100 MILES FOR ELEPHANTS
Join Hidden Places Travel and Elephant Earth Initiative For a Life-Changing Fundraising Trek To Save Elephants
National Geographic Traveler selected 100 Miles for Elephants as one of their ‘50 Tours of a Lifetime: 2013’s most authentic, most innovative, most immersive, best–guided, and most sustainable tours’.
ABOUT THE TREK: This 9–day trek will be an extraordinary expedition in support of a critical cause: fighting the elephant poaching crisis in Kenya. Every day, approximately 100 African elephants are being killed for their ivory – if the slaughter continues at this rate they will be close to extinction in 10 years. Kenya’s Laikipia ecosystem hosts one of East Africa’s largest free-ranging elephant populations and these majestic animals are increasingly the targets of poachers. But there is hope – local communities are desperately trying to protect the elephants, and we can help them!
LOCAL IMPACT: Funds raised on the 100 Miles for Elephants trek will provide wages, equipment and training for vitally needed anti-poaching scout teams in Laikipia. This once–in–a–lifetime adventure is a unique opportunity to connect with local people who share your love of elephants, and to do something extraordinary and meaningful in this diverse, vibrant and captivating part of the world.
HOW YOUR TREK WILL SAVE ELEPHANTS: When you join this trip you will be asked to “go the extra mile” for elephants by launching your own fundraising and awareness campaign. 100% of donations will go to Space for Giants for training, equipment and salaries for community anti-poaching scouts, the crucial and unsung heroes in the battle to protect elephants from poachers. You will be provided with a how-to kit and simple tools and ideas to raise funds. Learn more here.
DATES 2014: February & September *Space is limited to 14 participants per trip. See trip details and reserve your space here.
