RIDE FOR RHINOS 2025
Dates: 25 January – 02 February 2025
Cost: ZAR50 000 + minimum of £1000 in sponsorship for charity
Donation: Full donation to Waterberg Rhino UK
Ride for Rhinos encompasses 250km of riding in the beautiful Waterberg landscape, and sees you galloping over the veld, swimming with your horse, clambering up steep kloofs, crossing the Palala river while viewing rhino, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, kudu and hopefully elephant and lion from the back of a horse. To take part, you need to be a fit and experienced rider and capable of spending 7 days and 6-7 hours a day in the saddle. On leaving Ant’s Nest, you will ride through neighbouring game reserves staying at different lodges on route. Long hot days in the saddle will be interspersed with braai lunches and a chance to relax in the shade. On reaching our destination each evening we can cool off in the pool and dine under the stars.
The aim of this conservation-based horse ride is to raise funds for Waterberg Rhino UK to help in the protection of the rhino population and to support local community projects that bring opportunity and prosperity to the people of the Waterberg.
By taking part each rider commits to raising a minimum of £1,000 in sponsorship for the charity. Places on the ride are limited so please sign up early to avoid disappointment – There is often a waitlist for this event and interested riders will have 10 days to confirm their spots.
