Remote camps and lodges are a vital lifeline for many local communities. Our favorite properties employ local and train and promote from within wherever possible. In Africa, an average of seven people are dependent on one salaried family member so every employed person has a significant ripple effect. The community becomes committed to the success of the camp which is tied to a healthy ecosystem, supporting a thriving wildlife population. Outlooks change and anti-poaching efforts are established. Many properties also work with local leaders to create solutions related to water, education, nutrition, or other community needs.
