Thank you for joining Phil Liggett's African Safari Peloton. This fundraiser is open for donations.

Freedom To Roam Adventures, in partnership with FulGaz and Kariega Game Reserve, started Phil Liggett’s African Safari Peloton. In June 2021 the international team created an exclusive opportunity to join Phil, the voice of cycling, on four exhilarating virtual safari cycle routes through dramatic African wilderness teeming with wild animals. 

The four rides were filmed at Kariega Game Reserve, a breathtakingly beautiful Big 5 safari destination in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. Cycling is not usually permitted on the reserve.

These events connected a group of like-minded people in a fundraising collaboration to rejuvenate our planet, people and wildlife

Our 2021 series has ended, but we are already planning some wonderful gatherings for Phil's African Safari Peloton in 2022. 

By making a small donation you will become part of Phil's Peloton and receive all correspondence about future future events and opportunities. 

We look forward to connecting with you! Every donation is appreciated.

FUNDS RAISED SUPPORT HOLISTIC CONSERVATION

The beneficiary of Phil’s African Safari Peloton is the Kariega Foundation, a non-profit trust working in partnership with Kariega Game Reserve to deliver on a broad and holistic conservation mandate. All funds raised support projects with the core motive to protect, preserve and educate so that we may reform that which threatens our natural world and build a greater conservation community that works collectively to rejuvenate our planet, people and wildlife.

For further information please email Lindy Sutherland, Kariega Foundation director on foundation@kariega.co.za or Trish Liggett, founder of Freedom to Roam Adventures on trish.ftra@gmail.com.
