Children in the Wilderness

A Brighter Future Children in the Wilderness (CITW) is an environmental and life skills educational programme that began as a result of discussions with actor Paul Newman in Botswana in August 2001. In December of that year, the first CITW camp took place in Botswana. Since then, the programme has expanded into almost all our areas of operation, so that annual camps are now run in Botswana, Malawi, Namibia, the Seychelles, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Through a carefully designed educational programme which uses the healing power of nature to inspire its young participants, CITW focuses on the next generation of rural decision makers. Wilderness Safaris closes some of its camps for a week at a time and groups of 16 to 40 children between the ages of 10 and 14 are transferred into the respective camps for a period of five days at a time and given the opportunity to experience these wilderness areas and their wildlife. During camp, the curriculum covers environmental education, HIV/AIDS and nutrition and life skills, and the importance of conservation, striving to instil a passion for the environment so that the children are inspired to become the custodians of these areas in the future. Approximately 500 children are hosted in camp every year, but no less important than the camp itself is the follow-up programme. Depending on the specific needs of the country’s children, this takes place in schools with Environmental Clubs formed, in the villages where mentors visit the children at school and home, or with scholarships to help students gain secondary and even tertiary education.

Wilderness Wildlife Trust

Making a difference to Africa, its wildlife and its people The Wilderness Wildlife Trust, an independent entity within the Wilderness Group, was formed in the late 1980s when it was understood that the Group, a luxury ecotourism business operating brands such as Wilderness Safaris, could only do so much for conservation in the course of its day-to-day activities and needed a dedicated vehicle to take matters further. More funds and a greater reach were needed in order for overall conservation activities to be more effective. Accordingly, it was decided that an independent entity that facilitated fundraising and the disbursement of the monies to deserving projects would mean that, both directly and indirectly, Wilderness could reach more people, wildlife and places. The relationship between the Wilderness Group and the Trust is therefore symbiotic. In many projects supported financially by the Trust, Wilderness is able to contribute through logistics and in-kind support (e.g. equipment; manpower; fuel; vehicle servicing; access; accommodation) to ensure the enhanced viability of the work. On the other hand, the fact that the Trust is independent also means that it is able to engage with projects beyond the geographic scope of Wilderness Safaris’ camps and concessions and ensure that conservation is the driving force. The Trust focuses its work in three key areas: i) research and conservation, ii) community empowerment and education, and iii) anti-poaching and management.
