Entertainment galore for Desert Race goers


Besides the roaring sounds from big engines of competing vans and bikes, those travelling to Jwaneng and surrounding areas for this year’s Toyota 1000 Desert Race are guaranteed two days of unlimited entertainment.

Facilities at the camp site include fixed braai/picnic areas, Terrace bar and restaurant at P250 per person per night. However, the fee does not include tent provision. DJ Ngwazi has also been lined up to perform at the People’s Festival billed to take place at Jwaneng Town Council Stadium tomorrow.
