Story

Petra Somen Sabine Kontos Emma Morton Catherine Coulson Eppie Morton and Sophia Coulson

We are the Bushbabes, an all-ladies teams that take on the Rhino Charge challenge. We are passionate about this cause, and have given it our all, year after year since 2010, both in the challenge itself and in the raising of funds.

Rhino Ark raises money for the building of electric eco-fences around mountain ecosystems in Kenya, namely Aberdare National Park, Mt. Kenya and Mau Eburu . This provides an "ark" for wildlife such as rhino, leopard, elephant and mountain bongo but also safeguards vital upland watertable habitats for Kenya.

Not for the faint-hearted, the event requires our team of six ladies aged from 17 to 54 to take our seriously strong Range Rover to a different part of the country every year. 13 check points are scattered over approximately 100 km² of beautiful but extremely tough Kenyan terrain, and we have to reach them all within a 10-hour period
