The club was formed in 1960 by a handful of like-minded people who were passionate about their Land Rovers and wanted to enjoy all the benefits of owning a Land Rover. Over the years many of the faces have changed, as have the vehicles themselves, but the basic reasons for the existence of the club still remain. These include bringing together the owners of Land Rovers, organizing events for members and encouraging members in the proper use and maintenance of their Land Rovers.
The Club is based in the Gauteng region of South Africa, but has ‘country’ and ‘overseas’ members almost spanning the globe. The current membership is around the 500 mark, representing (at last count) some 900 Land Rovers of all ages, shapes and sizes. Although most of the official correspondence tends to be in English, the club has a substantial Afrikaans membership and many other languages are also spoken.
Over the past decade or so, the club has gone from strength to strength and is recognized in the industry as one of the most prestigious off-road clubs to be associated with, renowned for its good conduct and always striving to ensure that its members will be welcomed back to venues it has visited.
