This trip is full, but if you would like to join, leave your details and we will let you know when someone drops out!


The plan this year is to centre the trip around a visit to the stunning Katse Dam.

The finer details of the trip are still being finalized and will be communicated soon, but you can bank on leaving the Rotunda at 06hoo on Friday 29 March and returning on Monday 1 April 2024, with an unforgettable experience in between.

Unfortunately, for logistical and safety reasons, the trip is restricted to 10 vehicles, so register early.
