Bushlife Safaris are very active members in the Mana Pools National Park community and are passionate about wildlife conservation in Zimbabwe. Nick and Desirée are completely dedicated to conservation – for their children’s generation, and generations to come.
Bushlife Conservancy is our funding partner and their small team does amazing work raising funds for conservation, primarily in the Zambezi River Valley of Zimbabwe and Zambia. They are a section 501(c)(3) registered charity in the United States. If you would like to get involved and donate to their mission of “Protect and save African wildlife for future generations”, please visit their website below.
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 our “boots-on-the-ground” team and anti-poaching patrols are deployed daily in vehicles and boats. Countless arrests have been made, subsequently saving the lives of animals in Mana Pools National Park.
Bushlife Painted Wolf Conservancy
The Bushlife Painted Wolf Conservancy is a branch of Bushlife Support Unit Trust and specialises in the research and conservation of the African Wild Dog. Nick Murray was the lead guide for the Painted Wolf episode of the global BBC Earth Dynasties series narrated by Sir David Attenborough, which brought much-needed attention to the plight of this endangered species.
