Johannesburg, South Africa – For the second year running, Nissan South Africa is at the helm of sponsorship for the exhilarating 20th Spirit of Africa edition, a summit of adrenaline and adventure for offroad aficionados.

This partnership underscores Nissan’s commitment to cultivating a community of adventure seekers and provides an ideal platform to demonstrate the robust all-terrain capabilities and sophisticated technology of the Nissan Navara.

The Spirit of Africa is synonymous with high-speed, adrenaline-pumping action, and immersive outdoor experiences.

“We are thrilled to bring back the challenge this year with unprecedented vigor, and we were eager to see our motoring colleagues in action in the tough and revamped Nissan Navara,” stated Maciej Kleinkiewicz, Managing Director for Nissan SA.

“At last year’s premiere Nissan Spirit of Africa challenge, we welcomed an impressive turnout of 300 teams. This year, we’re aiming higher with 400 teams expected to compete. As the excitement mounts, we especially look forward to the female-focused leg from June 4-6. We encourage all female drivers to embrace and conquer Africa’s most demanding offroad challenge,” added Kleinkiewicz.

Created by the legendary local racecar driver, Sarel van der Merwe, the Spirit of Africa challenge is renowned for its rigorous terrain and electrifying atmosphere. Dubbed as Africa’s “toughest 4X4 challenge,” it offers the “average” driver a chance to test their offroad skills in a competitive setting.

For those seeking a thrilling three-day adventure, which includes camping under the African stars and savoring traditional local cuisine amidst intense offroad driving, the Nissan Spirit of Africa is the perfect challenge.

The Nissan Navara, designed with the African terrain in mind, stands out as a proudly South African bakkie. It competes on a global scale, filled with innovative features designed specifically for the varied African landscape.

Known for its ruggedness and refined design, the Nissan Navara combines brute power with enhanced safety, control, and comfort for everyone onboard.

The Navara offers cutting-edge features and construction that not only ensure a pleasurable driving experience but also enhance connectivity with the surrounding world.

During the media segment of the event, several robust Nissan Navaras were available, each rigorously tested and pushed to their limits.

Navigating through challenging terrain marked by steep inclines, muddy crossings, and breathtaking descents, the Nissan Navara demonstrated its prowess, overcoming every challenge and excelling in this year’s Spirit of Africa.
