• Welcome to Hennops Off-road Trail

About Us

The Hennops Off-road Trail was established in 1993 and one of the first Privately owned 4x4 trails in South Africa.

Hennops Off-road Trail is located just outside Hartbeespoort and 30 km from both Sandton and Pretoria. We offer a variety of obstacles from easy access to rugged, rocky terrain in a picturesque environment. The obstacles will keep everybody happy and busy - from the novice out on his first trip to the 4x4 fundi in search of some weekend fun. Come and enjoy the peace and serenity of a lovely farm situated on the banks of the Hennops River.

The Hennops Off-road Trail offers 2 trails which are the Zonkie Trail and the Kliprift 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. Zebra, Blou Wildebeest and Blesbok together with a wide variety of bird life and smaller animals can be viewed along the way. Also look out for the Zonkies ! 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.

Klipdrift Trail

For those that are seeking a new challenge at Hennops, the Klipdrift route is open to the public by prior arrangement only and for groups of 4 or more vehicles. This trail should take you 2-3 hours to complete. Any group attempting this route must be able to recover themselves so bring your recovery gear along. -The keys are available at the main gate,.
