Protea Eco Adventures started business in 1997 with the first of its 4×4 trails ‘Protea Safari Trail’. The trail is one of the best in South Africa, as voted by the African public and popular car magazine ‘Drive-Out’. The company has expanded since this time into an adventure playground for individuals and companies alike and is also the destination for many tourists who are owners of 4×4 or perhaps looking for that little bit of adventure to be added into their holidays in South Africa.
Training facilities offered by Protea Eco Adventures are excellent and accredited by various 4×4 dealerhips: Sandown Motors (Jeep and Misubishi Motors) , Monument Toyota West Rand to name but a few. The course gives you a great understanding of your vehicle as well as its capabilities – if you have a 4×4 and have only kept it on tar roads, be sure to book yourself onto the course – you’ll find it exhilarating. As well as the 4×4 trail, the company also run a variety of events in the Krugersdorp Game Reserve, one of the most scenic reserves in Gauteng boasting most of the big 5 and other animal species.
Activities on the reserve include 4x4ing, team building, game drives as well as a host of other activities for small groups and companies alike.
Then, there are the Botswana tours for which they have a good reputation. They offer guided tours to this region, where they try to get you up close and personal with wild game, whilst at the same time respecting the wildlife and fauna around. These are just a few of the activities that are on offer.
