We do not like winters; this is why we head for the nice climate of southern Africa. The Trails of Afrika will be crossing much of the lands which were once inhabited in great extend by Dutch settlers and later also by Germans. This is why we use the Germanic spelling of the word Africa.


We will be starting with the Western Cape province, covering many of South Africa’s great tourist destinations and attractions. Actually we were very tempted to make a rally only in this one province. But having been to Namibia, you really know that it is the superlative.


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).
