Open Days at Base 4


On a monthly basis, the Four Wheel Drive Club of Southern Africa has an Open Day at its property at Base 4. We alternate between formal and informal open days. On formal days we will have guest speakers, the caterer will be available for meals and other interesting things will be happening at Base 4. On informal open days the bar will be open and everyone is still welcome to come to the club to relax and enjoy the facilities, however we will not have a set program and the caterer will also not be on site.

Each formal Open Day has a programme of events of interest to members, and these are also great opportunities for non-members to come along and see what the club is all about. A wide range of topics is presented by specialists in their field, and every one relates to the 44 or outdoor experience.

Please feel free to invite friends or prospective members to Base 4. Remember the new membership incentive use the open day to get them to join up!

Vibe Catering will be serving breakfast and lunch so bring your appetite.

Next Open Day Programme
12 November 2017

Join us for our November Open Day. We will be having interesting talks from Johan Marais and Ian Engelbrecht.

Johan will give us a talk on snakes and the courses he offers. This talk is a must, and always of interest to us who spend a lot of time in the bush, where we come into contact with these reptiles.

Ian will be giving a talk on baboon spiders. This is an opportunity for people who are nervous about spiders to see that they are 'friendly'. 

Meals will be available from our very own caterers or bring 'n braai - bring your meat, salads, rolls, camping chairs, etc. and enjoy a relaxing afternoon in the peaceful surroundings of Base 4.
