We use small operators who put their hearts and souls into what they do. They are committed to protecting the environment on which they depend while providing sustainable employment and help for the communities surrounding them. Tourism in these African countries has helped – and will continue to help – both communities and conservation.
We admire and support the following grassroots community and conservation initiatives. Through your bookings, you will be donating to these causes.
The Victoria Falls Anti-Poaching Unit
The Victoria Falls Anti–Poaching Unit (VFAPU) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of our local wildlife and natural resources. They aim to eradicate poaching in the Victoria Falls region through a programme of EDUCATION, MANAGEMENT and BOOTS ON THE GROUND.
The Bhejane Trust is a Zimbabwe registered non-profit trust, established in 2010 by two Zimbabwean conservationists, Trevor Lane and Stephen Long. They assist National Parks in many aspects of the management and operations of the Parks estate in northwestern Matabeleland. This includes facilitating anti-poaching and deployments, research work, staff welfare, and a host of other missions, as well as the original Rhino monitoring program. Bhejane Trust relies on donor funding to continue its operations.
Mummy’s Angels Zimbabwe
Mummy’s Angels Zimbabwe is a registered non-profit Trust based in Victoria Falls, created to provide assistance for expectant mothers who have nothing. Sometimes these mothers travel by donkey cart without even shoes or a blanket for their baby and many are teens. Working in collaboration with the doctors, midwife’s and nursing teams at the Victoria Falls Hospital, Mummy’s Angels Zimbabwe is alerted when there is a mother in need, and the small passionate team who volunteer, swiftly put together a newborn baby hamper containing as many necessities as possible to assist the new mother. They greatly accept second-hand donations of children’s clothing as well as new. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Victoria Falls Children’s Trust
Victoria Falls Children’s Trust is dedicated to assisting orphans and vulnerable children in the community of Victoria Falls and surrounding areas. The Trust is a non-profit organization and all trustees volunteer equal amounts of time toward this very worthy cause with our main objective being school fees, followed by child welfare.
