    Sad, I wonder what caused this to happen ?

    Would be useful for other D4 owners to know.

    Someone in the video appeared to have made a comment that grass under the vehicle caught alight, could very well be from a hot exhaust or even a stompie,

    From the tail lights on the video it looks like a d3. If it's a diesel I'll hazard a guess that one of the leakoff pipes popped off

    Shame! Geez that must be a horrible thing to have to see!

    As said, was probably grass that caused it. Can happen to any vehicle! Wonder how often it would be prudent to stop, and check the undersides of your car when travelling like this? Every half-hour? Every hour? Every 10km?

    This has to be the absolute biggest fear of mine when out on an adventure in some remote locations... the smallest thing can cause this when you arent aware... something as simple as a spark from the fire onto a awning...

    Probably grass. There is a sandy stain on the man's one shoulder, probably tried to extinguish a fire underneath the vehicle. But like all the other comments here I am just speculating.

    On the Whatsapp video the sound is better. Kallie asks a local how far Makopong is from there. I gather that Makopong is between Mabua and RSA.

    And it does seem like they were stuck in the sand and were trying to dig out when the fire started.

    It looks like they had stopped and unloaded stuff, so hard to tell if it caught fire while driving or parked
