A "bush mall" of exhibitors would showcase Land Rover products and services.

The venue has a 4x4 track offering ascents, descents, soft sand, waterholes, axle twisters and off-camber sections, the use of which will be free to campers.

The event will include a World Wheel-Changing championship, food stalls, a kids' zone and camping facilities.

Day visitors will pay R50/adult , teenagers R25, a2 and younger free.
Main-camp sites  - R150 per adult, R80 per teenager. Field camp - R130/adult, R60/teenager.

Entry into the bush convoy R40 per vehicle.
