Project goal – What exactly did we do?

In short we, as the #StandUp4Rhino team, did the first SUP descent of the Zambezi River below Victoria Falls, to raise much needed funding for our chosen beneficiary. We completed the first ever descent of the rapids of the Zambezi River in the Batoka Gorge on stand-up paddleboards (SUPs). Our next target is to raise $10,000 for Care for Wild rhino orphanage.

Project motivation – Why did we do this?

At the end of the day, we could just do it for the bragging rights, but we all feel strongly that it would be much more meaningful if it were to translate into REAL benefits for a deserving cause, and there are few causes more deserving than the organisation we have chosen.

Project beneficiary – Who do we want to benefit from this?

Simply put, we want our efforts to benefit rhinos! But more specifically, Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary NPC – an orphanage and sanctuary for rhino orphans resulting from the on-going rhino poaching scourge that is decimating rhino populations in Southern Africa. We hope that through the publicity generated by the #StandUp4Rhino campaign, that a much broader awareness will be created and that this will have a knock on effect and ultimately benefit the general rhino population of southern Africa.



Presenting sponsor – An opportunity exists for a corporate or individual to assume the title of “presenting sponsor” for the project. The presenting sponsor will cover the basic costs of the project (mainly the editing costs of the documentary) and will benefit from exposure on the crowd funding platform, all project video teasers and productions and all social media posts and other feature articles.


Project Beneficiary:

Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary NPC operates from a remote farm location in the heartland of Mpumalanga, South Africa.  The exact location is kept confidential for security reasons – after all, we are in the middle of a Rhino War.
