We are building on the success we had in 2018 and 2019! It will be the largest gathering of off road motorcycles that Zambia has ever seen, with riders also coming from Zimbabwe, Botswana and South Africa.
We are hard at work exploring for our new enduro race track for 2020! Slightly different than the 2019 track but still as exhilirating with: fast and slow sections, easy riding and challanging sections... All that in a spectacular landscape! We are also calling on all road bikers and adventure bikers to join us for the weekend in June 2020 here in Livingstone! It is a Motorbike Festival Not just for the off road enthusiast.
