We know it’s possible: people have done it before. Adventurers pack up their 4×4’s, herd their children into the backseat, and set off… fully intending for their tyres to never touch tar the entire way from capital to capital.

Are you one of these adventurers? Do you know of a route from Joburg to Cape Town (or vice versa!) where gravel is the preferred medium? Then you could win a year’s worth of insurance for your 4×4!

  • Plot your route

    Using the form below, let us know how you would get from JHB to CPT using as much gravel road as possible.

  • Make it Scenic

    We’ll be awarding a prize to the most scenic route, so many sure to include some pitstops!

  • Include your campsites

    Rome wasn’t built a day: you’ll need to plan your stayovers for each night of the trip. Plot your kid-friendly campsites along the way.

  • Make it Affordable

    Plan for an affordable, budget-savvy trip that includes packed lunches, affordable campsites, and a fuel-efficient route.
