The “H20 Hwange” Campaign supports the ongoing efforts to ensure adequate water sources are available for the wildlife in Hwange National Park.

Hwange, half the size of Belgium at 14,500 sq. km, is totally reliant in the dry season (September – November) on diesel-driven boreholes, of which there are over 60 in the park. Due to the costs involved and lack of funding, the National Park faces a critical situation every year. Many of the water-holes around the National Park dry up, yet wildlife continue to congregate around areas which have very limited water remaining.

Following two years of devastating Dry Seasons, the African Bush Camps Foundation initiated the “H20 Hwange” campaign in 2012 to help supply water to the areas surrounding our camps, Somalisa and Somalisa Acacia.

So far…

The campaign has received tremendous support, we are partnered with Elefence International and the Umkawazaan Solar Borehole project was completed in December 2013. We are also holding discussions with WEZ and Zimbabwe National Parks to find ways to assist with creating new waterholes as well maintain the current waterholes.

Wildlife Environment Zimbabwe (WEZ) and ‘Friends of Hwange’, have worked in collaboration with National Parks for several years to pump water into several pans spread throughout the Park. Due to limited funding, not all Pans are consistently pumped and these organisations, along with other operators in the Park are continually looking at ways to improve the water situation around Hwange National Park.

The H2O Hwange Campaign relies on fundraising to keep the water flowing to these very special wildlife areas. If you would like to support the campaign, please contact us.
