ONE LIFE, LIVE IT
3,000 MILES, 5 COUNTRIES, 14 DAYS.
COAST TO COAST IN THE WACKIEST CARS TO EVER CROSS AFRICA.
Journey coast-to-coast across the African continent with fellow thrill seekers who share a passion for nature and adventure, whilst having the experience of a life time.
Teams will tackle 3,000 miles in 14 days crossing 5 countries. The event's big twist though, sees teams choose between the whacky vehicles in the Mzanzi Trophy car pool, which vary from a retro ice cream van, to a New York taxi!
Tick off some of Africa’s most awe-inspiring ‘bucket list’ experiences: quad bike across deserts; walk through leopard country; micro light over the Victoria Falls; and get your hands dirty as you help uplift a rural community.
Engage with locals who will be as fascinated by what you are doing as you will be by them. The Mzanzi Trophy is designed to immerse participants in the everyday raw, pure, unfiltered Africa that is so seldom seen and experienced.
