Responsible tourism: Zimbabwe safari holiday, tailor made

Environment

During the dry season, water resources are tested to the limit. The lodge maintains some 22 boreholes in the Park, supporting them both logistically and financially. This includes daily refuelling and maintenance of pumps.

Along the Parks southern boundary, many mammals fall victim to snaring. The lodge has thus has joined Hwange in combatting the effects of poaching, conducting patrols and removing snares.

Ruckomechi is powered by a hybrid system, combining a diesel powered generator that charges a bank of batteries which in turn supplies the camp with electricity through an inverter. Thanks to this, the generator only needs to operate for eight hours a day as opposed to 24 hours. In addition, each guest tent has solar-powered geyser providing hot water.

Data collection in Mana Pools aids this project, which looks at the population status of wild dog in Zimbabwe as well as the human-wild dog conflict. It aims to protect and increase the range and number of wild dog through research, education and community involvement.

Community

A number of schools in the villages that lie on the boundaries of Hwange have been in need of everything from classrooms to chalk. The Safari operator works with Children in the Wilderness and many donors to provide all equipment as well as teacher training and accommodation, so that the children can acquire an education.

In 2008, it was found that many children were getting so little to eat they could not even walk to school. The safari operator, its guests and Children in the Wilderness have since then provided one meal on every school day of the year to the children of five schools on the outskirts of Hwange.

They have in partnership with the local community developed a Responsible Code of Visitor Behaviour that is shared with guests before they go into the community for village visits so as to protect traditional cultures and minimize the impacts of tourism on living culture. They also provide guests with an Insider's Guide to Responsible Safaris which includes important cultural aspects.
