Camel Trophy 1989 – Amazon is a fascinating hour-long documentary about one of the hardest Camel Trophy events of them all – the 1989 Amazon expedition. The Amazonian rainforest is one of the most challenging environments on earth to travel through, made all the more difficult by illegal loggers, cagey gold miners, and the native wildlife which is almost all deadly in one way or another.
The Camel Trophy was held annually between 1980 and 2000, until cigarette sponsorship became illegal in many countries. There have been rumors and plans in recent years about a revival of the Trophy – the primary caveat being the need for a sponsor. Many of the original Land Rovers were left in the country of the event, those that were shipped back to the UK were highly sought after by collectors however they were in unsurprisingly rough condition.
