The 2013 Put Foot Rally: “The greatest social rally on the face of the earth.”

The Put Foot Rally is an epic 18-day African adventure that sees 40 crews take to the open roads of Southern Africa to experience our continent in its purest and wildest form. Crews will start off from the Start Line in South Africa: in the heart of the Mother City, Cape Town. They will then head off to checkpoints at Namibia’s Etosha Park, Zambia’s Victoria Falls, Malawi’s Lake Malawi and Mozambique’s tropical paradise. At each checkpoint crews will indulge in the indigenous flavours of local cuisine and traditional beverages while partying the night away to the rhythm that beats the African drum, before retiring to their individual spaces under the African night-sky.


Most importantly, the rally utilises social media platforms to raise money for the Put Foot Foundation. More than R590,000 was raised in 2012. Read More...
