Guiding Life's Greatest Adventures

Choose your Adventure

We cater for all your 4x4, off-road and overlanding adventure needs

A Nature Lover's Dream

The tours, overlanding and weekend trips allow you access to remote areas in national parks and reserves that are not frequented by many visitors. The surrounding wilderness, the remoteness and the seclusion of traveling through rarely seen areas are the main thrills of our tours, overlanding and weekend trips.

A professional 4x4 And Overlanding Adventure Guide (Overnight Camping) will lead the trail itself and will also assist with off-road aspects when necessary.

As a proud owner-run 4x4 tour operator, Bonsai Technologies is able to identify your needs for any particular 4x4 trip and to offer guided and self-guided trips to fit those needs. We are based in Pretoria and have a variety of options to choose from. Else we can assist you in planning a trip to remember. We strive to offer you that “once-in-a-lifetime experience”.

You will stay in chalets, safari tents or you will camp (own camping equipment to be supplied) in the specific South African National Park or nature reserve. On some of the eco trails that last for more than one day, you will have to be self-sufficient in terms of a tent, food, water etc.

4x4 DRIVER TRAINING

PRACTICAL

We believe that the best way to become competent as a responsible eco-friendly off-road driver is to learn 4x4 driving in a practical manner.

DEMONSTRATIVE

The courses are facilitated in the veld and Bonsai Technologies personnel practically demonstrate all theory using training aids and their own vehicles.

INTERACTIVE

You will spend most of the time in and around your vehicle practising off-road driving skills.

ENLIGHTENING

Doing the driving yourself will ensure that you know your vehicle and your own abilities and shortcomings.

"AU NATUREL"

We make maximum use of natural obstacles on the trails that we select for the courses, as you will encounter natural obstacles on your off-road trips.

GUESTBOOK

This is what our fellow adventurours say

" From booking the tour to going on the tour information and arrangements were given timeously. All support information and requirements for having a successful trip and arranging camping equipment were made clear. Information and history of all places visited were given in a casual but very professional manner easy to understand and to make the visit to the specific place/s much more enjoyable and relevant.
The experience and knowledge of the tour guides made it a pleasure, we felt safe and looked after and enjoyed every moment. We relaxed and came back home with memories and pictures to amaze our family and friends.
This was our first trip with Bonsai and was the first of many. "
