Elephant Charge ready for the off

2nd Oct 2012

This month will see the Elephant Charge motor sport event held in the Zambian bush in a bid to raise cash for conservation and wildlife organisations.

The team event tests the competitors' driving and navigational competence in either cars or on motorbikes and offers a chance for participants and their families to experience the fun and wonder of the Zambian outback.

Zambia's Independence weekend is always chosen as the date for the competition, late in October.

The event tests driving, navigation and endurance skills and the winning team must complete nine checkpoints in the shortest distance by finding their own route over differing terrain.

Last year's event raised ZMK425,000,000 (83,513 US dollars) to help with Zambia's conservation - nine education and conservation organisations benefited throughout the country.

The 2010 competition raised ZMK330,000,000 for South Luangwa Conservation Society, the Lusaka National Park and Conservation Lower Zambezi.
