THE second Duzi2Sani 4x4 Expedition is back — bigger and better than its inaugural event last year.

With tourism month being in September, Msunduzi’s flagship event was yesterday announced at the Land Rover dealership in Pietermaritzburg.

An initiative between the Msunduzi Pietermaritzburg Tourism Association, African Link Tours and Kwasani Municipality, the main objective of the 4x4 expedition is to showcase what the Msunduzi and KwaSani municipalities can offer in terms of attractions.

With the expedition, which runs from Pietermaritzburg to Lesotho along the Sani Pass, being a massive success last year, local organisations predict it will further explore and niche tourism in these areas this year.

The Duzi2Sani 4x4 Expedition weekend starts on Friday, September 11.

Participants will converge at the Tourism Hub in Pietermaritzburg at midday.

Like last year, the highlights include cooking lunch using the engines of the 4x4 Land Rover vehicles and a charity event at Moretsa Forest where the members of the expedition will donate toys and have a tree planting ceremony at a local crèche.

“I have no doubt we unleashed a tiger when this was launched by the honourable mayors of Msunduzi and KwaSani municipalities last year,” Msunduzi Tourism Association director Dumisani Mhlongo said yesterday.
