The SDG's

“It is vital that we design a new business model for development in Africa because sustainable growth and prosperity can only be achieved by valuing and preserving the natural resources and diverse ecosystems that are the foundation of our continent’s beauty and richness.”

Our Flagship Community Initiatives

Our social enterprise is dedicated to making a positive impact in rural communities within the breathtaking landscapes of the Greater Kruger Region of Mpumalanga.

We are passionate about creating opportunities, revenue streams, and sustainable solutions for both people and wildlife.

At our core, we believe in the power of collaboration. By working closely with investors, government departments, and local stakeholders, we are actively involved in the development and enhancement of rural areas in South Africa. Together, we strive to create a better future for all.


Enviro Poles

Fencing may seem like a simple concept, but we understand its profound significance. Proper fencing not only protects biodiversity but also plays a crucial role in reducing human-wildlife conflict. Through our affordable fencing solutions, we aim to provide a safe and secure environment for both communities and wildlife to coexist harmoniously. Sustainability is woven into the fabric of our mission.

The Pink Hive

The "Pink Hive" initiative, which utilizes non-lethal bee hive fences to create safe migration routes for elephants, we are committed to eco-friendly practices that promote conservation and long-term environmental health. But our work goes beyond just protecting wildlife. We are invested in the well-being and empowerment of rural communities. Through training, mentoring, and development programs, we ensure that our initiatives have a lasting impact, fostering a sense of pride and ownership among those we work with.

Our Safari lodge’s unique selling points lie in its INNOVATIVE APPROACH to community engagement, SKILLS DEVELOPMENT, entrepreneurship, and sustainable social impact.

By offering guests a transformative and ENRICHING EXPERIENCE that goes beyond traditional safari lodges, our lodge stands out as a SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE, culturally immersive, and impactful destination that values COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT, creativity and authenticity.


Our eco lodge development project stands out due to our commitment to community development. It is such a vital part of our core values that we have incorporated two vital components to our business model:


The training school offers valuable skills and opportunities for community members to gain EMPLOYMENT in the lodge industry, start entrepreneurial ventures, facilitate other business opportunities around elements within their communities and as such it allows them to break the cycle of exclusion.

The media component allows us to document our processes and share them through streaming platforms or potential broadcasters, showcasing the positive impact of our project and adding another revenue stream to our system.

We also get to train community members in the documentary industry, giving them the OPPORTUNITY to become freelances within the visual space of filmmaking, documenting and storytelling.
