DRIVE THROUGH THE SCENIC TERRIAN OF KENYA AND TANZANIA ON THE ROUTES USED BY THE EAST AFRICAN SAFARI CLASSIC RALLY AS A REGULARITY EVENT.

The 2009 Safari Challenge will run alongside the 2009 East African Safari Classic Raly. Its an awesome opportunity to drive some fabulous roads in both Kenya and Tanzania competitively whilst having time on your hands to see both of these wonderful countries in a way that the normal tourist will never experience. Many of the roads used have been stages on the Safari since its first run in 1953, then called The Coronation Safari. For 2009 there are some new roads in use taking the event even further into the bush and seeing wildlife along the route!!

Each day will see 2 or 3 Regularities on loose and sometimes rough roads with an added bonus: we are going to run some higher, but still safe, average speeds!! The regularities will all be on the same roads the Rally is using so you will get to see some absolutely amazing countryside. On most days, after the regularities, we plan to give you a shorter route to the finish so you can then either watch the rally somewhere or retire to a great hotel. You will, most definitely, see sights that will amaze you.


So, where does it go? The Start and Finish are on Mombasa's North Coast at the Whitesands Hotel. This is directly on the beach and has almost all of the facilities you will need. It's also within easy taxi distance of one of the best seafood restaurants in the world!! And if you have a ground floor room you can be in the pool in 15 seconds!! Two nights, not consecutive, will be spent at Voi Wildlife lodge, two nights at The Ngurudoto Mountian Lodge in Arusha and two nights alongside Lake Naivasha at either the Simba Lodge or Naivasha Country Club. The icing on the cake is two nights at one of the great lodges in Amboseli Game Reserve with a complete day off to enable you to see a huge variety of animals.

The event is run by the same organization as the Classic Safari Rally with Surinder Thatthi heading up the team and with TWM acting as consultants for the Challenge. Mike Summerfield has been Deputy Clerk of the Course of the main rally since the first one in 2003 so knows the event inside out. Ron Jackson will be Clerk of the Course of the Challenge and will be assisted by at least one of our regular Redshirts. The marshalling team is all Kenyan and will be experienced crew from previous Safari Rallies.

This really is a fantastic opportunity to visit two of the most picturesque countries in the world whilst fulfilling your competitive urges!! For more information have a look at our "Questions and Answers".
We also have an "Arrive and Drive" deal for those who do not want to bring out their own car from Europe for this exercise. Have a look at "Arrive & Drive" link.
