Travels to my Elephant 2017

India, 2017

Travels to my Elephant returns!

On October 30th, a fleet of 50 Gujarati Chagda bikes will parade 800km across Rajasthan to 101 brightly painted elephant sculptures, all in aid of their endangered wild cousins.

Inspired by one of the world’s most charismatic adventurers, the late and very great Mark Shand, and the amazing rickshaw race in his honour in 2015, this event continues a remarkable journey in conservation.

Travels to my Elephant seeks modern day adventurers with an appetite for the extraordinary. Each team of three will be part of a crew that aims to raise £1m for  the magnificent Asian elephant.
