We then journey to Zambia, where we are improving access to quality healthcare for the community and improving the quality of education. We will visit the Maunga clinic where we have improved access to quality healthcare for women in the community by building a clinic fully-equipped with a maternity ward. This clinic has significantly reduced the mortality rate for mothers and children during labour. In addition to this, we will visit Maunga Primary where we are supporting learners and teachers at the school through infrastructure improvements, access to educational resources and materials and launching the nutrition program.

We wrap up the adventure in Zimbabwe by visiting the Mambanje and Dete communities just outside of the Hwange National Park, where our projects are actively investing in schools, communities and conservation to help mitigate human-wildlife conflict by educating, equipping and empowering communities living near national parks to co-exist with wildlife. We will visit Mambanje Garden, Thandanani and Vukani, women-led groups that are earning a living as tailors, selling crops and making jewellery from recycled magazines and newsletters. Learn how they make jewellery and beads while doing some shopping for their store in the village. We conclude the trip with a visit the Mambanje Primary School for a tour of the school facilities and we will volunteer at the nutrition program.

We wrapped up 2022 with this quote by C.S. Lewis: “Progress means getting nearer to the place you want to be.” This quote is one of the truest reflections of what the past 24 months have been for us at African Bush Camps Foundation: It’s been making progress.
It’s been learning to crawl, walk, and run again. We have been leaning back into our core as an organisation and realigned ourselves and our projects so we can make a lasting and sustainable difference and impact in the communities and areas near our camps.
This impact magazine is the culmination of a lot of hard work and support by, the ABC family, our donors and the communities we support. It’s a reflection of how far we have come, an extension of our gratitude for the unwavering support we continue to receive and our encouragement to keep making progress.
Game drives are what gets us up in the morning in the African bush, they’re a great avenue for exploring the land in a safe and exciting way.
