Prince William, is the Royal Patron of Tusk Trust, a UK-based charity of African conservation specialists that use a holistic approach toward conservation. Tusk Trust will send a team of cyclists (Cycle of Life team) to Africa to cycle from Namibia to northern Kenya to visit the work of some of the best community conservation projects in rural Africa and raise funds which will go to the Tusk Trust for distribution.
Here is the schedule
Month 1 – The team bicycle from the big-cat conservation centre, Africat, in the north of Namibia across the Kalahari Desert, into Botswana and then head south.
Month 2 – They get involved in the local football scene in Zambia, finding that football is very much a way of life for many African people.
Month 3 – Cycling north through Zambia, Malawi and Tanzania and staying in very remote villages. This is likely to be the most gruelling stage of their journey.
Month 4 – Exploring the incredible wildlife in Kenya, plus the final celebration of arriving at Lewa Conservancy promises to be an emotional end to the trip.
