Safari-on-the-Run™: Mapungubwe Wildrun

Thursday, 9 May, 2019 - 09:00 to Monday, 13 May, 2019 - 09:00

A 92km, 3 day trail running safari experience through the culturally significant & wildlife rich bushveld of the Greater Mapungubwe Transfrontier Conservation area.

 From the ancient Mapungubwe citadel in South Africa, to the rolling savannah of Botswana’s Tuli block; this journey of discovery takes us across the mighty Limpopo River to the banks of the gigantic Shashe River, through the rural villages of Maramani, past huge Baobabs & along ancient elephant trails etched into stone in Zimbabwe; this is the ultimate safari-on-the-run experience in one of Africa’s most sought-after big-game areas.

The event will take place on 9-13 May 2018 and will follow a clover-leaf pattern from base camp in Maramani, Zimbabwe. On day one, the route traverses through Sentinel ranch in Zimbabwe, day two will take runners across the confluence of the Limpopo and Shashe Rivers into the famed Northern Tuli Game Reserve (Botswana) and day three crosses into South Africa, for a run through the Mapungubwe National Park, including a hilltop tour of the Mapungubwe Hill. The Safari-on-the-Run: Mapungubwe is a guided running experience through the African bush. Participants will join one of five speed running groups, from fast pace to slow and will be able to choose this during the entry process.
