Our Commitment to Responsible Tourism

We recognise that the need for more conservation and community development programmes to be embedded within the tourism industry, now more than ever, is crucial. Local rural communities are in need of support, not charity, but to be given the chance to be empowered and alleviated from the difficulties that they are faced with.  To this end, we have formed the Hide Community Trust – a non-profit organisation, committed to conservation and sustainable community development.

The Hide Community Trust runs alongside The Hide and is partnered with a local community that surrounds Hwange National Park. Our aim is for the relief of poverty, the promotion of education, as well as the benefits of conservation. Our support to these communities will be through Community Capacity Building, social enterprise, education, sustainable development as well as conservation and human-wildlife conflict solutions.
