The Spirit of Africa Trophy

Follow Spirit of Africa Trophy on Facebook
The Spirit of Africa is about adrenaline, speed and experiencing the great outdoors. If you are looking for an exciting three-day experience which includes camping under the African sky, traditional South African food in between intense off-road driving, you will enjoy taking part in the ultimate test drive.
Get behind the wheel of the Volkswagen Amarok and experience the thrill of the Spirit of Africa Trophy – a series of off-road courses designed by rally legend, Sarel van der Merwe. It's viewed as the "toughest 4x4 challenge in Africa" so the Amarok is the perfect bakkie to be the official competition vehicle.
The Spirit of Africa Trophy is the Southern Africa leg of the international Spirit of Amarok Championship. To represent your country in the Spirit of Amarok you have to first conquer two competition rounds of the Spirit of Africa: the eliminations and the final. Only the toughest top 20 teams with the highest scores from the elimination rounds are invited to compete in the Spirit of Africa finals, where the title and overall champion of the Spirit of Africa Trophy will be fiercely contended.
