It’s hard to believe that 25 years ago Rhino Charge only raised Sh200,000.  Many off-roading challenges later, Rhino Charge 2014 marks another record-breaking year raising Sh102,919,334.93 for conservation in Kenya.

Rhino Charge is known for being one of the most challenging off-roading experiences set in the unforgiving terrain of the Kenyan bush.  The 2014 edition of Rhino Charge was situated in the Kalama Community Conservancy where the terrain was extremely rocky with pockets of thick bush.

Out of 65 teams, car number 5, led by Alan McKittrick completed the course in the shortest distance of 31.34km, capturing 1st place and was the overall winner of the 2014 Rhino Charge. Car number 22 led by Gray Cullen finished second, whilst Jamie Manuel and Brandon Barbour’s car number 53 took home third place.

Rhino Charge was founded in 1989 and is an annual event held in Kenya.  All of the funds raised go to the Rhino Ark, a charitable trust founded in 1988 to support conservation in Kenya.
