Capture the uniqueness of the N4 and stand a chance of winning


The N4 Toll Route, from Tshwane in Gauteng to Maputo in Mozambique, is undoubtedly one of the most scenic roads in South Africa.  It is known for its tranquil surroundings, luscious scenery and distinctive geological and tourist attractions – in fact it so unique and distinctive that no amount of adjectives can do it justice.

In view of this, the concessionaire of the road – Trans African Concessions (TRAC) – has decided to showcase the route’s splendour through its 2015 Calendar, which will be compiled through the TRAC N4 2015 Calendar Photography Competition.

The TRAC executive calendar (one page a month) is presented annually to TRAC’s directors, investors, management and the company’s best customers.
