Safari Rally 2013 Live the legend, drive your dream and *do it *now !

Read the The Safari Rally 2013 story, which finished in Capetown in March.  Or goto 2014

The Safari Rally started on March 3 - 2013 in Stellenbosch. For a drive of three weeks through South Africa, Namibia and Botswana for Classic cars and 4x4's.

The picture on the top of this page was taken by Bart and Jolijn during the reccconaisance of the route, which we did in April 2012.

The three week event will take you through the territories of the “Big Five” game animals as well as five unmissable highlights.

You cross the immense sand dunes of the Kalahari desert, Sossusvlei.

You visit Victoria Falls on the border of Botswana.
You follow the Garden route along the beautiful coast of South Africa.
You visit the wineries, near Stellenbosch.
And best of all, you drive in your own car through one of the best Game Reserves to meet up with the other Big Five.

The Safari Rally caters for those who prefer just driving the route under no stress and with time to stop, film and take pictures. Just visit the coffe tea and lunch stops. 

 

You will have a route book with all the route information, a detailed map and a Garmin loaded with all the neccecairy waypoints and the prebooked accomodations.


Our motto “the best available” also goes for the carefully selected hotels. But bear in mind that we also seek the best available routes, which are not always where the fairytale hotels can be found.
