Eye to Eye with The Big Five
November 2014 sees the start of our next long distance event, a drive of three weeks through South Africa, Namibia and Botswana for Classic Cars and 4x4s.
The twenty two day event will take you through the most exciting territories of “The Big Five” game animals, as well as great scenic highlights not to be missed.
Marvel at the world’s highest sand dunes of the Kalahari Desert in Sossusvlei.
You visit the only game park which allows you to drive your own car.
You feel the thunder of the Victoria Falls.
You follow the blooming garden route along the beautiful coast of South Africa.
You visit wineries near Stellenbosch.
Best of all, you drive in your own car through one of the best Game Reserves to meet up with the other “Big Five”. Watch the video of 2013
For those interested in competition sections there will be two or three a day, but if you prefer a gentle drive, there is the Safari Class which just visits the important controls. Due to the nature of the countries we are passing through and the limited high quality accommodation available, there is a strictly limited number of start places.

Yes man this is Africa
The Desert Landscape of Sossusvlei
One of the most compelling features of Namibia is the astounding landscape of Sossusvlei, a part of the Namib Desert. We take a tour of this desert landscape of Sossusvlei in Namibia – part of the World’s Ten Greatest Attractions.
The most spectacular moments to visit the dunes of Sossusvlei are the minutes before sunset and the minutes after sunrise. It is sometimes windy, sometimes very, very wet. The only noise you hear is your own heartbeat.
Etosha National Park
Namibia and Etosha National Park is an unspoiled safari and adventure destination. There are plenty of parks and places with great opportunities to watch the wildlife and “The Big Five”.
Namibia’s bountiful sunshine, abundant wildlife, scenic beauty and rich diversity of geological phenomena make the country a sought-after tourist destination to which visitors return again and again. Additional plus points are the friendliness and cultural diversity of its people, a well-developed infrastructure and an extensive choice of parks, resorts and accommodation. The latter range from five-star luxury hotels to upmarket guest lodges in the quiet seclusion of the bush.
Victoria Falls, so named by the 19th century (Scottish!) explorer Dr David Livingstone, is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. He saw the falls for the first time in 1855 and said “scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight”.
The spray rising above the falls has given them its local name “The Smoke that Thunders”. The falls are almost too beautiful to paint.
The width is 1.6 kilometres and the height up to 108 metres, twice the size of The Niagara Falls. A truly magnificent marvel of nature.
Visit Table Mountain overlooking Capetown. Eye to eye with the ocean’s gentle giants. South Africa prides itself on the best land-based whale-watching in the world. Watching whales in their natural environmnent is an overwhelming experience of nature at its most glorious, making a memory to last a lifetime.
The 9,000 kilometre route has been carefully selected and will take you over great asphalt roads as well as smooth gravel, to places where the tourists never go. Our motto “the best available” also goes for the carefully selected hotels, lodges and guest houses, but bear in mind that we also seek the best available routes, which are not always where the fairy-tale hotels can be found. As capacity is limited, we can only take 25 crews for this adventure.
Experienced Service Crews will follow the rally to make sure that nobody gets stranded. They are there to get you going again when you are stuck, not to do your daily maintenance.
The Safari Rally is by invitation only. With the enclosed form you may apply to compete. Note that there is a limit on the number of crews that we can invite. Within four weeks of receipt of your application form you will be notified if you are invited.
