Congratulations to our Southern Africa team who took part in Elephant Charge 2013, let's see how they got on...

The Elephant Charge challenges teams of cars and motorbikes to complete a gruelling course through the Zambian bush. The event is held at a different location each year over Zambia's Independence weekend in late October.

The winning team is the one that completes a course of nine checkpoints in the shortest distance possible. Each team must find their own route between the checkpoints through valleys, over ridges and up escarpments in a trial of driving, navigating and endurance.

This year only 4 out of the 23 teams completed all checkpoints; our team managed to complete all but one. Overall the Sanctuary team came 5th, and considering we had the smallest car we think a big congratulations is in order for the boys!
