    The primary objective of the Celebrity Drive campaign is to highlight South Africa’s stunning landscapes, reminding both locals and international tourists of the country’s status as a top travel destination. Additionally, the campaign aims to make a significant societal impact by raising funds for various organizations, including orphanages and gender-based organizations, with beneficiaries rotating annually as the event grows.
