Kwando Conservancy on the go

Apart from the revenue it generates from hunting and sales of Devil’s claw, the Kwando Conservancy has developed a business unit through which it attracts customers from afar. The nursery produces Moringa and Mango trees, amongst others. They sell to churches, schools and community at large.

The nursery is managed by two conservancy workers under the supervision of Ms. Brideness who is the Enterprise Manager for the conservancy.

The conservancy is also optimistic about the joint venture negotiations to build a lodge in Bwabwata National Park. If successful, the joint venture will see a number of conservancy members trained and employed under various capacities to provide tourism products and services to the visitors to the lodge.
