The Challenge Events
A charity motorcycle event that’s different.
There are all sorts of creative fundraising ideas out there, so why not do something completely new in 2022 /23. You’re perhaps bored of sponsored walks and tired of coffee mornings, which are the usual kind of events that fundraisers take part in. Why not take part in The Kruger 100 Charity Challenge instead. Help the organisations close to our heart and get sponsored to take part in an amazing trip around Britain and across Europe, like never before. Make your trip into one of the best charity adventures you have ever done!
Usually when someone asks for sponsorship, they’re doing some kind of run or walk etc., which is great, but when you tell people you’re taking part in visiting 100 zoos across Europe on a motorbike the response is most likely going to be – “you’re mad”. Although it’s not compulsory to take part in all the different legs, it’s great to see that well over a third of the enquiries already want to have a go at the whole thing.
It is all about raising funds for our cause. Adding to the trip is your own challenge of raising a target donation of £250 which is the only caviat to joining and will go towards our ultimate fundraising goal. Obviously there is no upper limit and the most amounts individually raised will take away some great prizes (it's good healthy competion)
'No Good Deed Goes Un-Rewarded' so our aim is celebrate your commitment and efforts to the challenge by way of some awesome packages and prizes (which we couldn't do without the amazing support of our sponsors bringing us an astounding assortment of prizes for our top fundraisers).
You can raise the money either in the good old-fashioned way, by just asking friends, family etc.or you could use your bike to its full potential. Get businesses to sponsor you in return for you putting their company name out there on your panniers etc. Lots of people will see it on this epic journey so it’s fantastic publicity for the companies sponsoring you!
Once your registered we advise you how to set up your own personal fundraising campaign.
We know that this should be all about having fun, but we do need a few rules!
This cannot be emphasised enough, so here it is at the top of the list. THIS IS NOT A RACE! All participants are advised to ride safely and at all times obey the rules and regulations for the country you are in. It is up to you to ensure that you are fully up to date with the driving requirements for the country in question. Some countries require you to carry certain equipment. We will provide you with a driving guide prior to commencement of each event; however, this may not be an exhaustive list. Extra care is needed when driving in Europe. Not all drivers adhere to the good practices we experience in the UK.
Insurance and M.O.T.
The bike must be in a roadworthy condition and must have a valid M.O.T certificate. It is up to you ensure that your bike is fit for the run. All riders must be covered by their own insurance (incl Europe if participating in these legs).
Driving License & Passport:
All riders from the UK must have a valid UK driving license and insurance (on a road legal motorcycle). Any event entrant must also have a valid passport for travelling between countries (mainly for leaving and re-entering the UK).
Motorcycles may break down or you may collect a puncture (invariably they always break down when you least expect it) so we will have a support vehicle and trailer to assist where possible, but please be aware that any costs incurred will be the rider’s own responsibility and it may be decided to bring in an outside assistance if problem to great for our team to rectify.

IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ IF YOU HAVE ANY SLEEPING CONCERNS AS WE Will MOST LIKELY BE SHARING ROOMS TO KEEP COSTS DOWN: In some countries a 3 person room compromises of a single bed (sometimes in the form of a guest or a foldout bed) and a large double bed with either a one piece or 2 piece mattress that can be separated in some instances (BUT NOT ALL). A triple room means a large double bed with a single bunk above. Any participant not comfortable with this arrangement or bed configuration can pay for an extra room.The cost of a single room will be around £90 per night. If you would prefer this arrangement, please mention it in the comments box (only a small number of single rooms are available).
In the event that you do sadly need to cancel, your momey will be refunded less the initial £50 non-refundable deposit and any costs incurred that would deem us out of pocket due to this.We would accept a substition to take your place at no additioanl cost

The Ultimate South African Motorcycle Challenge 2026
Get ready to have your breath taken away as we explore South Africa on a motorbike culminating at The Kruger National Park for the anniversary of its 100th year since officially opening to the public.
This will be a once in a lifetime experience and will be one heck of a ride.This will be the ultimate adventure expedition for riders who are in great shape and have strong off-road riding skills. Another important requirement will be mental strength and the resilience to overcome setbacks.
My Kruger Bush Walk Challenge
I am planning to walk the length of Kruger National Park, one of the last remaining wilderness areas in Africa, following in the footsteps of people who possibly lived, roamed and survived 33,000 years ago......
