Coastweek -- Co-driver Teeku Patel and driver Nish Lakhani.
Rally 4 Rhinos goes carbon neutral with Wildlife Works

Coastweek -- The Rally 4 Rhinos rally team will be the first ever carbon neutral rally team to contest the East African Safari Classic Rally when driver Nish Lakhani and co-driver Teeku Patel take to the start of this years world famous event on 23 November.

The pair has pledged to offset the CO2 generated from Wildlife Works’ Kasigau Corridor REDD+ Project near Voi.

Both Nish and Teeku are directors of safari companies and fully appreciate that it is up to the current generation to pioneer new methods of conservation to protect our valuable natural habitat.

As multiple motorsport championships the pair also appreciate that motorsport can sometimes be seen as going against the grain of conservation but that the publicity generated from any rally team, especially when used to publicize conservation, can be a viable tool.

To this end the pair will once again use their Datsun SSS Classic Rally Car to publicise the amazing efforts of conservation projects around Kenya.

Nish (director of Safari World Africa); I feel truly blessed to be a child of Africa and feel that it is our responsibility to make every effort we can to preserve our natural heritage for future generations.

What the people at Wildlife Works in Voi are doing is incredible.

They have gone from protecting a small piece of land in the late 1990’s to becoming guardians of over half a million acres of rich wilderness.

They have shown the local community sustainable ways of generating income without driving away wildlife or cutting trees for charcoal burning.

This is definitely the way forward !

Teeku (director of Sokomoto Images); We have been following the work of Wildlife Works for quite a while now, especially the efforts of their gyrocopter pilots who conduct daily air patrols and this is definitely an area we would like to help raise funds and awareness of !

Nish and Teeku fulfilled their life long dreams of contesting the world famous East African Safari Classic Rally in 2015.

As debutants they endured their fair share of dramas and incidents but in true safari spirit the pair dug deep and persevered to finish a mightily impressive 26th overall, beating far more power and well-funded teams along the way.

For 2017 the car has been completely rebuilt and, using lessons learnt from the last rally, the whole team is better prepared for their second go at the Worlds Toughest Rally.
