Our conservation work:

We are committed to protecting the communities, wildlife, and environment that we ride in. The conservancy fees that are charged to the clients are used to support the conservancy areas in which we ride, which sustain the wildlife and communities that live in these areas. We are also in a position to raise money for funding special projects. In our HQ at the Soysambu Conservancy, we have facilitated de-snaring projects. Snares are a major threat to wildlife populations through poaching and these projects that we support are critical to protecting their wildlife populations.

In the past, we have raised money to support the world-renowned David Sheldrick Trust which is known for its rescue and rehabilitation programs for orphaned elephants.

We have also held fundraisers to build predator-proof "bomas", which are designed to reduce livestock and wildlife conflict and, as they are designed to be mobile, they are great for sustainable rangelands management and enhancing grass production.

Our crew equally volunteers at the Mugie Triathlon for route opening and closing as a safety precaution to protect both the wildlife and the competitors. They ensure that there are no buffalo or elephants on the routes during the competition. This also helps raise money for a mobile community clinic serving the Western side of Laikipia.
