The 2018 TransCape

Entree Fee

In 2018 we have two entry options.


The evening function experience for our premier package of 120 riders will remain as is and you can look forward to the same world-class food, hospitality, décor, host, and highlights broadcast.

  1. LUXURY TENTED PACKAGE: R23 000 per person

The luxury tented guys will dine on their own on some evenings with a simpler dinner so that they can chill out into the evening. They will also have a dedicated MC and TV screens which will project highlights of the day’s action.
