Welcome to Defender Trophy



The Defender Trophy is a family-friendly overland event, and not a driving competition, neither does it test your physical fitness.

It is an event for Land Rover Defender enthusiasts, for people with green blood in their veins, who simply love to drive their Landy’s while exploring the magic of Africa – one of the last places on earth where you can almost drive back into time, and immerse yourself in the raw untamed wilderness, its phenomenal people, fauna and flora.


So how do we determine our winners, you may ask? Well, each day participants receive a questionnaire testing their navigational skills, while prompting them with questions about local culture, fauna and flora, and of course Land Rover Defender.


The team with the highest score will be the overall winners, although everyone that participate in these unique events walk away with the top prize..which is really about camaraderie, new friends, evenings around the bush fire, laughter and fun.
