Warning: This article might be slightly biased.
When Suzuki launched their new Jimny JB74 model in the picturesque highveld region, back in 2018, it became my dream to own one of these small “do-it-all” vehicles. Fast forward to 2022, and our eyes were set on an extensive road trip, covering some 5500km, from the Southern point of South Africa to the Northern, and Eastern parts of the country. Our journey took as back to the location where I fell in love with the JB74, as well as towards Clarens, the town which is set to host the #JimnyGathering in September 2023.

The iconic spiel
Ford Mustang, Ferrari F40, Mercedes 300SL Gullwing. All of these are legends in their own right and will get you plenty of attention but if you need a little more – right now I guarantee it – just get yourself the brand-new Suzuki Jimny.
