All Makes of Vehicles, Off-road Training courses

Your off-roader is the ultimate adventure vehicle, so make sure you don't just drive it on tarmac! Try venturing down the road less-travelled. We have designed a course which covers both the practical and theoretical aspects of off-roading and at the same time teach you about the conservation of both the fauna and flora surrounding us.

I loved every minute of the training course!.

The course has been specifically tailored for Southern African conditions. It was developed by Protea in response to off-roaders wanting to maximise their enjoyment whilst off-roading on a wide variety of terrain and varying conditions. The training is interactive and takes place in the Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve on natural terrain typically found in Southern Africa. We boast some of the most dramatic and rugged wilderness areas in Gauteng, which makes it a perfect environment to learn more about your vehicle and its amazing capabilities.

Our off-road 4x4 training course is designed to help you practice with others so that you can improve your off-road driving skills. We offer one-day intensive driver training course for Toyota, Nissan, Ford, Mazda, Mahindra, GWM, Landrover, Isuzu, etc.

It is an adventurous and fun day out for you and your family to enjoy with interaction between the family and loads of fun. Off-roading is about the family and the joy it brings, the understanding and appreciation of negotiating the road less-travelled. The course is suitable for all types of off-road vehicles including 4x4’s, 4x2’s and also soft-roaders (vehicles without low range).

Be prepared. If you’re a new or a old hand to 4x4’s and off-roading or have recently bought your 4x4, boost your confidence and abilities with a tailor made 4x4/4x2/soft roader driver training course. Our courses is focused on having as little impact on the environment as possible by making use of good 4x4 principals.

Our unique off-road training facility is designed for you to get to know your vehicle in a comfortable, safe, controlled, and eco-friendly environment.
Get your travel plans in order. We have a host of unspoilt dream destinations lined up just for you. Ranging from fully catered weekend getaway tours to cross border camping safari tours.

I just wanted to thank you and your team for a fantastic day on Sunday. It was amazing to see just what these vehicles are capable of and was great to learn how to make the most of the vehicle. I will definitely be recommending your course to friends and family. It was fun, informative, overwhelming at times but most of all, it was unforgettable. Thanks again.


Thanks so much. We had a great time on the obstacle course yesterday. It has to be one of the best marked and laid out courses we have done!


Dina and I would like to thank you once again for a very special day we had the pleasure of participating in on Saturday. The venue , attention to detail , dissemination of information , hands on instruction and obstacle instruction , assistance by your co-presenters and not forgetting the lunch was excellent .  It is one of the best participation days I have ever had the privileged of being involved in and learnt a lot which will no doubt influence the ability of my general road handling ability and that of my off road knowledge .Photos will be made available to you as soon as possible and once again I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to any company or individual.


Yep, the family loved it. It was good to get a feel for how entertained the kids are when ‘stuck in the car’. They (actually we) survived all be it a half day! The route was good and the knowledge you shared added to the entertainment value. Feel like I’m getting to grips with the vehicle now. We’re keen to get one major trip in with you next year, possibly the March trip to Mozambique.


Baie dankie weereens Jannie – dit was regtig n’ heerlike familie uitstappie vir ons en was ons almal baie beindruk met die terrein en jou hele benadering. Sien uit daarna om weer te sien in die afsienbare toekoms.



Just to let you know after doing your 4x4 training in my vehicle it has helped greatly I did a trip through the baviaans kloof with some friends where I could show them some of the proper driving techniques we did the trip in 4 days camping and had no problems with the drive from any of us.
