Children in the Wilderness (CITW) has partnered with professional soccer player, Gordon Gilbert to launch Soccer in the Wilderness – an inspirational programme combining the fun of sport with education to raise environmental awareness in local communities in Zimbabwe and Zambia. Gordon has played professionally for Kaizer Chiefs, Mpumalanga Black Aces and Moroka Swallows, to name a few, and is a wildlife enthusiast committed to making a difference. From 5 to 9 November 2013, the inaugural Soccer in the Wilderness clinics took place at Sinde Football Club, Twabuka Middle School and with Wilderness Safaris’ staff at Toka Leya Camp in Zambia and Jabulani Primary School in Zimbabwe.
I have tried looking through the archives but can't find anything very useful on this topic. Every safari company makes the right noises and claims to be 100% in favor of eco-tourism and conservation, but the more I read about their activities and affiliations, the less I am able to separate the wheat from the chaff. Specifically interested in the Botswana chains at this time, though would be glad to hear your thoughts about any facility/company anywhere in sub-Saharan Africa. Are any of them markedly better than the others in this regard? All of them appear to have some level of community involvement, but do any of them go above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to treading softly on the land? Also interested in your opinion about any independent/community concessions/lodges that may exist outside the big chains in Botswana. Thanks all - any advice will be much appreciated.
