We are proud to announce that the Hankook Land Cruiser Festival will be taking place once again at Sondela Nature Reserve & Spa near Bela Bela from 12 to 14 November 2021, subject to strict Covid 19 protocols in place at the time. The event will now kick off on Fri 12 Sept at 14h00! To make it even more attractive to register and to thank you for supporting the event, we have REDUCED our entry fee by nearly 12%....
This will be the 9th year that this great event will take place and we have managed to break our own records every year! In 2019 we achieved our latest records: 523 Land Cruisers on one site on one day as well as 397 Land Cruisers in a moving convoy of at least 20km. The convoy route is an off-road route at Sondela, with a couple of challenges along the way, but set out in such a way that everyone could complete it and also has a ‘drive through’ along the way for the thirsty! During 2020 we did not chase any records and also now in 2021 we will not be doing so, but rather focus and a fun filled Cruiser Festival! This is due to the Covid protocols in place, as we need to limit the amount of visitors allowed.
Limited ‘bush camp’ (without power, but with great ablution facilities) sites are available to participants and can be booked online when a Cruiser is registered to take part at www.ekspo.co.za
Sondela also offers their resort accommodation and reservations and enquiries can be made directly with the resort at 014 736 8900. The resort is +- 80 km from the north of Pretoria, adjacent to the N1 highway at the Bela Bela offramp. It is a very well equipped resort with plenty to do – please visit www.sondela.com for more. Sondela is also the home of the well known kykNET Buite Ekspo Limpopo, also managed by Trio Events.
It is important that participants make use of our online facility at www.ekspo.co.za to register their Land Cruisers to participate in the non official ‘record attempt’ static formation and off-road convoy. Each entrant will receive a goody bag with some great items in.
