 Elephant Charge

The Elephant Charge is an annual event which challenges teams of cars and motorbikes to complete a gruelling course through the Zambian bush. The Charge is held to raise money for conservation in Zambia, focussed on conservation through education, and in the ten years since it began, the event has raised over $892,000 which has been distributed to conservation organisations working across the country.

The Charge

On the day of the Charge, the winning team is the one that completes a course of ten checkpoints in the shortest distance possible within the allowed 8 hours. Given only a map and with skill and determination.

Our Mission

Taking part in Fuchs Elephant Charge is a commitment to various conservation efforts throughout Zambia. For Bushtracks it is not about the day, but rather the process leading up to it. Raising not only funds but awareness.

The teams that enter the Elephant Charge make a pledge to the conservation charities and every single dollar that the teams raise is passed directly to the Zambian beneficiary charities as grants.
