A safari with a difference. Not only will you get a chance to explore the beautiful national parks in Zambia and Zimbabwe with river and land activities but you will also have the unique opportunity to understand more about the intricate world of conservation, first-hand. Conservation is a multifaceted issue, from anti-poaching efforts to minimising human/wildlife conflict on the borders of national parks, there are many ways to address the problems we are faced with.

African Bush Camps Foundation partners with these communities to improve their quality of life and achieve long-term conservation through programmes focusing on Community Empowerment, Conservation and Education

On this immersive safari, as an included activity on one of your days at each camp, you will pay a visit to the projects in each community bordering the national parks. Here you’ll learn about the partnerships African Bush Camps Foundation have forged directly linking benefits and value to tourism. 

Other activities include morning & afternoon game drives, walking safaris, rhino tracking, sunrise & sunset boat cruises, Simonga Village visits, a visit to the Zambian side of the Victoria Falls, a visit to the Zimbabwean side of the Falls in low water season (excludes visa fees), visit to the Livingstone Museum, canoe trips, visit to Maramba & Makuni Markets, fishing, Spa (additional costs apply).

COMMUNITY & CONSERVATION PROJECTS

The African Bush Camps Foundation identifies needs, skills and resources along with communities to improve the quality of life and deliver meaningful change. Our goal is to create opportunities to empower these communities to become self-sustaining and independent. Starting with forging meaningful partnerships amongst stakeholders, we gage in the conversation of needs and challenges while also promoting conservation and community spirit.

We encourage you to engage with us on a real and meaningful level.
We want you to have the opportunity to choose the project you wish to support and enjoy information and interaction on its progress.
