Fact is... the rule of law in Africa is generally lacking… in abundance… everywhere. So for your average highly strung 21st century city dweller this event should be music to your ears.
The Put Foot Rally is your chance to break free! To live the 18 days without worry, it is an opportunity to forget work and surround yourself with fun, friendly epic people and to live life to the full! All we ask, is that you abide by our event rules:
“THE PUT FOOT RALLY CODE OF CONDUCT"
- To prove that you can use any vehicle to travel across Southern Africa!
- To prove that travel across Southern Africa is Easy, Safe, Fun and Affordable!
- Giving back through awesome direct, hands-on charity work: gifting young underprivileged children with brand new school shoes, and raising funds for wildlife conservation.
HOW TO KEEP THE GOOD TIMES ROLLING:
- Participate in the spirit of the event at all times.
- Respect your fellow participants.

GAME CHANGERS – ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY:

AND TWO VERY IMPORTANT POLICIES:
THE 'ME, MYSELF, I AND ME' POLICY
This means that you, your crew, your wheels, your everything... are planning, operating and taking part under your own auspices from start line to finish line. i.e. you are definitely on your own / op jou eis – and therefore you cannot sue us for everything we own, including our biltong, beer, hot chicks, and samoosas etc… if it all goes wrong! Look after yourself, and be lekker. Always.
THE 'YOU ARE NOT AT THE TOP OF THE FOOD CHAIN' POLICY
Let’s be absolutely clear: In Africa the lion is given the title "King of the Animal Kingdom" for a really, really good reason. When in a National Park: If you feel the urge to open your window or even, a need to get out of your vehicle to take a nice close up picture of the big pussy cat... You will, 110%, be on a hiding second-to-nothing, and you will most likely suffer a horrific, very painful and agonizing entry into the next life.
Please do not make paperwork for us... Just remember it is a criminal offence if you get out your vehicle in a national park, and we will NOT bail you out from jail... where very bad things happen... very very bad things.
