October 30th - November 6th 2010 Kalahari Desert Adventure Botswana 2010 Navigational/Adventure Challenge
The adventure will be open to all 4x4 owners and dual purpose off road bikes. Entries are on line. Starts in SA between Magaliesburg and Rustenburg
and ends in Gaborone. The aim of the adventure is to test the navigational and driving skills of off roaders where we will be giving you several GPS waypoints
and some directions for you to find , "Dakar style" except we don't care how fast you can do this ,slower will defiantly make it easer to find the correct route.
The team or rider who can find these GPS waypoints in the shortest distance will be deemed to be the winner of the event. I can assure you that this
will not be as easy as you think as you will be required to find your way through a maze of roads, bushes, rivers and villages that only the Kalahari can offer you.
