Expedition Africa becomes and Associate Member of the SAOF The SAOF is pleased to announce that Expedition Africa has been granted Associate Member status of the South African Orienteering Federation (SAOF).
On 24 November 2022, the SAOF received an application from Expedition Africa to become an Associate Member of the SAOF. After due consideration the SAOF’s Management Committee approved Expedition Africa’s application.
There is synergy between the sports of Orienteering and Adventure Racing since both rely heavily on navigation with map and compass. We believe this affiliation will benefit both sports and is aligned with the aim of the SAOF, which is to promote orienteering in South Africa.
