Charity Event


This event is aligned with the “E-Race Extinction Global Event”, a global movement to support wildlife conservation through awareness and funds generation, spearheaded by GRI Partner and US charity, ‘Stop Poaching Now’.​All funds raised through the Elephant WALK-RIDE-RUN will support wildlife conservation in Zambia through Game Rangers International. 


At the GRI-Wildlife Discovery Centre we are able to provide focused, immersive and impactful conservation education to a wide audience, highlighting the vulnerability of wildlife in Zambia and fostering a love and respect for nature, targeting our future generation for long term impact.


All funds raised through this event will ensure we can continue to reach Lusaka’s lowest income schools and provide them with ‘Discovery Day’ (full day) experiences at the Centre. ​

Our sponsors

Thank you to the sponsors who support our Walk Ride Run in Zambia.  Without their generosity the event would not be possible.  You are all conservation champions.
