Umtshibi Camp is situated about 15 km away from Main Camp inside the Hwange National Park. The camp houses the headquarters of the parks Wildlife Management Unit. There are currently approximately 45 families living at the camp representing a total population of approximately 150 people including young children. The African Bush Camps Foundation is therefore in the process of helping with the establishment of a modern day pre-school that meets the requirements of the Ministry of Primary and Secondary education.
This means the school will be equipped to meet all educational needs of the infants and thus allowing the Park teams to fully focus on their core work of conserving and protecting the environment and particularly protecting the wildlife in the National Park.
The African Bush Camps Foundation team visited the site and took time to meet with the relevant committees to map a way forward.
