Get ready for an action-packed rally experience at the Buffalo stage of the KCB Kenya National Rally Championship in Thika! The Rally Sports Club [RSC] has announced that spectators can spend the night at the Buffalo Hill, where tenting and catering services will be available at a fee. Double-bed tents can be rented for 2,500bob and food and drink will also be provided.

However, it’s important to note that COVID-19 guidelines will be strictly enforced for everyone attending the event. Spectators will only be allowed access to the Buffalo stage the day before the race to avoid traffic congestion on Sunday. Additionally, the MKU Graduation Pavilion will feature a designated viewing area for fans, where a 3.2km spectator stage will be repeated twice. The rally promises thrilling action and serves as a fantastic opportunity for sports tourism in Kenya. Don’t miss out on this exhilarating event!

The rally is not just about speed. “We are championing sustainability initiatives like tree growing, recycling and waste management in the run-up, during and after the Safari Rally,” said KCB Bank Kenya CEO Paul Russo. All WRC partners are teaming up to promote environmental sustainability. Together, they’re planting up to 400,000 trees and taking care of our precious planet. It’s like rallying and saving the world all at once!
