Chui Safari Lodge managers Geoff Mayes and Suzanne Zwager will use the forthcoming KCB Safari Rally to raise funds for the highly successful “Hands off our Elephants” social awareness programme.

The pair who race a Maxxis Tyres supported Landrover Tomcat V8, will run a raffle for the month of June, with the grand prize being a trip to the world famous Maasai Mara.

The “Hands off our Elephants” is a social media initiative from Wildlife Direct which aims at raising awareness for the plight of Africas’ elephants through various methods, from wildlife programmes aimed at children to alert people globally to the human/ wildlife conflicts that people face daily in wilderness areas.

The raffle, which is limited to only 100 tickets, also includes prizes such as a night for two at Chui Safari Lodge in Naivasha, a night at The Trademark in Nairobi, wine hampers, products from Maxxis Tyres and other smaller prizes.

The grand prize is an amazing trip, beginning with a night at the Sarova Stanley in Nairobi, half-price flights on Safarilink to the Maasai Mara and two nights in the Sarova Spirit of the Maasai Mara. All drinks and activities are included and only conservation fees need to be paid!

With less than a month to go until the prestigious Safari Rally is flagged off in Nairobi, Geoff and Suzanne and their Maxxis Tyres Tomcat, with support from Silver spread Meru and Precision Hydration, are at an advanced stage of preparations.
