Drive 4 Wildlife was a conservation expedition that saw three brothers (Aaron, Tyler and Cameron Whitnall), their life long friend (Redmond Boulton) and their school friend and camera operator (Will Ferguson) driving over 4000 kilometres through Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda in East Africa in aid of wildlife conservation.
In each country the boys would stop at different conservation projects to learn about and film the threats facing Africa’s animals and the ongoing conservation work taking place to protect them by the different charities and projects.

Thanks to sponsorship through Motor Vision, Paradise Wildlife Park/Zoological Society of Hertfordshire and the Big Cat Sanctuary, the boys were able to travel across East Africa in a safari Jeep and also leave donations on funds and equipment at each conservation project they visited.
The expedition saw Drive 4 Wildlife set up partnerships with the African Wildlife Foundation, Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya and also the Ugandan Wildlife Education Centre and their partners at Queen Elizabeth Nation Park and Ngamba Chimpanzee island Sanctuary in the middle of Lake Victoria.
