To preserve important African wilderness areas Tshembo Africa Foundation and Greater Kruger Environmental Protection Foundation are launching the #BurpeesForConservation challenge. The aim of this fundraising campaign is to raise 1 Million South African Rand. This will be achieved by engaging thousands of people around the globe to participate in this sportive challenge to get to a total count of 1 Million burpees and getting sponsorship for those.
To kick-start the challenge, Bruce Lawson – Co-Founder of Tshembo Africa Foundation – is attempting a new world record by performing 30,000 burpees in 10 days. With this initiative we want to engage and inspire as many individuals and companies as possible, enabling them to show their support for the African wildlife and preserve important wilderness areas for future generations to come.

Our foundation was formed 2020 by Nature and Wilderness Guides – who understand the importance of preserving wilderness areas and engaging with the adjacent communities to form a critical symbiotic relationship – and professional individuals in the finance and media sector therefore building a strong alliance.
Based in the Kruger to Canyon Biosphere Reserve in the town of Hoedspruit, we strongly care about supporting protected areas, enhancing livelihoods in communities and funding conservation initiatives.
GKEPF was established in 2016, in direct response to the alarming number of endangered animals killed by poachers in the region of the Greater Kruger National Park (GKNP) – an area which encompasses more than 20 million hectares of unfenced wilderness and which is host to the largest wild rhino population in the world.
