It’s hard to believe that eight months ago today we were cycling down this ‘short cut’ in Malawi. So much has changed since then but the Rangers are still working day and night to protect Africa’s most wild places and animals. For more information, please visit www.cyclingforrangers.com. Have a a great week #wildlife #rangers #cyclingforrangers #protectthewild #nationalgeographic #malawi #wildlifeguardian #nature #africa

Big thanks to @twentymileclub for giving us the chance to remember and re-live some of the more dramatic moments of our trip!
They are doing some awesome work sharing the stories of people in their 20s doing something out of the ordinary.

If you are interested in finding out more about our trip, we have a couple of talks coming up over the next few months so get in touch for details! https://twentymileclub.com/cycling-for-rangers/

Great evening last night at the @forrangers fundraising dinner in cooperation with @savetherhinointernational, raising money and awareness for the guys on the ground in Kenya and all over Africa! It was a pleasure to meet His Royal Highness Prince William @dukeofcambridge. Next time we should probably sort out our ties before having our photo taken! #forrangers #fundraiser #conservation #princewilliam #london #adventure #travel #cyclingforrangers @kensingtonroyal

Thank you very much to Marlborough College for hosting the ‘Cycling For Rangers’ talk this afternoon. We hope we’ve encouraged a few more people to go out and explore, whilst raising the profile of @forrangers! #adventure #explore #wildlife #conservation

Today the two Wills are up in Manchester talking to @craghoppersofficial at their new range launch.. Here's a moment where we decided to use the #craghoppersnosilife hat as a water filter! #cycling #talks #adventure #getoutdoors

A pre deployment parade in Borana Conservancy! A great insight into the incredible training and dedication of the park rangers in Kenya. Borana and Lewa have not had a Rhino poached in three years due to these unsung individuals! #rangers #borana #forrangers #wildlife #conservation #cycletouring #canon #canon5dmkiii

One of the biggest threats to mountain gorillas is their ability to contract human diseases. With DNA 98% identical to humans, it’s incredibly important to monitor their interactions with tourists. Another example of the incredible work the rangers are doing to protect Africa’s most wild places and animals #cycletouring #bwindi #mountaingorillas #uganda #yourshotphotographer #nationalgeographic #gorilla #conservation #conservationthroughpublichealth #jungle

Having spent five months cycling through Sub Saharan Africa, one would expect our most terrifying moment to have been on the bikes. However, this was not the case. As we strolled through Akagera National Park on our first ever Lion tracking patrol, it’s fair to say we were all petrified as we came across a pack of six lions only ten metres away. This is just one of the many jobs the Rangers do everyday in order to protect Africa’s most wild animals. #akagera #rwanda #cycling #cycletouring #rangers #lions #wildlife #conservation #notopoaching

This is Rianto, the second in command of the rangers in Borana. During our last few days in Kenya we were fortunate enough to spend some time with him on patrol and hear some incredible stories of how he got to where he is. An inspirational character in many ways, stay tuned! #rangers #wildlife #conservation #lewa #kenya #cycletouring #notopoaching

Today is International Animals Day, an annual day of action for animal rights and welfare! What better time to celebrate one of the most majestic species, The Painted Dog. This photo was taken in Hwange National park in Zimbabwe after darting a dog that had been caught in a snare. Although snaring isn't intended for the dogs, they pose one of the highest threats to these extremely endangered species. #notopoaching #painteddog #wilddogs #hwange #zimbabwe #internationalanimalsday

Here’s a flashback to Bwindi Impenetrable Forrest in Uganda. After a three hour hike into the park, weaving under trees and passing through rivers we got a great insight into how tough the job of a ranger is in the Misty Mountains. #bwindi #uganda #rangers #notopoaching #conservation #conservationthroughpublichealth
