Investing in People
Community empowerment is of utmost importance to Babanango Game Reserve. Babanango Game Reserve has partnered with its surrounding communities to create and sustain economic opportunities and ensure social development. We focus on true sustainability and more than just conserving the environment, Babanango is a ground-breaking conservation project that will benefit local communities and protect precious wildlife for future generations to enjoy
The Reserve currently comprises several private game farms and community land owned by the Emcakwini Community Trust. Additional community owned land in the area has been earmarked for incorporation into the Reserve, thereby bringing on board other Community Trusts and their respective beneficiary members. These communities will benefit from the project through various initiatives undertaken by the dedicated African Habitat Conservancy Foundation.
The AHC Foundation is a non-profit organisation through which African Habitat Conservancy’s corporate social responsibility programmes can be implemented. These include the AHC Bursary Programme and support of community-based projects, such as the sponsorship of schools and clinics in the region.
