Description

Travel Through multiple conservacancies teaming with wildlife and support the brave rangers who protect them.

This is Kenya. A land of incredible natural beauty with an unrivalled wealth of rare and unique wildlife. In the shadow of Mount Kenya, sun-baked grass lands stretch as far as the eye can see under skies miles wide; unbroken blue above can give way to towering storm clouds in no time.

You’re standing on a rocky outcrop looking out over endless plains, a single trail winds through scrub land and around waterholes before narrowing to nothing where it meets the horizon. The land below is dotted with elephants, rhino, impala, zebra, giraffe and more. Soon you’ll make your way through terrain which varies from savanna to near montane forest, sharing your safari with these beautiful and unique animals.

In this beautiful place, a war is being fought. A war between armed and organised poaching cartels and the Rangers, who stand in the way of a massacre.

The Rangers are the thin wall separating Africa’s last remaining Elephants and Rhinos from a multibillion-dollar trade in wildlife goods. Ivory and Rhino horn have reached such value that it has created a breed of poachers who are armed to the teeth and willing to risk their lives for their trade.

In partnership with Save the Rhino and For Rangers, an international group who provide equipment and welfare support to the men protecting Africa’s legacy, we bring you an opportunity to join the fight by taking on a life changing challenge in the home of long distance running.
