The Event
This fundraising event is hosted by the Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust (VFWT), an organisation involved in the caring and rehabilitation of orphaned elephants in Victoria Falls. They also participate in community outreach and conservation training. The event which started in 2013 is a fundraising event aimed to raise money for these efforts.

In the past, the event has had participation from the Dakar Rally entrant Dave Reeve of Zambia.

The Route
Starting from Gorges Lodge (20kms from Victoria Falls) the race takes motorcycle and quad bike riders along the Batoka Gorge and into the Hwange communal lands. The terrain along the way offers both novice and experienced riders plenty of challenging riding. The race is a two day challenge. On May 1st, riders take a 110km off-road trail, and then a 150km trail on the next day.

Highlights
The event is not only about raising dust in the bush, but also features a dinner at the Gorges Lodge and a sunset cruise on the luxurious Zambezi Explorer with live entertainment and a river-side dinner. Visitors are also free to visit the Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust, the hosts of this event, to see what it is that they do.

Proceeds
All of the money raised through this event is given to the VFWT and the Victoria Falls Anti-Poaching Unit (VFAPU). The anti-poaching unit is is a team of individuals committed to the conservation of Victoria Falls wildlife, both flora and fauna, and is fundamental in keeping the area safe and sustainable. VFAPU relies on donations from other organisations, the public and events such as this one.
