SA Outdoor Show
It’s go-go-go for The South African 4x4 & Outdoor Show, on 26 and 27 August! The show will again be based at the Zwartkops Raceway, west of Pretoria, and there’s a whole lot of good stuff on the menu over the two days.
A sneak preview
If you’ve read the report on the Toyota Land Cruiser 6×6 on the cover of this magazine, you’d know that it promises to be the belle of the ball at The South African 4×4 & Outdoor Show at Zwartkops Raceway, on 26/27 August.
But there will be much more to experience than just the Cruiser 6×6. In the outdoor and adventure accessories segment you’ll find, among other things, fishing rods, camping and hiking gear. There will be a plethora of food stalls, catering for a variety of tastes.
New this year is a craft beer festival, with a select group of craft beer breweries in attendance. From an entertainment point of view, the show will be rocking, too. There will be rock crawler competition, a 4×4 driving experience, an air rifle range, paintball games, monster truck shows, competitions, entertainment for the kids, live music shows, a camel race, and much more.
A number of 4×4 accessory companies will be in attendance, showing off some of their coolest handiwork and projects. Also on the menu are a full range of boats and jet skis, caravans and trailers, bikes and quads, as well as all the latest and greatest 4×4s and SUVs.
A unique attraction at the show is the fact that visitors with a valid driving licence can take those latest and greatest 4×4s and SUVs for a spin around Zwartkops’ karting track, with an instructor in the passenger seat. So instead of just kicking tyres, you can actually drive the vehicle you are interested in.
Entrance is R150 for adults and R50 for children. Show times are 8am to 5pm on the Saturday, and 8am to 3pm on the Sunday. The GPS waypoints for Zwartkops Raceway are: S25 811161/ E28 11483.
