Louvain Guestfarm’s 4x4 routes are legendary. From the challenging Forest
drive to the panoramic views across the valleys to the coastline on the
Oxwagon trail, there certainly is something here for everyone who loves
nature and good times.
The Forest Drive is a natural obstacle course in and around a
riverbed in a blackwood forest. The circular track can only be
driven in an anti-clockwise direction due to the high grade of
difficulty of some of the ascents/descents. Obstacles with names
like “the Gorge” and “the Donga” make this route suitable only for
experienced drivers in proper low range 4x4’s with maximum ground
The Forest drive is a popular venue for 4x4 competitions and
training, or anybody who likes to test his 4x4 and own driving
Cost per vehicle: R150
Old Voortrekker pass Oxwagon trail
This historical oxwagon route dates back to 1776 when it was used
by pioneers as a trade route between the coast and the Langkloof valley.
Enjoy magnificent views of the Indian ocean, the lakes around Wilderness
and Sedgefield and the verdant Langkloof valley.
The 30km route starts on Louvain Guestfarm and ends at the entrance of the
Bergplaas Forestry station on the Seven Passes road between George and Knysna.
It takes approximately two and a half hours to complete, and is enjoyable
and scenic without being unduly demanding.
A permit is required to enter the forestry area and the cost hereof
is included in our price of R200 per vehicle.
