Preview: Rhino Rally
7-9 September 2018
The famous Rhino Rally is taking place again this September 7-9, and as we reported previously has moved from Parys to the Hartbeespoort Holiday Resort, the same site that hosts the Impala Rally, Pretoria Toy Run, Blikkiesfees, Om Die Dam running race and thousands of holidaymakers throughout the year. It boasts 20 hectares of trees, green grass, camping area, chalets, four pools, two big slides, a Skylounge sundowner bar, a built-in stage, a restaurant and a newly-retarred road outside it.
The rally, dubbed “The Revived Rhino” will feature various popular food stall, a flea market, a host of entertainment and a new line-up of bands. Among the seven bands are Afrikaans ones like Andre “Die Heupe” Van Der Rheede, DZL (pronounced “diesel”) and Heuning.
The popular Andre is alive and energetic, interacts well with the audience, has many dedicated biker fans and will do three appearances at the Rhino.
“DZL are known as South Africa’s sexiest boy band and we sure can’t argue,” wrote Getit magazine. The culprits are Andries Hendrik Potgieter and Wiaan Fourie, both professional models as well as singers, together since 2014.
The Heuning duo do “Tipiese Afrikaans musiek met ‘n nuwe country klank wat jong mense ook sal geniet,” said Jeanette, the beautiful blonde lead singer. They also do rock and covers in English and Afrikaans.
And, naturally, Rally music legends like Clint & Co, Black Water and Backbone will be there.
An interesting feature of the rally will be the “Voortrekker Braai” on Tuesday evening 4th September for those who are making use of the free stay at the resort up to rally’s Friday 7th September, to get to know each other.
Entrance is R250 per person with the fee being reduce on Saturday to R150 per person. Cars will be R200 per vehicle. See the link to the entry form below – please download it, print it and send it to the contact details on the form.
