Community Endeavours

As part of our commitment to the local communities, we prioritize recruiting staff from the neighbouring villages situated just outside the Kafue National Park. By doing so, we aim to provide employment opportunities and contribute to the livelihoods of the local population.

To support the development of aspiring professionals in the hospitality industry, we offer work experience opportunities to newly qualified hotel and catering students within our safari camp. This hands-on experience allows them to gain valuable insights into the unique dynamics of working in a safari camp, enabling them to make informed decisions about their future career paths, whether it be in a town hotel, lodge, or camp setting.

Furthermore, we have initiated projects that involve inviting local children to spend one or two nights in the camp, introducing them to the captivating world of wildlife that many of them have never had the opportunity to witness. These special projects often take place during the green season, fostering a deeper connection between the younger generation and the natural wonders surrounding them.

In 2011, we established a small fundraising charity to provide support to the families of our staff members and villagers in times of unfortunate circumstances. Thanks to the generous contributions from a group of regular guests, this fund has been instrumental in facilitating various initiatives, such as providing a wheelchair for a chronically ill teenager within the village. These efforts exemplify our commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of those within the local community.
