WHAT IS ELEPHANT EPIC?

The Elephant Epic is an annual mountain bike race from Lusaka to the Lower Zambezi, which aims to raise funds for wildlife conservation. The race has been running for six years and is a highly popular and anticipated event.

The race follows a rugged and beautiful route from Lusaka to the Lower Zambezi down the escarpment, covering a distance of approximately 75 km. The route is long enough to be a challenge, yet short enough to attract riders of wide ranging abilities. The race is showcases the remote and beautiful Zambian scenery, and a rare opportunity for the participants to travel on roads otherwise only accessible with a 4×4.

The race starts at Leopards Hill Rd, where the riders are treated to breakfast before beginning the race. Upon arrival at the Finish at Kiambi Lodge in the Lower Zambezi, there is a prize giving ceremony and riders enjoy a delicious, supper, drinks and well-deserved rest and relaxation together. Most riders choose to stay over night where we have organized discounted accommodation.

  1. To all the great people who make this epic event a possibility…thank you so much from all of us at Game Rangers International. The support you gave us last year was gladly received by the Elephant Orphanage Project. This year we are already experiencing an upsurge in poaching and so unfortunately we are expecting more orphan call-outs (rescues!). In the meantime we are continuing our anti-poaching effort in the greater Kafue National Park with the establishment of a Special Anti-Poaching Unit (SAPU). This month we have already confiscated 5 lengths of ivory and the two Rapid Delpoyment Teams, which make up the Unit are currently out on patrol, in poaching ‘hotspots’. In addition Kate Brill and her team are out conducting education awareness in more than 20 schools, about the importance and value of wildlife conservation. None of this would be possible without your support and that of the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation. Thank you to you all. Yours sincerely, Sport Beattie.
