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 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 a number of very successful African rallies.

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-1975-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 regularity (time-speed-distance) 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, and you may rely on our expert advice and assistance with everything from car preparation to shipping and insurance. You’ll find more details including the event regulations in the Rally Round Africa brochure, which you may download via the link on this page

The rally will be a truly international affair, as we have crews from Australia, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, Sweden, UK and USA – our latest entrants are Marco and Stephanie Fila in a 1977 Bentley Convertible, Chris and Kathleen Grace in a 1938 Chevrolet Fangio Coupe, Adrian and Ali Martin in a 1948 Jaguar MkIV, Jeremy Holden and Victoria Oliver in a 1955 Morgan Plus 4 and Gary Anderson and Count Harry Dobrzensky in a 1930 Ford Model A Cabriolet; recently announced co-drivers include Fiona Applegarth (for Tony Allen), Julian Griffiths (for Johannes Lips) and Eva Forsberg Schinkler (for Philip Lindsten). Kim and Nikki Bannister completed a route recce in November and you may read or download their report via the link on this page – you can also see more of their photos on Rally Round’s Facebook page. Do please note that there is a limit to the number of cars we can accommodate on this event, so if you would like to take part or have any questions we recommend 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!
