I’m sure you’ve heard of the term “eco-travel” before. But what about “totem travel”? This new buzz word is becoming popular in 2023, and it refers to a type of travel where you focus on the story behind the place.
Education is crucial for children as it provides them with the knowledge, skills, and values they need to succeed in life. It helps them develop critical thinking, problem-solving skills, and emotional intelligence. Education also opens up opportunities for children, such as better job prospects and higher earning potential. It empowers them to make informed decisions and contribute positively to society.
The African Bush Camps Foundation is committed to improve the livelihoods of communities surrounding our camps in Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe through Community Empowerment, Education and Conversation projects and initiatives. Here is some of their project highlights for 2022.
Safaris are a great opportunity to create awareness and help travellers experience the authentic beauty of Africa. World Safari Day is the perfect opportunity for us to celebrate the communities, ecosystems and wildlife around our camps, which is the core of our Foundation and an integral part of our safari experiences.
As a foundation we recognize the importance and urgency in providing learners with access to quality education and ensuring that they have the tools and resources that they need at school to enable them to learn without any barriers or hinderances. Our Education focus area aims to improve the quality of learning facilities, provide access to education for the poor, and offer leadership and job shadowing opportunities.
Females in safari is a platform that showcases female empowerment in our business and in the tourism industry. From our camps in Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana that are managed and run by women to our female guides program and community empowerment projects that are supporting mothers and young girls we are actively investing in the development of women in the areas leadership, education, business and career development
