South Africa’s Port Edward was the starting point for the 1,000-mile long charity rally, called Enduro Africa 2008. The eight-day long adventure started on Saturday.
Amongst the most notorious participants are Great Britain’s princes William, 26, and Harry, 24. The two will be competing with more than 80 other riders who are willing to put their effort into raising money for charity.
The funds raised though this race are destined to go to several humanitarian organizations such as UNICEF, the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund and Sentebale, a charity organization established by Prince Harry in order to help Lesotho children.
The two princes were delighted to compete in this race, considering that they get to help those in need by doing something fun at the same time; they both enjoy motorbikes and off-road circuits and practice this sport whenever their tight schedule allows them to.
They also appreciate the opportunity of actually spending time together as their military careers and royal duties keep them away from each other quite a lot.
