2020 Victoria Falls Enduro has been cancelled. We do however hope to hold a Fun-Ride, as soon as we can once the lock downs are over.

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
Usually 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 April 28th, riders take a 80km off-road trail as a sighting lap, and then the real race happens on the following day.

The event is not only about raising dust in the bush, but also features a gala evening function on the banks of the Zambezi with a three course meal, music and highlights of the event. Visitors are also free to visit the Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust, the hosts of this event, to see what it is that they do.

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.
