The most daring team will complete all of the check-points in the shortest distance, winch up cliffs and down ravines to claim the much prized trophy. The event demands stamina and navigational skills as well as the ultimate team tactics.

But it’s not just for the rush that these eager “Elephant Chargers” do it. It’s for the wildlife too. Organised by a committee of dedicated volunteers, in 2012 the Elephant Charge raised over US$80,000 for conservation charities in Zambia, mainly promoting environmental education in local communities.

With one of the highest deforestation rates in the world and poaching a constant threat, environmental education in Zambia is vital.
