The Mission

“To create world-class sporting events that expose local and overseas athletes to the unspoiled beauty of our country, whilst making a real, lasting contribution to the Socioeconomic upliftment of the areas that host the events.”

The Dryland Experience

The Dryland Team welcomes you to this  showcase of our events, each one born from a strong vision and nurtured by a passionate team.

We would like to give you a taste of each event, and the elements we believe contribute to their success, as Dryland continues to set the bar for Sporting event organisation, globally.

The Secret

The magic lies in the unique combination of ingredients, balanced to perfection by world-class event organisers. Take the breathtaking routes, legendary vibe and passionate people; mix them together under a shimmering Karoo sun, and the result is a stable of events that have achieved near legendary status.
