What others thought

The marathon was a fantastic experience. The safari game drives and other activities such as mountain biking, bush walks etc. made it a great holiday. Also, it was very well organised.

Very nice nature, animals and everything else! Wonderful experience at all. And what a once in a lifetime marathon course!

The scenery and wildlife were absolutely fantastic to see and run amongst. Great support from the locals, volunteers, rangers and race officials. Awesome atmosphere.
