About Us

 What is Team Offroad all about?
     
 

The offroad sector consists of many different areas of expertise. By way of strategic partnerships we have managed to build a team of experts in some of the varied disciplines. It all came together when a few friends with the passion for the great outdoors, offroading and traveling got together and decided to pool their expertise and knowledge to serve the 4x4 community in this beautiful country from a unified front.

For a while we were working under our own brands, but we decided to change our brand to Team Offroad for those activities where we are all involved, simplifying naming and branding issues. Team Offroad was born.

Our offering includes, but is not limited to, Accredited 4x4 & Offroad Driver Training, Overland Safaris, Team Building, Fun Days, Weekend Excursions, 4x4 Fitment and Accessories, Equipment Suppply & Rental, Tour Planning & Consulting. Our clients become our friends, and we love to share our outdoors experiences with them.

Our members own and drive a wide variety of 4x4 vehicles which means that we are not hung upon a specific brand of vehicle and can best advise on the pro's and cons of the different types of vehicles on the market.  We also have access to product experts for most 4x4 vehicles available on the SA market.  

Our TETA accreditation for offroad driver training comes from associations with 4x4 Offroad Academy (TETA10-113) as well as The Training Connection (TETA09-214).  Together with Alan Goodway from Isibonela Adventures we were responsible for the WegRy/DriveOut 4x4 Academy in the Western Cape.
