Zimbabwe Conservation and Community Safari | Overview

Introduction

Hwange National Park is Zimbabwe's largest game reserve. It is known for its great herds of elephant, but what makes it truly unique is the fact that it has no year-round natural water source. Both the animals and the surrounding communities are dependent on boreholes for water supply.  Safari operators and their guests contribute greatly to maintaining the water supplies and other important conservation efforts.

INCA has partnered with Imvelo Safaris, owners of superbly run safari lodges, to offer a special conservation adventure that will be a hands-on opportunity for guests to engage with wildlife and community projects.  

Help in the Park: go on a pump maintenance run deep into the reserve, visit a local anti-poaching unit, use GPS to help map predators.  Help in the community: replace a well’s pump cylinder, teach baseball, prepare a school lunch, present your home town to a classroom.

It’s not all work. Enjoy guided safari walks and spectacular wildlife viewing, “dine” with elephants, ride the Elephant Express, canoe the Zambezi River, visit Victoria Falls, and stay at Imvelo’s renowned camps and lodges.

Sleep and dine well, knowing you have helped conserve local communities, wildlife of the Park, and the balance between the two.
