4Cs Projects at Linkwasha Camp

As the concessionaire of the private Linkwasha and Makalolo areas in south-eastern Hwange National Park, Wilderness Safaris has taken responsibility for many aspects of the conservation of this magnificent wild location.

Hwange Water Supply Project

During the dry season, water resources are tested to the limit. Wilderness Safaris maintains some 22 boreholes in the Park, supporting them both logistically and financially. This includes daily refuelling and maintenance of pumps.

Hwange Anti-Poaching Project

Along the Park’s southern boundary, many mammals fall victim to snaring. Wilderness thus has joined Hwange in jointly combatting the effects of poaching, conducting patrols and removing snares.

Village Schools Rehabilitation Project

A number of schools in the villages that lie on the boundaries of Hwange have been in dire need of everything from classrooms to chalk. Wilderness works with Children in the Wilderness to provide all equipment as well as teacher training and accommodation.

School Nutrition Programme

In 2008, it was found that many children were getting so little to eat they could not even walk to school. Wilderness Safaris, its guests and Children in the Wilderness have since then provided one meal a day all year round to the children of five schools on the outskirts of Hwange.

Pack for a Purpose

Wilderness Safaris has partnered with Pack for a Purpose, a non-profit organisation that provides travellers with up-to-date information about required supplies for community-based projects. Guests that would like to bring along a contribution can view the needs list for Linkwasha Camp’s community projects on the Pack for a Purpose website.
