Throughout wonderful Kenya & Tanzania

15 February to 5 March 2020

Explore some of the world’s great game viewing areas, avoiding the crowds, on an exclusive and exhilarating East African expedition.

Who is this rally for? Simple answer – anyone

Although bear in mind, with lots of gravel sections, your car will need to be appropriately prepared. Please call Rally the Globe HQ if you have any questions.

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.
