One of their dreams when they first started Pumba in 2004, was to return the land, making up the reserve, to its natural state. Their efforts to remove traces of land exploitation, re-introduce endemic fauna, eradicate alien vegetation and provide a sanctuary for natural and endangered animals have largely been achieved, with their commitment not only focusing on building an eco-tourism business, but also supporting and uplifting their local communities, which form an integral part of their operation.
A Legacy of hope for a brighter tomorrow!
Born from a strong desire to leave a legacy for our children and future generations, the Pumba Conservation and Social Responsibility Foundation was established in June of this year to work tirelessly to create a brighter tomorrow through COMMUNITY UPLIFTMENT, EDUCATION, RESPONSIBLE TOURISM as well as the CONSERVATION, REHABILITATION and PROTECTION of our natural environment.
They invite you to share in PUMBA’S LEGACY OF HOPE, to conserve our natural environment, make a difference and have a lasting impact – one person, one animal, one insect, one tree, one plant… at a time…
In order to grow PUMBA’S LEGACY OF HOPE, they are introducing a foundation levy on new reservations made from 01 November 2018. All donations and levies collected will be administered by the Foundation’s Trustees (TR Lombard, DH Howarth and AM Murrell) and recently appointed Conservation and Foundation Manager (Neale Howarth) and directed towards conservation initiatives and projects identified by the local communities.
The foundation levy of R150 per adult paying guest, per night, will be non-commission and added as a separate item on all tour operator and agent invoices from 01 November 2018.
