News from Bushtracks Africa: The Elephant Charge


The Elephant Charge

Bushtracks Africa remains committed to its social responsibility and the upliftment of Zambia. We are very excited to announce that we will be participating in the Elephant Charge over the weekend of the 02 to the 04th of October 2015. The team comprises of Chris Tett (Managing Director), Adrian Tett (General Manager) Craig Evans, Victoria Evans, Des Hitchins and Mark Jarvis.
The Elephant Charge challenges teams of cars and motorbikes to complete a gruelling course through the Zambian bush. The event is held at a different location each year over Zambia's Independence weekend in late October. The winning team is the one that completes a course of ten checkpoints in the shortest distance possible. Each team must find their own route between the checkpoints through valleys, over ridges and up escarpments in a trial of driving, navigating and endurance. The Elephant Charge raises money for 12 beneficiaries located all over Zambia. It is up to the teams to donate a pledge a minimum of k4000, to the Elephant Charge and the committee distributes the monies accordingly to the beneficiaries that have applied for funding. More information on last year's course and beneficiaries can be found on their website:
The vehicle that Bushtracks Africa has entered is its first Game viewing vehicle 'the warthog' we purchased second hand in 1997 modified specifically for this race.
