African Wildcats Expeditions
African Wildcats Expedition is a project of social involvement on it’s own. Run by local safari-guides it provides decent incomes, local work and education for 2 Tanzanian families. It fits in the new spirit of modern Tanzania; this local start-up is here to stay and especially the personal atmosphere improves the organisation,the structure and the quality of the safaris. Due to modern technique –like internet and email- we skip the layers between the actual safari and the customer, what a relieve…
In our modest small office with hand-made local furniture at the Nelson Mandela road , we can make an appointment with the client anyway, but our comfort zone is and will be the Serengeti!
Trees against erosion
Due to dry years with hardly any rainfall combined with heavy rainfall in a short period the soil is aggressively washed away. This process is accelerated by cutting trees for charcoal and houses. The population of resident people has grown the last decades and the fight against erosion is still young. We have to teach especially young people to replace trees when wood is harvested; soil which disappeared will not come back by itself. Planting young trees in the wet season is one solution; we can repair the soil-layer in combination with water-control during heavy rainfalls. Every safari will get it’s own donated AWE-tree in the valley where John Sung’are lives.
Every day elephants and rhino’s are still killed!! African Wildcat Expeditions Ltd is looking for a local person, who is personally involved in the fight against poaching. We will follow this person from time to time. When we have found this man/woman we keep you posted.
