African Bushcamps Foundation
We began operating in 2006 with the vision of creating opportunities that empower rural communities located in vulnerable wildlife areas in Zimbabwe, Botswana & Zambia. 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.
