The Rallytravels tour to the Safari Rally will take place from 19 to 26 of June 2026 in Nairobi and Navisha Lake area. This is the third time Rallytravels have organized the journey to the rally in Kenya. The first time, 2013, still as a Historic Safari Rally.

Kenya / Nairobi:
Nairobi is the capital city of Kenya, with over 3 million inhabitants. The weather is about 23 degrees in June, and it is outside the rainy season.

2002 was the last year the rally was held in the WRC. In 2019, the rally was observed and then the FIA recorded the event in the WRC calendar 2020. The difference with the "old" safari rally is that the stages and kilometers of the stages and safety are adapted to the format of today's WRC events. After a succesful premier in 2021 and 2022 (2020 was cancelled due COVID19) the rally will take place for the 3rd time in the new format. We will visit the shakedown, where the teams test their rally cars before the rally. As well as 6 - 9 special stages while the rally. All stages are on gravel.
