Welcome to the 1st edition of the Namaqua African Rally 2014
From the 1st of January each and every red blooded South African off road and adventure rider sits glued to the television for the duration of the Dakar rally.
Since its inception in the eighties when it was a wild and woolly bunch of adventurers who travelled through Northern Africa to Dakar and more recently with the move to South America, the spirit and passion of Rally raiding has gathered momentum.
Rally raiding races are now held on most continents and African Safari Marathon (Pty) Ltd has decided to bring this rally raiding concept to Southern Africa for the first time.
A multi stage road book rally for both bikes and quads will cater for all the facets of off road racing, rally raiding and adventure riders in one fantastic seven day event.
A really generous group of sponsors and partners have come aboard to ensure that the Namaqua African Rally is a memorable event.
The rally takes place in the picturesque Namaqua West Coast region of Southern Africa. It is probably one of the Capes most unique travel destinations in Southern Africa. It is a place of iconic beauty and evocative names.
Namaqualand has an extraordinary botanical heritage that ranges from the drama of the blooming vygieveld in the spring to the eccentric miniature succulents and obscure soil lichens of the Knersvlakte.
Namaqua Wines our title sponsor along with the community of Vredendal will make this adventure a memorable event.
The Namaqua African Rally will cater for all off road enthusiasts, whether you are a serious off road rider, a weekend worrier out for a ride of a lifetime, a leisure rider who wants a guided tour or an Adventure rider who wants to taste the flavour of Dakar style rally raiding from selected spectator points... you can choose.
