Combine your passion for running with an unforgettable safari experience in the African bush.
The Be Moved Run Safari is the ultimate bucket list week for runners seeking to experience adventure, make a positive impact and leave a lasting legacy.
You will be fully immersed in the sights and sounds of the African bush. You will have left your mark on a piece of Africa. And a very special place in Africa will have left its mark on you.
The Be Moved Run Safari began life known as the Addo2Fish Marathon as it was born out of a desire to share the dream of free-roaming wildlife and biodiversity restoration with the worldwide running community.
The Be Moved branding focusses on the emotional journey in being involved such an impactful project. A 5 night experience that is so much more than the runs that make the safari so unique.
The Be Moved Run Safari includes two trail runs among the wildlife in a malaria free region in Southern Africa. Terrain is mostly jeep track so both road runners and trail runners will enjoy the full experience, and each run has distance options suitable for everyone. You will run in small groups where we will slow or stop when near wildlife on the route – as we would if we were on a game drive.
The Run to Rewild is hosted at The Tanglewood Conservation Area, the centre of the biodiversity restoration project. You will run among zebra, giraffe, kudu, ostrich, wildebeest and waterbuck, and by September 2024 rhino will have been re-introduced.
The Run with the Wild on Amakhala Game Reserve is everything a fully wild run among the Big 5. The 2022 and 2023 required mid run route adjustments for rhino, lion, buffalo and elephant – while also allowing moving in close but safe proximity to them.
Your trip includes an all-inclusive odyssey into the African wilderness. Spend your nights in our stylish game lodges, and by day enjoy game drives among the Big 5, sundowners overlooking the plains, and end your day around a blazing fire sharing your experiences under the African stars.
But you will be more than just a passive spectator. We will take you behind the scenes of the Conservation Landscapes Initiative, an ambitious dream to develop a modern conservation economy where both humans and animals thrive and bring back the great beasts that once covered these plains and mountains.
Fall asleep to the sound of lion roaring or the lonesome call of the hyena. Relax by the pool and enjoy a drink after an early morning adventure in an open game-viewing vehicle. Take in the views from the deck, enjoy a private candlelit dinner under the stars, or gather around the fire as your senses absorb the sights and sounds of the African bush.
The Be Moved Run Safari is perfectly suited to families or groups of friends – the lodges are intimate with some catering for groups as small as six or eight people. Each game viewer seats eight people, and there are properties where slightly bigger groups can be accommodated.
The safari is so much more than a run. Be a part of the the future of conservation. Be inspired by the conservation dream that the Be Moved Run Safari embodies.
Meet rhino warrior Dr William Fowlds; Anti-poaching pilot and drone operator Siseko Mayinje; and wildlife photographer and ranger instructor Peter Chadwick – central figures in the fight to protect rhino populations from poachers in the region. Listen to their stories and hear their vision.
Community and collaboration is critical to the realization of this dream and the future of our planet. This is your opportunity to become a part of this dream, and to see the impact of your participation in this amazing event.
The safety and security of our runners, our team and thre animals is always our top priority. We are supported by dedicated conservationists and rangers with generations of experience and knowledge of the environment. The following support protocols will be in place:
