South African motorcyclists have been invited to discover the true meaning of adventure in Swaziland next month. The annual KTM ADVENTURE RALLY gives like-minded riders the opportunity to explore the rich beauty and extreme territory that the country is renowned for in an epic tour from 23-26 August.

Set with the backdrop of Ezulwini Valley, rightfully described as the “Valley of Heaven”, each day will start and end at the Lugogo Sun and offers two skill level routes.

If charging down dirt roads and powering through uncharted forests wasn’t enticing enough, KTM has announced an added bonus for the 2018 event.

Adventure-seekers have been offered the possibility of earning a place at the Ultimate Race – an event that will take place as part of the 2019 Merzouga Rally in Morocco with a fully supported ride on the all-new KTM 790 ADVENTURE R.

The brief is clear, for a shot at winning the incredible prize, riders need to be “Ready to Race’.

All participants on a twin cylinder machine can sign-up to compete in a qualifying section during the course of each event. The top two riders overall will be awarded the Ultimate Race experience.

The fully supported prize not only offers the excitement of exploring Morocco on a KTM 790 ADVENTURE R, but also includes flights, accommodation, entry fees, and a full race service.

Not done yet…

As the winners wind through some the world’s most exquisite terrain, they will be treated like factory riders and given the opportunity to be coached by some of the world’s finest and fastest offroad bikers.

The Merzouga Rally is a race over five days with a prologue, and includes a marathon stage in the Moroccan Desert. Stages are varied, navigation is key, and entries come with a wide range of abilities from amateur rally riders to the factory pros.
