The African Bush Camps Foundation is a registered not-for-profit organization that began operating in 2006 with the vision of creating opportunities that empower rural communities located in vulnerable wildlife areas.
The Foundation’s mission is to partner with these communities to improve their quality of life and achieve long-term conservation through programs focusing on education, conservation, community infrastructure and community empowerment.
By directly linking these benefits to tourism these communities learn to positively value wildlife and nature as resources for improving their well being.
The African Bush Camps Foundation identifies needs, skills and resources within communities and forges meaningful partnerships amongst the stakeholders, creating opportunities to empower the communities and their members to become self-sustaining and independent, whilst also promoting conservation and community spirit.
We work with the rural communities living in and around the wildlife areas in which African Bush Camps operates.
Through our multi-faceted partnership with African Bush Camps, each and every bed night in any one of their camps donates US$10 to the African Bush Camps Foundation covering our administrative overheads, allowing us to make sure that 100% of each and every donation goes directly to the project it is intended for.
At the African Bush Camps Foundation, we are passionate about working side by side with people to achieve our goals of providing opportunities for communities to sustainably free themselves from poverty whilst protecting their invaluable environmental resources.
We have a wonderful team who are dedicated, passionate, fun and love passing on their skills, knowledge and time.
