All our conservation work, including this project, is born of our love for Africa and our need to protect it. Become a part of preserving Africa’s legacy for future generations.

Nurturing a passion for nature

The communities close to our reserves play a key role in helping us to achieve our conservation goals, and in preserving the integrity of each wilderness area and its ecosystem. Ensuring that communities understand and benefit from the existence of the reserve is an important element of this relationship. Despite living in such close proximity to Singita Pamushana, many have never had the opportunity to view and appreciate the wildlife that we are tirelessly working to protect.

The Conservation Education Centre (Hakamela Bush Camp) is set in the heart of the Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve and was established by the Malilangwe Trust to teach children about the importance of conservation and to nurture a passion for this in their everyday lives.

Key Successes:

How it works:
  • The camp hosts groups of 20 to 30 children from 11 local primary schools for a 3-day residential course.
  • The aim is to teach them the importance of conservation and to develop a deep-seated curiosity and interest in the wildlife of the reserve.
  • Each three-day residential program conducted at Hakamela Camp in the reserve consists of classroom lessons and physical activities. Participants learn identification and tracking skills, go on game drives and visit the Malilangwe Dam to learn about aquatic conservation.
How to help:Your support for this program will go a long way to nurturing a passion for conservation in local youths.
