April 2017 Issue

This month we look at Zimbabwe. Is it a great overland destination, or nothing but a frustration? Well, it’s a bit of both. The cops with their road blocks are frustrating, but there are some magical places to discover.

Our second big adventure this month is a journey to a wet but very beautiful Lesotho. We travelled up Sani Pass and through the Cloud Kingdom in an Isuzu KB. Things got very, very slippery.

Which is the fastest standard bakkie in South Africa? We lined up all the most popular double cabs for a fun but slightly pointless test. Egos will be bruised.

Our road test is the Maserati Levante. Can a 3.0-litre diesel SUV deliver the Maserati experience?

On the technical side, we look at sand driving. How should you do it, how should you not do it, and why are tyre pressures so important?

Lastly, we look at the absolute bargains you can find on the second-hand 4×4 market for R1 million.
