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.
