Every year The Atlas Foundation, founded by Jason Leonard OBE, hosts an annual challenge tour. The tour sends a team of ‘volunteers’, who fundraise a substantial amount of £10 000 each for this exceptional foundation, to join Jason on a unique expedition focused on assisting with education in impoverished communities around the globe – all through rugby.
This year, Old School Tours planned the perfect adventure. The Atlas Team traveled around rural Zimbabwe and Botswana, covering approximately 720km of rugged terrain in a couple of days. Land Rover made sure the group travelled in the ultimate comfort, providing 5 top of the range Land Rovers for Jason to lead out the tour across the region.
In the good company of high profile businessmen and friends, along with rugby legends Bob Skinstad, Shane Byrne, Joe Pietersen and Peter Rogers, the Atlas Team took to the roads and experienced a road trip tour like no other.
