Namibian rugby legend Jacques Burger to climb Mt Kenya for elephants

The rugby players, which includes Mike Ellery, Rhys Gill, Jim Hamilton, Nils Mordt and Ben Ransom; will aim to hike 50km over 4 days, ascending 2,285M to 4,985M on Mt Kenya, coping with high altitude and carrying all their equipment, and finally at the summit they will play the first game of rugby at the peak  to raise money for the protection of elephants.

The charity challenge which is in association with Space for Giants and Saracens Rugby Club will raise funds to support Space for Giants’ critical elephant protection work.

Space for Giants builds and maintains effective frontline anti-poaching capacity; and works to increase penalties and successful prosecutions for wildlife crimes.
