It is true that there is sometimes strength in numbers! This is especially true when we drive in remote and dangerous locations! We have recently decided to provide our visitors to the Arrive Alive website, not only with road safety advice on the main roads – but also share safety advice for when they go off-road!
In Southern Africa there are many opportunities for 4×4 off-road driving experiences. It is not only the adventure traveller and tourist on safari who go off-road, but also the individual who does community aid work. Driving with a 4×4 is often the only way to reach these remote locations. Our less experienced volunteer from Europe might be in danger without prior knowledge and training on driving a 4×4 in the mountains of Lesotho….
Perhaps the best way to avoid the accident claim and life threatening accident is to undergo practical 4×4 driver training. On the Arrive Alive website we have been able to provide rather comprehensive training materials and valuable advice on how to make your 4×4 driver experience a safe experience!
We will on this blog also provide information on how to find the best 4×4 vehicle insurance. For now we would like to start by providing information on how to drive safely and avoid the accident. We would like to refer our visitors to the Arrive Alive road safety website and a checklist / Off-roaders Guide to Gearing up for Off-road:
This will provide advice from the most basic equipment to the well equipped and focus on the following:
- The Basic List
- Safety and Survival
- Beyond the Basic Off-road Checklist
