2nd Namibia Landrover Festival 2018

Landrovers from as far as South Africa and Angola attended the 2nd Landrover Festival in Uis.
120 Landrovers were officially entered but close to 200 Landrovers attended the event with an estimate of around 800 visitors.
The full program started on Friday with a Gold Rush, Landrover Pirates competition, sundowner on the Mine Heap and campfire stories for the evening.
After the official opening of the event on Saturday, drivers could test their skills at the LA Sport 4×4 Expertise drive. Other fun events for the day were the tyre change competition, Gold Rush and Trivia night. The big draw of the evening made Eric Reinhardt from Swakopmund a proud Landrover owner.
Sunday was no exception and started early with competitions and a Treasure Hunt through Uis. A cook-off and the much loved drag races were held the afternoon. The fastest team to set up a tent won themselves a brand new Bush-wackers/Campworld tent.
Landrover owners got together for a drive by and line up on Monday before saying goodbye and returning home.
All proceeds from the festival will go to the DELHRA (Desert Lion Human Relations Aid) and Ehra (Elephant Human Relations Aid). The first project will be for a new pump which will provide water for lions and elephants which will take them further away from human settlements to ease conflict between them.
Landrover lovers can look forward to a third festival for 2020 which is already in the planning.
