About Elephant Charge

The Elephant Charge challenges teams of cars and motorbikes to complete a grueling 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.
