Hideways pledged its partnership with The Conservation and Wildlife Fund (CWF) in 2015. The objective of the Conservation and Wildlife Fund is to work together with the Wildlife Authorities of Zimbabwe to raise awareness, resource local authorities and promote the sustainable management of its precious wildlife resources. The CWF run anti-poaching initiatives and build boreholes for the Hwange area.
The objective of the CWF is to work together with the wildlife authorities of Zimbabwe to raise awareness, adequately resource local authorities, and promote the sustainable use and management of the wildlife.
The founding stakeholder lodges along with Hideaways, also include African Bush Camps, The Hide and The Amalinda Collection offer a conservation levy of USD 10 per person, per night for all visitors travelling to the lodges. While some lodges are making the levy compulsory, we have chosen to keep the donation voluntary and at the choosing of each individual client
As a member of the CWF, we and our partners believe that actions, such as the above, has become critical in order in to protect and conserve Zimbabwe fauna. In a little over three years some African countries have lost over half of their elephant population; and some have lost thousands of wild lions and rhinos.
We look forward to seeing the success of these boreholes during the upcoming dry season. Should you with to find out how you can assist or donate, please contact Nicole on firstname.lastname@example.org.
