Event Characteristics

A rally that promises diverse wildlife, varied landscapes and cultural experiences on spectacular drives across teeming game reserves and national parks, stopping in top notch safari lodges and luxury hotels.  This is an adventure aimed at both amateur and more experienced crews alike, so if this is your first rally adventure outside Europe – Hakuna Matata*.

Rally Director, Fred Gallagher, has planned a route that avoids the crowds and visits some of the more exclusive game reserves.  This includes a stop at the private estate of Lord and Lady Delamere, who are themselves true rally enthusiasts.  Exhilarating drives will give us amazing views of snow-capped mountains, including Kilimanjaro, and take us through wildlife-rich plains and grasslands where we can expect to see elephants, giraffes, cape buffalo, lions and hippos, as well as hundreds of different birds. There are plenty of tests and regularity sections on the menu to ensure a competitive edge to this expedition, but the pace ensures there will also be plenty of time to enjoy leisurely dining in style and see the abundant game in fascinating landscapes.

*Swahili for “No Problem”



In Watamu, Administrative Checks and Scrutineering will take place at the Rally Headquarters on Saturday 15 February 2020.  The evening will see a drinks reception and a special Rally the Globe welcome dinner with the Indian Ocean as our backdrop.

What our Rally Crews Say About Us…

Reasons to book With Us!

We organise endurance category rallies which are competitive, with significant off-road sections and will challenge us through all the continents of the world. We also organise adventure category rallies which will explore the globe in a lighter competition environment, with minimal off-road sections and at a more civilised pace.

All our club’s rallies will come with the highly experienced support crew and safety cover. We will always find (and we mean it) the best accommodation available and, because we are a not for profit company, we will charge no more than the rallies cost to organise.
