From Cape Town we go as far east as the “must do ”Swartberg Pass” before going west again. On the other side of the Pass the landscape changes completely as we are in the Great Karoo, a semi desert area.
Driving west the scenery changes gradually until we are in the garden of South Africa, at least the vine gardens of South Africa.
To get the “real Africa” impression we drive up north into Namibia with its dunes, plains and national parks. The scenery is truly magic, out of another world, the mountain ranges and dunes seem interlaced in an endless procession.
We leave our cars in Walvisbaai and charter a plane to Botswana. Here we have two days of safari in one of the most beautiful parks of South Africa. The reward for all this driving.
It is only a 100 km drive via the Zambezi National Park to the Grand finale at the Royal Livingstone Hotel overlooking the Victoria Waterfalls.
The rally is open to well prepared pre-war cars and pre-war models built after the war. There is a slight competitive element, based on navigation and on small tests with the car.
We will provide transportation from the Netherlands and the UK and from other places on request.
We are planning to cover 3.550 km in 22 days, including 6 days with no driving (in your car).
We are pleased to present you the Trails of Afrika rally for pre-war cars.
Together with Ross Crichton who has over 15 years of experience in car events in Southern Africa, we have put together a truly fantastic rally. Ross knows all the roads in South Africa like his pocket and he has been to all the best hotels with his events.
You can now register for this fantastic event. A total of 19 days, 13 days of driving, 3.350 km. At the end of the rally itself we leave our car in Windhoek (to be shipped back) and we take a chartered plane to the best of the best in safari land, the national parks between Botswana and Zambia.
The Grande Finale is at the Royal Livingstone Hotel overlooking the Victoria Falls.
There is a slight competitive element, but it is there just to add some livelihood at the bar. Local car clubs will assist us with some challenges.
The main aim is to see Southern Africa, enjoy it at the best possible resorts and to drive the most beautiful roads with your pre-war car.
The rally is open to pre-war cars and pre-war models build just after the war.
