Rhino Charge Event Profile

Date:- June 3rd 2011

Where:Tugen Hills

Profile:-

This unique off-road car rally is held every year to raise money for the construction of a perimeter fence around the Aberdare National Park which is a sanctuary for the endangered Black Rhino and an important water catchment area providing water to the Tana and Athi rivers, Kenya’s main rivers.

If you are visiting Kenya during this time the Rhino Charge is a must see event. The raised funds go directly to Rhino Ark, a conservation charity working to fence Kenya’s Arberdare Forest.

The Aberdares is a hidden world of wildlife; its thick vegetation provides perfect cover for countless species. The Aberdares National Park is a sanctuary for the endangered Black Rhino and an important water catchment area providing water to the Tana and Athi rivers, Kenya’s main rivers.

A variety of vehicles will aim to reach 13 checkpoints scattered over approximately 100 square kms of rough terrain in a 10 hour period via the shortest distance possible. Competitors are supplied with a 1:50,000 scale map of the venue, co-ordinates of the 13 Control Points and their Start position.

The rally teams decide between taking a safer, wider route or taking a riskier more direct route. The teams must then plot the control points on the map and choose their route. The winner is the competitor who visits all controls in the shortest distance, GPS measured.
