LATEST NEWSLETTER

 

Dear SLCS friends and supporters,

THE LUANGWA CONSERVATION AND COMMUNITY FUND

In 2011, the second year of donations from the LCCF, we raised $90,000 and hope to raise even more in 2012. 100% of all funds raised go directly towards conservation in the Luangwa Valley and in 2011 already allowed us to employ more scouts. Thanks to all the tourists visiting South Luangwa who generously donate this amount and thank you to the supporting lodges namely, Mfuwe Trails and the Bush Camp Company, Robin Pope Safaris, Flatdogs Camp, Kafunta River Lodge, Croc Valley Camp, Remote Africa Safaris, Shenton Safaris and Luangwa River Lodge. Their support and dedication to conservation in Luangwa is invaluable.

Rivers, swamps, lakes and varied vegetation create unique habitats for wildlife. Shaped like a butterfly spreading its wings in the heart of Africa, Zambia is a fascinating and exciting country. Culturally rich, with 73 languages, Zambia's people are its greatest delight.
