Hennops Offroad Trail

Zonkie Trail

This trail is designed to enable any four wheel driver to experience the true pleasure of four wheel driving in conditions that will satisfy anyone from the first timer to the experienced driver.

For the experienced driver the trail lends itself to achieve ultimate performance with any 4WD vehicle over a wide variety of obstacles including mud-holes, steep rocky climbs, descents and dongas. We do need to leave something for the imagination so let’s not elaborate more on the obstacles !

For the not so experienced, tricky obstacles can be bypassed by existing tracks and service roads.

Kudu, Zebra, Blou Wildebeest and Blesbok together with a wide variety of bird life can be viewed along the way.

The idea is to learn more about the capabilities of your vehicle as well as to become more confident with your vehicle’s fullest potential.

Starting Off

The trail has a 2 – 4 technical grading.

The layout of the trail is in such a way that you will be able to take a detour should you wish to avoid an obstacle. Please ensure that your vehicles hubs are locked if they are not automatically locked.

2×4 High riders with diff-lock will be able to do approximately 80% of the trail.
