Bundutec Defender Trophy
Limpopo 2020 (18-23 May)

Limpopo 2020 (18-23 May)

Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park

(South Africa | Zimbabwe | Mozambique)

Cross the Limpopo riverbed from South Africa into Zimbabwe using a special undesignated border crossing .. (water levels permitting)

The “Bundutec Defender Trophy” is a family friendly overlanding event for Defender enthusiasts.  Only “natural obstacles” and routes are selected with care to ensure maximum fun even with a stock standard Defender.  You do however need to be self sufficient in terms of food, drinking water and camping equipment.

Bonding and camaraderie between participants is what we strive for.

You would also need a two-way radio, GPS, ideally with Tracks4Africa maps, to be able to follow the route, and answer the questions en-route.

NB: This is NOT a 4×4 driving competition – points are earned by answering  questions regarding the local Fauna and Flora, Culture and History of the area, Land Rover Defender and our Sponsors
