The Impi has permission to access the property it traverses during the days of the event only. Although most landowners are very co-operative, it takes just one individual to upset a landowner and to jeopardise the future of the event.
We encourage competitors and spectators to show all locals and farmers their appreciation by greeting them with courtesy during the event. Please respect all livestock, property and children. These local communities not only open their areas to us and have their farming operations disrupted. Without their support, there would be no Impi.
Let us all continue to strengthen and maintain good relationships with the race communities so that they will continue to happily welcome us to their areas.
