Travels to my Elephant

In partnership with Quintessentially Foundation, Travels to my Elephant pays homage to Elephant Family’s founding force, the late and very great Mark Shand. Each journey is imbued with Mark’s spirit of adventure and life-long love of India.  Intrepid racers embark on a life-affirming, tuk-tuk propelled odyssey across rural India and have so far raised over £2m for conservation. 

Launched by Elephant Family Patron Goldie Hawn in summer 2015, Travels to my Elephant adventures have so far travelled the breadth of Madhya Pradesh to meet Mark’s rescued elephant Tara in 2015, and migrated from Jodhpur to Jaipur aboard Gujarati Chagdas, Royal Enfield motorbikes and vintage jeeps in 2017.

In 2022 Travels to my Elephant returns!
