In efforts to assist national parks and the on-going efforts by stake holders of Hwange and other conservation groups, African Bush Camps has initiated a Conservation project called “aManzi” which means water in Ndebele.

Somalisa will this year be managing Manga III waterhole and assisting with the management and the up-keep of the Manga area which is vital for the survival of some of the habitat specific wildlife found in the area such as Roan antelope (an endangered species).

After Manga III, Nkawazana water hole will be the next pan to get working again and that will provide the wildlife in that area with access to consistent water thereby spreading the impact that animals such as elephants have on the vegetation, resulting in the survival of large key indigenous trees.

Please contact us at to be a part of these conservation efforts.

We believe that the future of conservation lies in the hands of local communities that will see to the protection of the wildlife in their immediate areas where they live. One of our ways to expose them to the real benefits of wildlife and the wilderness areas is to allow the future generations access to a reasonable education through “tourism dollars”.

Somalisa Camp continues to support Main Camp primary school of about 100 school kids of which up to a third of them are orphans. Some of the support is in the form of school fees and uniforms for all the orphans, stationery for the school, development of an industry centre as well as senior school and university scholarships programmes.

We would love you to be a part of this project, contact us at
