  Our expeditions will take us to some of the more remote parts of Africa where we are bound encounter thick sand, and patches of mud during the rainy season. The question is not if we'll get stuck - it's when we'll get stuck. And we are prepared for any sandy or muddy situated we might get our wheels into while exploring Africa. We carry 4 MAXTRAX (the suggested number when towing) - 2 on the vehicle's spare wheel and two on the trailer's roofrack. These two mounting accessories come in handy as it ensures easy accessibility and quick action when getting stuck.

One of the major benefits of using MAXTRAX is the fact that it's so effective and easy to use. We don't spend much time getting out - as quick as 5 minutes and we're back on track.

See the below image of a MAXTRAX to see why it works so well.
