On the 31 October 2017; we had great delight in welcoming the 6th Classic Safari Challenge Rally. The 28 day safari started in Cape Town on the 9 October 2017 and went as far as the Okavango Swamps! It was a wonderful opportunity to immerse oneself in the automotive history as vintage cars arrived from far and wide. The oldest car was a 1927 Bentley 4 ½ Le Manswere!
Participants enjoyed a Halloween celebration and proceeded to the Tuisehuise in Cradock the next day. To learn more about this rally see link: www.endurorally.com/pages/classic-safari-challenge-2017.
INFO TAKEN FROM THE ENDURO RALLY WEBSITE (www.endurorally.com):
Participants on the The 6th Classic Safari Challenge will be exploring some totally new territory within South Africa, Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe and travelling through some stunning terrain.
The driving days are superb with scenery ranging from forest to desert taking in the Indian Ocean and Namibia’s majestic Skeleton coast. Our route takes you through vast plains, vineyards, beaches and game parks with plenty of opportunities to enjoy the spectacular wildlife. A light aircraft flight will take you to the Okavango Delta where you can relax in luxurious lodges and enjoy a choice of game drives.
A first for the Classic Safari, we will stay in the Marine Hotel, Hermanus, giving you the opportunity for whale watching as October is the ideal time to see them. You will stay at the very best accommodation available with maximum comfort, good friends, fine dining and soak up Africa’s stunning atmosphere.
The month of October is one of the best times to visit South Africa, pleasant temperatures, neither too hot nor too cold with balmy evenings and just a little rainfall. It will be the very beginning of the African summer and a good time for game viewing. We are looking to take 25 cars with us on this experience of a lifetime.
The Classic Safari is a rally with a strong social content, exhilarating driving days, spiced up with an optional Time Trial for those who want to have a bash at some competitive driving. If you simply want to tour around, then a tarmac alternative route will be available. You can drive the test or take the main road.
