  • EA 2018 : Registration day

    After a good nights sleep and a well deserved breakfast at Letsatsi Lodge's Red Ox Steak House, the teams made their way to registration and compulsory equipment check. Namaqua west coast will offer up a challenging route with very limited access to food, water and outside help. It is extremely important that they carry with them all necessary equipment and be self sufficient between transitions. The teams also took part in the traditional flag parade which lead them down the main street through Van Rhyns Dorp and back into Letsatsi lodge. The evening ended off with a traditional "Braai" prepared by Namaqua West Coast Tourism.

  • EA 2018 : Final Prep Day

    It's The day before the start of Expedition Africa 2018 And with the teams having access to more info about the route earlier than previous editions, there was definitely a more relaxed atmosphere In all the different camps. Team KeyHelath Neverest joined the local park run before joining up with the rest of the teams to collect their race passports in Vreedendal. The rest of the day was spent finalising equipment and gathering the last of the needed supplies. The biggest surprise of the day though has to be the unexpected rain storm that descended on Van Ryhnsdorp, the first in 3 years!

  • Expedition Africa 2019 : Rodrigues!

    Its the announcement you have all been waiting for!
    It's official, Expedition Africa 2019 will be held on the beautiful island of Rodrigues. After many years of hosting EA on the African continent, we have decided to mix it up a little next year and move our beautiful race to a tropical island. Why? ... Because we can :-)

    And.... because we pride ourselves in offering access to unique and stunning locations, exposure to warm and welcoming communities, the pursuit of Adventure and Family friendly racing...
    The sport of Adventure Racing is forever evolving. The format is easily adaptable to the needs of the athletes, organisers, media, sponsors and supporters.
    We have taken our years of experience hosting Africa's most prestigous Adventure race and presented it in a new exciting format that will be EA 2019 Rodrigues!

    So pack your sunscreen and swimwear, bring your family and friends. This is an Expedition you do not want to miss! As always, limited spots available and based on the response we have had so far, we believe this event will sell out quickly.

    Entries open on the 1st August 2018. Visit www.kinetic-events.co.za for race details and updates.

  • Flag Parade & Opening Ceremony | ExpAfrica Rodrigues 2019

    It was a busy day for teams with one day to go before the start and athletes had a basket of activities to enjoy with the Flag Parade and Opening Ceremony. for added fun, there was a police escort MTB ride from the North to South side of the Island.

    There was a mix of emotions throughout the day for many and it was clear that excitement and nervous anticipation was difficult to balance.

    One thing is certain, regardless of team goals, strategy, route options and endless planning - the race will start tomorrow.

    It is certainly going to be a epic island adventure
