eco-tourism related activities are also offered by using open-topped Jeeps or our vintage 4×4 trucks, affectionately named “Kokkerot” and “Toktokkie”.  Off-road adventures on Zevenwacht and Atlantis Dunes, or peninsula transfers are some of the options available.
