area and a variety of adventure stations for kids of all ages, they’ll be
begging to stay longer. Virtual reality pods, wacky wheels rides, a
parachute ride, putt putt will provide hours of entertainment and excitement

2. Extreme makeover of a bakkie into the ultimate 4×4
Witness a vehicular facelift of epic proportions as the winner of a prize
valued at R177 000 has his 2018 Ford Ranger transformed into a custom-built
road trip vehicle. Taking place live over the three days of the show and
involving the modification of everything from suspension to tyres, this is
an overland enthusiast’s dream come true.

variety of tastes to satisfy your cravings, including an SAB beer tent with
live bands throughout the day and food trucks such as Strip Cheese, the
Grill Cherrie, Stuff Churro and more. There’s also a market for some retail
therapy, offering Qualito Craft Distillery, Rowdy, Spirit Collection, Scampi
