About The Team:

Brad: With a deep-set love of the outdoors and making moments count in all aspects of life, nothing makes me happier than taking in sunrises and sunsets. I can often be found either running, surfing or playing sports somewhere in Cape Town. As a keen birder, qualified falconer and having grown up a stone's throw from the bush throughout my childhood have led to a deep personal connection to nature and birds and taking steps to conserve it. I am driven by creativity and turning crazy ideas into real-life actions. The Rhino Peak Challenge is the daunting realisation of this habit!

Stuart: Descending from a mix of Zimbabwean and South African farming stock I grew up on a farm in Villiersdorp, and naturally developed a love for nature and the outdoors. My affinity with sport led me to study at Stellenbosch University where I by some miracle managed to leave with a BA Social Dynamics and Honors in Politics and International Relations. I was fortunate enough to be exposed to travel from a young age, which sparked a passion and appreciation for Africa and its most valuable resource – its wildlife and wilderness areas. This passion alongside my experience in e-commerce led me to Rhino Africa, where I am fortunate enough to participate in events such as the RPC. In my spare time to stay sane I love spending as much time in Cape Town’s backyard, whether it be trail running on the many Table Mountain tracks, or spending time in the ocean.

Reason for taking Challenge:

Brad: The Drakensberg is a place that I have been intrinsically connected to throughout my life, taking on the Rhino Peak Challenge represents a way to push myself whilst making a contribution to the preservation of the Bearded Vultures that call his special place home. Combining the opportunity to participate in this exclusive event with the commitment to making a tangible contribution to conservation efforts was simply too great a pull on my heart (and sanity) to resist.

Stuart: For the past 4 years I have had the privilege of working with Wildlife Act in a number of initiatives, such as Challenge for a Cause and Project Rhino, and have witnessed the incredible work they do on the ground in the protection of endangered species. The Rhino Peak Challenge represents an opportunity to contribute to a cause that’s close to my heart, and hopefully raise awareness in my community around the importance of events such as RPC and what this support means to its beneficiaries in the restoration and preservation of South Africa’s Rhino, Crane and Vulture populations.
