12 year old on top of the world for rhinos

23 April 2012, 13:09

12 year old Dante Tackles the world’s highest Mountain to help save the rhinos

Everest Base Camp is the place to be right now if you have any interest in the highest Mountain on the world!! During the next few weeks, the conditions are the most likely to be e favourable to allow potential mountaineers who wish to summit Mount Everest. Conditions need to be perfect to allow mountaineers the ability to reach the summit and descend safely in one 24 hour period.

The Everest Base camp will be crowded and famous mountaineers and hopefuls rub shoulders in the icy conditions, hoping and waiting for the ideal conditions to attempt the incredible feat of being at the summit of the world’s highest peak. Getting to the Everest Base camp is no mean feat in itself and it is here that 12 year old Dante Burdych and his father Rene are headed next week.

The 2 who hail from Henley-on-Klip are attempting this incredible trek to fulfil a lifelong ambition to actually reach Everest. They have been planning this epic journey for the last 2 years. The Burdych family are nature lovers and spend much of their time outdoor and are fond of visiting the many Nature reserves in South Africa. They have increasingly become more alarmed about the dreadful attack on the rhino in South Africa and have therefore decided to use their Everest trip to help in highlighting the plight of the rhino. They will be trekking under the banner of Unite Against Poaching, which is a trust fund established by Unitrans VW & Audi aiming to raise over R5 million in it’s first year to help save the rhino in our South African Nature reserves. Unite against Poaching and Wild Magazine are proud that Dante and his father will be using their Everest Trek for Rhinos to bring attention to the rhinos poaching scourge of our country.
