Home > Pack for a Purpose

We are proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travelers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination. If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and take supplies for area schools or medical clinics in need, you’ll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families. Please follow the below links to see what supplies are needed for our projects in the various countries where African Bush Camps are situated.


Zimbabwe – Somalisa

* Hwange Main Camp Primary

* Mambanje Primary School

* Thandanani, Vukani


Botswana – Linyanti Bush Camp, Linyanti Ebony

* Vuche Vuche

* Parakarungu Primary School

Botswana – Khwai Tented Camp

The goal of ‘Pack for a Purpose’ is to assist travelers who want to say thank you in this manner, or who simply want to expand their generosity beyond their own communities. By asking travelers to pack 5-lb’s (2.27-kg’s) of supplies, ‘Pack for a Purpose’ involves everyone who wants to add value to his or her trip. By delivering the supplies directly to a ground person at key airports or directly at the traveler’s accommodation, it is possible for every traveler to contribute and requires no logistical support.

The Foundation also encourages all African Bush Camps guests to bring stationery, books, pens, pencils, art materials and sporting equipment, which greatly benefit the schools.
