International Runners

As an international runner flying in from overseas we appreciate that you may need more local support from the event than a regional or local runner.  With that in mind we have a few options to help make your run with us as easy and memorable as possible.  We can offer the following upon request:

  • Transport from Maun International Airport (5h30 drive) or Sir Seretse Khama International Airport in Gaborone (6h30 drive) to the race village.  Both airports have flights to and from Johannesburg.  Note that if you plan on a safari before of after the race that Maun is the better option due to its proximity to the Northern game reserves.  The transport costs to site will depend on how many runners and supporters use the service.
  • Accommodation is tents for all runners and guests.  Tent rental options are:
    1. Event supplied 4 man nylon tents and mattresses available to rent for BWP1,000.00 for 2 nights. You will use event bucket showers and portaloos that are shared with the self-campers.  You would need to provide you own sleeping bag and pillows etc.
    2. 3rd party supplied larger canvas tents with cot beds and bedding that have their own bucket showers and chemical toilets.  These will cost a minimum of  BWP6,600 per tent for the two nights.  We need a minimum of 5 requests for these tents.
    3. We ask all runners and supporters to bring their own camping chairs, cutlery, bowls, cups etc to reduce our impact on the Planet and area.  We can provide these for you upon request free of charge.

Botswana is the World’s premiere safari destination.

  • The price for these safaris varies depending on where you stay, how long you stay for and what you do.
  • The options vary on one hand from an exciting but affordable self drive in a fully kitted 4×4 vehicle where you are in charge of your adventure; to an all inclusive fly in 5* award winning luxury lodge on the other hand where you don’t have to lift a finger.
  • You can also include the amazing Victoria Falls and gorgeous Cape Town as very easy add ons with direct flights to and from Maun. We will help you speak to a booking agent who can arrange the perfect safari for your needs within your budget.  The photos are video are for Desert and Delta Safaris who are one of our event partners and are a great starting point to see what is on offer.
