947 Ride Joburg

The biggest annual celebration of cycling in South Africa

We have 16 brave cyclists representing the 16 elephants in the Jabulani elephant herd in the 94.7 Ride Joburg this year! Help our HERD champions raise R9050 to feed, care and look after their chosen elephant for 1 month! 

Funds will be used for: 

Lucerne = R2500
Wildspille = R1500
Medication = R300
Teff = R100
Cleaning Supplies = R100
Bana Grass = R650
Vet bills = R400
Water and Electricity = R3500


Help Save Our Vulnerable Gentle Giants

We rely on incredible people like you to keep us going. Every cent counts, and no contribution is too small. HERD relies on public funding to cover the operational costs to care for and support elephant orphans and the rescued herd, so we really appreciate your support.
