NAIBOR CAMP SPONSORS’ RHINO CHARGE ONCE AGAIN
Every year there is an annual off-road motorsport competition held in Kenya. The Rhino Charge event entrants are required to visit 13 guard posts scattered over approximately 100 km2 rough terrains within a 10 hour period. The most exciting part of this event is that the entrants are supplied with a 1:50,000 scale map of the venue, coordinates of the 13 guard posts and their start position the night before the event.
This event’s main aim is to raise funds in support of the Rhino Ark Charitable Trust activities, an NGO that works towards the conservation and protections of Kenya’s mountain range ecosystems “The Water Towers”.
The Trust was committed to saving the dwindling rhino population in Aberdare National Park, while mitigating human-wildlife conflicts around the park. In 1989 on the 4th of February, 31 competing cars entered the first Rhino Charge event which was won by Travers Allison in a Suzuki jeep. The very first Rhino Charge raised 250,000 shillings which has increased over the years to reach 108 million shillings in the 2015 event.
As it has been over the years Naibor Camp is once again proud to be a raffle sponsor, donating a two night stay for two at our camp. If you are wondering how to participate in the raffle, all you need to do is to choose a team and sponsor them with a minimum amount of Ksh. 2,000 or equivalent. For every Ksh. 2,000 you donate you receive one raffle ticket. Not only are you in with a chance of winning one of the great prizes available, including a stay at Naibor, but also you will be supporting a great cause.
