My dream is to unite south Africans in supporting #MyDARINGADVENTURE as I hope to become one of the elite few to cross the finish line at The Dakar Rally.

Dakar is more than just a race, it’s a test of the limits of the human spirit. Showing that anything is possible if you work hard and put your mind to it.

Buy Merch or Enter the Raffle

I will be selling My Daring Adventure supporters’ t-shirts, caps and jackets to get as many people involved in the journey to help raise funds.

I also plan to introduce two fundraisers, where I will raffle some goodies including a rally bike. Join me in this adventure by showing your support.


Sign & Ride

I will be having a Sign & Ride supporters’ spot on my racing bike that will be the home of all the signatures that are supporting my journey to the 2020 Dakar.

Be a part of history!

Donate, sign and submit your signature to be added to the body of my bike and taken to the heart of the Dakar rally!

Having spent many days riding/racing with Donovan, one can only be inspired by him. He is a Fearless, Daring, Bold, Confident, Adventurous, courageous…..a man with Balls! I cannot wait to see him on the starting line of the 2018 Dakar and to be there in Spirit the day when he will cross that finish line!… Read more “My Amageza Malle Moto Brother!”

I experience the driven will of Donovan to compete and to make a success of every challenge he may face. Work hard – Play hard and Never say Never all the way to the end!

Wynand du Plessis
Colleague & friend

To compete and complete the Dakar is not just a physical challenge but also a mental challenge. I would say it is 40% physical and 60% mental. Donovan’s attitude is right towards this giant challenge and I’m confident to write the newsflash now that Donovan will fulfill his dream. My advice (which worked for me)… Read more “Donovan will fulfill his dream”

Tough as nails. Always at the end. What makes Donavan stand out to me is his ability to make a plan and adapt to the challenge. His bike broke down 1 morning on the start line in Khang Botswana, Amegeza 2015. Donavan striped the whole bike found problem and finished the night. Long before a… Read more “Tough as Nails”

Having raced with Donovan over the past few years I have been fortunate to witness him overcome many challenges. From a wire strung across a riverbed in 2013 that nearly took his head off to racing through the night in 2015 when in Botswana, many riders got lost after an unclear section on the road… Read more “A rider every South African could be proud of”

First met Donovan at the Amageza in 2015, it was my first rally, I was having a tough time around day 4/5 and when I met him he was all smiles and happiness, then my team mates told me he was running “Malle Moto” and I had a new-found respect for a guy that could… Read more “Commits to Everything He Does”

Donovan completed each stage of all 5 races with no medical injuries or mechanical failures. He balances speed and navigation, while managing his machine successfully. I have no doubt that Donovan will overcome every challenge, complete any and every race, and be a great ambassador for the sport.

Alexander Nel
Amageza Director

Donovan – your courage is inspiring. Best of luck on your adventure. If you can dream it, you can do it!

Johanna van de Langenberg

My first introduction to Donovan van de Langenberg was in 2007  on a construction project in Claremont Cape Town whilst he was working for LJ le Roux Industries in the capacity as a project manager.  This specific project was immensely challenging from both a technical, operational, budget and program perspective. All the odds were against… Read more “His Commitment is Unquestionable”
