4th Annual Botswana Air Race

Unread postby mdw031 » Sat Feb 17, 2018 1:58 pm

Hi all,

I recently came across an add in the February 2018 edition of SA Flyer for the 4th annual Botswana Air Race, which is stated to happen on 28June to 1 July 2018.
Obviously being interested, I tried to access the website to sign up just to find that the website was down. I then tried to contact the number and the email address provided but to no avail.

Does anyone know when the entry polls will be open? And if this event will even happen?

Thanks x

I think you are talking about Race for Rhinos, is that correct?

I think they 'signed' a 5 year agreement, and will most probably renew it after that..
