Spring has finally graced us with its presence, flowers in bloom and Landys rearing to start their next adventure. There’s no better time to shake off the winter cobwebs than to attend LROC’s driver training and get to know your vehicle that bit better. The spring trial provides a great opportunity to once again see just what these fantastic machines are capable of, and of course their drivers. The eco-trail provides the more relaxed option of putting the landy through its paces while offering some great views at the same time.
Camping is available with plentiful shade and neatly kept facilities featuring all the necessary amenities including hot water provided by rustic donkey geysers. All this at just a hop, skip and a jump from central Gauteng.
