Tusk - Ride4Rangers
Tourism is the key funder of conservation in Africa through park fees and conservation and wildlife are what the industry is built on. Since the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic there has been very little money going into the conservation system. With most holidays to Africa on hold until next year the Africa travel industry in dire straits and the trickledown effect on the ground is already being felt.
Ride 4 Rangers is an initiative that was thought up by a group of African Travel Industry friends who have teamed up with conservation charity Tusk. Hundreds of fellow Africa Travel industry professionals and conservation lovers are being invited to join in attempting to circumnavigate Africa – a distance of 30,000km - by bike, horse, walking or canoeing.
All money raised will be match-funded by Tusk meaning that Ride4Rangers can double its impact on the ground.
Anita is on the Ride4Rangers organising committee.
