Rally Round Africa
1-27 October 2018
An exhilarating and luxurious safari from Dar es Salaam to Cape Town
The Adventure of a Lifetime
We invite you to join us on an exhilarating new expedition – Rally Round Africa 2018. Exploring the iconic landscapes, cultures and wildlife of Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Botswana, Swaziland and South Africa, the 6700km route from Dar es Salaam to Cape Town features everything from lush forests to awesome deserts, fertile vineyards, vibrant cities, legendary coastlines and fabulous game reserves – the four-week itinerary includes no fewer than six safari drives, so you are sure to see Africa’s ‘big five’ game animals (lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhinoceros) and much more besides. Staying in fabulous lodges and hotels, and dining in style, it will surely be the adventure of a lifetime.
The Rally Round team has extensive experience of organising events in Africa. Director and Royal Geographical Society member Liz Wenman has worked with the Smithsonian Institute in South Africa and with Free The Children in Kenya, whilst rally coordinator Heidi Winterbourne and internationally renowned route designer and Clerk of the Course Kim Bannister have together run numerous African rallies including three Classic Safaris.
In keeping with our established philosophy, Rally Round Africa will be a luxurious, relaxed and highly sociable event, suitable for expert and novice crews alike and open to any vintage or pre-1969-type classic car. Rally Round maintains a safety record second to none, and there will be no hazardous speed sections, night driving, car-breaking terrain or trick navigation – the entire route will be set out in a comprehensive and straightforward roadbook. Spectacular drives will be spiced with timed sections for those who wish to compete but there will be alternative routes for those who prefer to tour, with plenty of rest days for all. As ever, we will be accompanied by fully qualified medical personnel and mechanical support teams, plus a luggage transport service, and you may rely on our expert advice and assistance with everything from car preparation to shipping and insurance. More details and a full-colour brochure will be published in due course.
The number of cars we can accommodate on this wonderful event is strictly limited, so if you wish to join us or have any questions we suggest you contact the Rally Office as soon as possible via the Enquiry button at the top of this page. We look forward to hearing from you!
