Without visitors and the benefits to the communities which tourism brings, the habitat would soon succumb to human expansion, agriculture and poaching and the wildlife would disappear and the real Africa safari experience of today would be a thing of the past.
Bushbuck’s private guides, and the camp/lodge operators we support, employ local staff and are involved with community projects. This includes sponsoring education, supporting or building rural schools, initiating healthcare facilities and educating local communities in conservation. Many also become involved in much-needed wildlife research.
Some camps and lodges are owned by local communities which helps drive conservation in the area even further. Included in nightly rates and your safari price are bed night levies and community fees which directly support the local communities.
By using ethical operators and going on safari to these remote areas you are supporting whole communities and helping to preserve wildlife and habitats for future generations.
