Wildlife Ranger Challenge 2023

Ahead of World Ranger Day on Monday 31st July 2023, more than 100 teams of rangers across Africa are gearing up for the fourth annual Wildlife Ranger Challenge. Coordinated by  Tusk and the Game Rangers Association of Africa, the multi-million fundraising initiative features a series of fitness challenges and culminates with a 21km half-marathon race on 16th September 2023.

This year, Game Rangers International will, once again, take part in the Wildlife Ranger Challenge.  Our team of Rangers will train for and participate in the Ranger Quiz, Push-Up Challenge, Sit-Up Challenge and 21km Race carrying 22kgs of kit.  As part of our annual event, the Elephant EPIC, we are inviting you to challenge our Rangers.  Can you beat them, can you train like a Ranger?

Join the Herd today and sign up to take part in one or all of the physical challenges and raise vital funds for Wildlife Rangers around the world.
