The Lower Zambezi and South Luangwa are two of the few conservation success stories in modern times. This is due to a small group of Zambia safari operators banding together, initially forming and supporting Conservation Lower Zambezi (CLZ), which facilitates all the conservation activity in the Lower Zambezi. CLZ is a role model that has been emulated with varying degrees of success in Africa, including in the South Luangwa where its own Conservation South Luangwa (CSL) is going from strength to strength. Nowhere else stand facilities with such support, providing such effective conservation activity. For instance, significantly reducing levels of poaching, whereas elsewhere in Africa this scourge is on the rise.
A recent significant milestone was Chiawa Camp and Old Mondoro becoming the world’s first certified Carbon Neutral safari camps, which paved the way for the Lower Zambezi National Park to become the world’s first certified Carbon Neutral National Park, through our support to Biocarbon Partners’ Redd+ project which protects more than 1 million hectares of Zambian forests including along the boundary of the Lower Zambezi National Park. This project has now expanded into the South Luangwa and so Puku Ridge & Chichele Presidential Lodge will add their support to protecting these vital forests, woodlands and habitats.
