Conserving wildlife for future generations
Bushlife Safaris are active members in the Mana Pools National Park community and are passionate about wildlife conservation in Zimbabwe. Nick Murray, based in Mana Pools, works alongside a team of experienced pro-guides and trackers, whose main focus is to save our environment from the poachers who inhabit the area. In 2015, following many years of continuous work on the anti-poaching front, the Bushlife Support Unit was set up, uniting the Zambezi Valley community together in a consolidated effort to stop poaching in the area.
The Bushlife Support Unit is challenging work where trackers are deployed daily in vehicles and boats, mostly bought through the donations of our generous guests, where a team of expert rangers are on the search for poachers on both land or river, where once they are tracked down, countless arrests have been made, subsequently saving the lives of animals in Mana Pools National Park.
The Bushlife Support unit has a passionate team working behind the scenes as well and we are happy to keep you updated on all the progress being made with the anti-poaching and updates on all donations. Please sign up for here for the monthly Bushlife Support Unit newsletter and follow us on our Facebook page for regular updates.
Bushlife Safaris are currently linked to several community projects in the area. The most recent being working to support the Tashinga Initiative on the building of a permanent ranger station for the National Park rangers to be based at in Nyakasikana. We are also looking to support the local community by showcasing a range of their arts and crafts at Vundu Camp, where all proceeds will go towards the families who made them in the area.
Another project that is currently underway is to create a self-sustained agricultural environment for the community of 300 people living in Mana Pools. The objective here is to set the local community up so they can produce their own commodities with both crops and livestock. This should eventually lead to a decrease in poaching in the area.
