The Four Wheel Drive Club of Southern Africa (FWDCSA) is a family orientated recreational 4×4 Club that stands for responsible off-road driving. We are involved in family four-wheeling, driver education, and environmental conservation.
The FWDCSA Port Elizabeth branch was started in 1992 by a small group of passionate 4x4 enthusiasts who felt the need to co-ordinate and structure themselves in order to reduce individual organising efforts.
They then joined the National Four Wheel Drive Club of Southern Africa and have been operating under this banner ever since.
Our run coordinators organize day/week-end trips to various off-road trails in diverse terrain in close proximity to Port Elizabeth, some of which are not open to the general public. A standard trail rating system is used to ensure that drivers are aware of the experience and equipment levels required to participate in an event:
Our club operates on a limited 29MHZ frequency for convoy communication and safety. We are members of ORRA (Off Road Radio Association) who controls and issues radio licenses. (They also provide training and information where necessary).
We have regular social get-togethers where members and friends can partake in varied events such as bring & braais, dances or other fun social activities. Children are always welcome and are specially catered for. Our socials are informal and entertaining.
As a member of the FWDCSA-PE you will receive regular updates informing you of events within the club and the 4x4 world in South Africa regarding legislation, competitions, safari opportunities and much more, as well as entertaining and fun articles. Our club promotes healthy fun, rivalry and camaraderie, therefore a good sense of humor is required
