Event descriptionThe Big 5 O-Week organising committee, together with the South African Orienteering Federation, invite you to South Africa’s third international five-day orienteering competition. The 5 events will take place in the country’s eastern province of Mpumalanga, with each competition area taking place on a different map. Registration and two of the five days of competition will be centred on Kaapsehoop, an old historical gold mining village famous for its wild horses that sits atop the picturesque Great Escarpment of South Africa, 30km south-west of the city of Nelspruit. The final day of competition, a sprint event, takes place in Ngodwana on Sunday morning, just a short drive from the world famous Kruger National Park, the country of Swaziland and other tourist regions.
